For the first time since 2004, the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees are playoff opponents.
Game one of the American League Division Series on Friday night went to the Red Sox. Solid pitching performances, matched with J.D. Martinez’s first inning home run propelled Boston to a 5-4 victory.
David Price’s playoff woes continued in game two as the starting lefty suffered three runs on three hits in less than two innings. Gary Sanchez went yard twice for the Yankees, driving in 4 runs and the Red Sox fell 6-2.
Game three in New York premieres at 7:40 tonight.
