CC Sabathia Criticized Angel Hernandez After The Yankees' Elimination

"I told [Holt] it's a tough league", Cora said with a grin before Game 4. He tossed a 1-2-3 inning, then gave way to Ryan Brasier for the seventh. It was a defeat that made Boston's Game 1 victory look even less resounding, as the club barely held off a sustained rally from NY courtesy of its shaky bullpen.

Sale pitched a crucial scoreless inning in relief Tuesday night in the Red Sox's series-clinching win against the Yankees. He's their ace and will pitch multiple times in this series.

The Yankees never noticed, so Kimbrel got away with it.

Up next for the Red Sox is the ALCS, where they'll face the defending-champion Astros starting Saturday night in Boston.

Not even the presence of 1978 AL East tiebreaker star Bucky Dent for the ceremonial first pitch could inspire the 100-win Yankees, who were outscored 27-14 in the series, including 20-4 in the final two games. I think it was a sound decision. I'm not going to stand here and say I don't want to play any more baseball; my body feels great, and I feel healthy.

This obviously wasn't the only flying beer of note at Yankee Stadium this postseason, as a Yankees fan and A's fan went viral with their friendship after the former threw a beer at the latter in the immediate aftermath of the AL wild card game. NY found itself in a 4-0 hole during a win-or-go-home Game 4 in Yankee Stadium, and despite coming close to a dramatic ninth inning comeback, the Red Sox sealed their ALDS tilt with a 4-3 victory. Instead, according to Newsday's Tim Healey, he blames umpire Ángel Hernández.

Umpire Angel Hernandez was a major storyline for all the wrong reasons in Game 3, as three of his calls at first base were overturned by replay reviews. "He was bad at first base".

Hernandez, a 57-year-old born in Cuba, filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against Major League Baseball in 2017, claiming he has been passed over for promotions and postseason assignments.
