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.

The celebration continued in the clubhouse where the Red Sox gathered and prepared to spray champagne.

To open their league championship series, the Red Sox and Houston Astros are sticking with their rotation from the ALDS.

Dent's home run over Fenway Park's Green Monster in the 1978 AL East tiebreaker propelled the Yankees to their second straight World Series title, but Boston eliminated its rival in the Bronx in the teams' second straight postseason meeting.

The Red Sox made it 4-0 when Vazquez lined a 2-1 fastball into the right field seats off Zach Britton. Had it hit him, while he was making his way out of the bullpen onto the field, it would've hurt.

While these deals sometimes fall apart at the last minute, one source told Kotaku that it was merely "a matter of when, not if". Behind the scenes Microsoft is picking up some quite formidable game development studios to battle the goliath of Sony.

New York Yankees fans probably aren't too happy with the folks in charge of Major League Baseball's official Twitter account.

Sabathia continued to express his frustration, adding that it was "sad" that Hernandez was chosen as the umpire for playoff games. "He's absolutely bad. He was awful behind the plate today; he's bad at first base".

Hernández was Game 4's home plate umpire while Sabathia was on the mound. Four plays at first base were reviewed in the first four innings, and three were overturned.

After striking out only one batter during his three innings of work on Tuesday, the 38-year-old left-hander again sounded off on Hernandez's work, taking a moment out of his postgame press conference to blast the veteran.
