Why does everyone hate Angel Hernandez so much?

Why does everyone hate Angel Hernandez so much?

The Red Sox are a +168 underdog, while the total is set at 8.5 runs.

Before the big inning, Boston took a 3-0 lead on Vazquez's infield hit off Severino's glove in the second before getting two runs in the third on a sacrifice fly by Martinez and an RBI groundout by Rafael Devers. David Price suffered the loss as he surrendered three earned runs on three hits with two strikeouts over 1 2/3 innings.

With the home crowd behind him once again, Severino needs to control the strike zone early, and perhaps get a few more calls on the outside of the plate, than he did against Oakland - to keep his pitch count down. Obviously, you don't expect to hit a home run, but I was trying to. "I rounded the bases, and seeing everyone going nuts in the dugout was a pretty cool moment for me". "I don't think it's really quite settled in yet". And, in Game Two, he didn't let Masahiro Tanaka go through the middle of the lineup a third time even though Tanaka had pitched well up to that point.

Despite the minor blip in the radar, Severino will look to build off his solid, yet shortened Wild Card start - when he tossed four innings of shutout ball while striking out seven and allowing two hits.


Every starter had at least one hit for the Red Sox, who piled up 18 in all.

In their seven matchups this season, the Astros averaged 4.9 runs per game and the Red Sox averaged 4.4 runs per game. There was occasional barking about his decisions, and Benintendi argued after he was called out on a breaking ball with the bases loaded for the final out of the eighth, a pitch that may have been outside.

"We were able to slip guys in", Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Tuesday night.

Hernandez was working first base on Monday night.


Since losing Game 2 of the 2004 ALCS, the Red Sox have outscored the Yankees 34-9 in postseason games in the Bronx. Boone said Hicks was doing "significantly better", and sitting him was a much more hard decision than it was Saturday. Cora preferred the matchup of the right-handed Kinsler, rather than the left-handed Holt, to face Yankees lefty CC Sabathia.

But in Game 4, the Red Sox true relievers did their job.

He last started on September 27th, so he'll be on eleven days rest tonight, and this season he had a 2.01 ERA (3.88 FIP) in eight starts with six or more days rest. Sandy Leon had caught 32 of the righty's 33 regular-season starts, with Blake Swihart taking care of the other.
