Scoring didn't take long to commence. With two on in the B1st, Red Sox DH J.D. Martinez drilled a pitch from J.A. Happ out to LF in about 1.8 seconds. Boston 3, New York 0.
Next, Kimbrel induced a slow grounder from Yankees 2B Gleyber Torres; the hurried throw from 3B Nunez forced 1B Steve Pearce to lay out to make the play—which was dramatically upheld upon review. Kimbrel sighed in relief, and the Red Sox moved on to the ALCS.
