Of course, criticism of Hernandez is nothing new, as TBS analyst and Red Sox legend Pedro Martinez wasted no time ripping into Hernandez and his woeful performance at first base after Monday's Game 3 and then ripping him again before Game 4.
He finished with five RBI as Boston took a 2-1 series lead against NY.
"We were able to slip guys in", Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Tuesday night. But if you look at the first inning - and I know people have brought up, "Oh well, he got into trouble later on in the game" - first inning, he was all over the place.
At this point, a reunion with the Yankees seems the most likely outcome. Eovaldi allowed one run and five hits in seven innings, throwing 72 of 97 pitches for strikes. There were 11 hits given up, two of them home runs, and opponents hit.183 against them. After the game, Severino pushed back against the comments and denied having warmed up late. We will find out more postgame. And as bad of a night as it was for us, we got to turn the page. He hit the home run off Yankees catcher Austin Romine, who was in the game to give relievers a rest before Game 4.
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.
After "Brock Star" cemented his place in the history books, he received overwhelming praise from his teammates, his coaching staff, and Red Sox fans, while also revealing that he actually questioned his spot in the lineup before the game.More news: Watch Google's Pixel 3 Event Live Stream Right Here

"Throw the ball over the plate C.C". "I was on the railing and I had to step back and sit on the bench, 'cause I couldn't watch".
"But I would find that offensive, personally". But Craig did a hell of a job.
"I definitely want to play next year", Sabathia said. "I scooted up in the box a little bit, and I was going to be swinging at anything and try to hook anything. At the end of the day we got the win and we're looking forward to Houston".
Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia was the one who brought Judge's choice of music to the attention of manager Alex Cora, who knew it had resonated in the clubhouse.
CC Sabathia will start tonight with the season on the line and it'll be his third elimination game start since last season. The Red Sox infielder ended the night 4-for-6 with five RBIs and three runs scored.
