Fan almost nails Red Sox's Kimbrel with beer can

Luke Voit walked on four pitches, and Kimbrel hit Neil Walker on a leg with his next pitch, forcing in a run. Steve Pearce stretched, falling on his chest for a sprawling catch.

A Yankee Stadium crowd of 49,641 wondered and the Red Sox paused as they watched from the infield in suspended celebration, fixated on the center-field video board. After 63 seconds, the original was upheld, and Boston formally began celebrating advancing to its 11th ALCS and first since beating Detroit in 2013. He held the Yankees to one run on four hits.

NY got its first run on Brett Gardner's sacrifice fly in the fifth. The fifth was where he encountered his most significant threat.

Trailing in Game 4 of the AL Division Series, the Yankees scored twice in the ninth and had runners at first and second with two outs.

They scored three in the third off Sabathia (0-1), and it started with a sacrifice fly by Martinez. Both bouts will take place at Fenway Park. Holt and Devers returned to the bench as Kinsler and Nunez re-entered the starting lineup.

When Boone brought in Zach Britton to start the fourth, Christian Vazquez led off with an opposite-field drive over the short porch in right field for his first career post-season homer.

Matt Barnes got two groundouts in a scoreless sixth, Ryan Brasier pitched a ideal seventh and Chris Sale ended a scoreless eighth by striking out Hicks.

But Price did have some success in his two starts against the Astros in the regular season, going 1-0 while allowing five earned runs over 12.1 innings of work.

Boston recorded its fourth straight postseason win in NY. The Red Sox outscored the Yankees 20-4 the rest of the way and clapped back at Judge by spraying Champagne around the visiting clubhouse to the classic Frank Sinatra tune.
