Eovaldi to start Game 3 instead of Porcello

Surely they haven't been able to shampoo the rug yet.

Yankee Stadium was hopping Monday night.

Nineteen days later, they will have the chance to do it all over again, to turn the visitors' clubhouse behind the third-base dugout into a temporary Delta House, this time to celebrate the final vanquishing of the 2018 Yankees. "He's rested, had a good week, and we're going with him".

India to Continue Iranian Oil Imports after US Sanctions
Hedge funds cut their bullish wagers on USA crude in the latest week to the lowest level in almost a year, data showed on Friday. In May, Trump withdrew from a multilateral nuclear deal with Iran and he re-imposed sanctions against Tehran.

The Red Sox are one dominant Nathan Eovaldi performance away from reclaiming home-field advantage in a series now tied at 1-1.

"It's do or die now", Yankees manager Aaron Boone said.

The Yankees will have to quickly turn the page and truthfully have to hope they are on the other side of a laugher in Game 4, because Boone's ability to spin a game out of control is enough to make fans cry.

Mahrez misses late penalty as Man City draw at Liverpool
Guardiola admitted after the game that his team were deeper than usual as they controlled Liverpool's rapid forward line expertly. The Premier League now takes a two-week break for the global window with City next in action at home to Burnley on October 20th.

The over is 8-1 in the last nine Yankees games overall. Those Sox weren't just being measured for a coffin, they were already placed inside.

From there, things only got worse for the Yankees. Should the Red Sox win Game 3, they have a former Cy Young Award victor pitching basically in his hometown (Porcello went to Seton Hall Prep) to try to advance Boston to the ALCS; if they lose, though, then they have the same former Cy Young Award victor pitching to keep them alive instead of a wild card in Eovaldi. The way they did in September.

Starter Luis Severino yielded a run in the second followed by two more in the third. There will be time aplenty to offer appropriate appreciation for all he's been here, for all he accomplished here, just not yet.

Trade pact clause seen deterring China trade deal with Canada, Mexico
The deal reached Sunday gives farmers greater access to the Canadian dairy market, a big win for the Trump administration. President Trump has praised the new trade deal, deeming it a "wonderful" and "historic" trilateral agreement.

"The pitch to Sanchez was down and away, but he was leaning out there, get the head out and hit it out of the ballpark", Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. "But I can tell you it's an honor to be mentioned in the same sentence as him, a legend of baseball", Sanchez said. "It's all the same now". He entered the game as a pinch-runner for Millar (again) after Millar walked (again) with no outs in a one-run game. But on Saturday night, the player feeling the crush of those walls, and hearing the vitriol of the crowd, wore the home-white trousers and home-red jersey of the Red Sox. The Yankees won't need Sabathia to dominate the Sox, just keep them close, keep them in striking distance, maybe let them to take a shot against the Boston bullpen late in a tight game. Boone's career with the Yankees ended that winter, when he tore his ACL in a pickup basketball game, violating the terms of his contract, leading to his release in late February. Lynn walked Mookie Betts on four pitches to force in a run, then served up a bases-clearing double to Andrew Benintendi, pushing the lead to 7-0. "Nobody I'd rather have out there". So when the embattled lefty's name was called during player introductions before Game 3 of the series at Yankee Stadium on Monday, the Bronx crowd greeted Price with a warm ovation and chants of "M-V-P".
