The Red Sox carried a 4-1 lead into the ninth thanks to J.D. Martinez's sacrifice fly, run-scoring hits by Ian Kinsler and Nunez and a solo home run by Christian Vazquez. This did not appear to please Sabathia, who had a notable run-in with Hernandez back in April when he yelled at the umpire to "call f--ing strikes". "He shouldn't be anywhere near a playoff game". "He's absolutely bad. He was awful behind the plate today".
On Tuesday, Hernandez will shift behind the plate. "He was bad at first base".
Sabathia said he thinks there should be a way to remove an umpire from other games in a series after having a poor performance. We just got to continue to improve on the margins in every facet. His opponent, Cole, posted similar stats in his two starts (one win, one no-decision) against the Sox, pitching 13 innings, striking out 15, and allowing five runs.
"Throw the ball over the plate C.C". The case was moved last week from southern OH, where Hernandez's lawyer initially filed it, to NY after U.S. District Court Judge Michael R. Barrett ruled in favor of the league.
