Boston did so with class, pure joy and a hint of pettiness.

The Red Sox clinching Game 4 victory over the Yankees was the most-watched program on cable Tuesday night and the most-watched Division Series game on TBS since 2007, the network said. NY set a major league record this year for most home runs in a season, but didn't go deep in the two games at Yankee Stadium and hit.214 in the series, which included 3 for 14 by Gregorius, 1 for 15 by Andrew McCutchen and 3 for 15 by Sanchez.

Kimbrel, who finished with 42 saves during the regular season, went on to struggle in the bottom of the ninth, allowing two runs on one hit and two walks before closing the door on the Yankees' season.

Game 1 is Saturday night in Boston.

The Red Sox advance to the AL Championship Series, where they will host Houston Astros in Game 1 on Friday. Between Ryan Brasier, Heath Hembree, Eduardo Rodriguez, Brandon Workman, Matt Barnes and Joe Kelly, Boston had allowed five runs in 13 innings pitched with two of those leaving the park. He held the Yankees to one run on four hits.

Xander Bogaerts advanced Pearce with a comebacker and, with David Robertson starting to warm up, Sabathia threw a wild pitch on a cross-up with Sanchez.

The career Major League Baseball umpire was stationed behind the plate for Tuesday's ALDS Game 4, just one day after he had three close calls at first base overturned in. "He was awful at first base". Perhaps the only person who had a worse Game 3 than Boone or Severino was umpire Angel Hernandez.
