Fan almost nails Red Sox's Kimbrel with beer can

With the Boston Red Sox leading the host New York Yankees 4-1 before the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday night, a fan in the stands threw a beer can toward Kimbrel, who was heading out of the bullpen toward the field.

All of that, and she was raised in Highbridge, "nine blocks from Yankee Stadium".

"BIG, BIG PAPI" was also feeling himself after the win, taking to social media to let everyone know he's still with the Red Sox in spirit.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora confirmed on Ordway, Merloni & Fauria Wednesday afternoon that the left-hander will start Sunday night against the Astros, and as expected, Chris Sale will start Game 1. Kinsler made it 2-0 with a double over Gardner's head in left, and Nunez made it 3-0 with a single to left. He's their ace and will pitch multiple times in this series. NY found itself in a 4-0 hole during a win-or-go-home Game 4 in Yankee Stadium, and despite coming close to a dramatic ninth inning comeback, the Red Sox sealed their ALDS tilt with a 4-3 victory. The 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor entered with a 0-3 in 12 previous postseason appearances, which included four starts. He pitched 6.1 innings of two-run ball against Houston on Sep. He held the Yankees to one run on four hits.

New York's starting pitchers allowed 15 runs in 13 innings, and Masahiro Tanaka was the only one to get an out in the fourth - a sign the Yankees may pursue top free-agent pitchers such as Dallas Keuchel and Patrick Corbin.

Sabathia's criticism mirrors that of three-time Cy Young victor Pedro Martinez, who sounded off on Hernandez's controversial calls on Monday night when three of his decisions at first base were overturned upon replay review.

"I think we're right there knocking on the door", Boone said, "very close to being a championship club right now". Benintendi argued after he was called out on a breaking ball with the bases loaded for the final out of the eighth, a pitch that may have been outside.

"He was bad behind the plate today, he's awful at first base", Sabathia continued. Four plays at first base were reviewed in the first four innings, and three were overturned.

Angel Hernandez is a horrific umpire and it's insane Major League Baseball keeps running him out for playoff games.
