Red Sox Or Astros In ALCS?

While Luis Severino's pregame warmup was a major talking point that arose from Game 3 of the American League Division Series, there may have been a bigger problem for the New York Yankees hurler.

Game 1 (Boston): Oct. 13 - 8:09 p.m.

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.

Severino's line in three-plus innings of a 16-1 Yankees loss: six runs on seven hits and only two strikeouts.

Oct 9, 2018; Bronx, NY, USA; Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Craig Kimbrel (46) celebrates with teammates after defeating the New York Yankees in game four of the 2018 ALDS playoff baseball series at Yankee Stadium.

In watching the game, it looked as if the Red Sox knew what Severino was going to throw, and when; apparently that was the case.

Red Sox broadcaster Lou Merloni called attention to the possibility that Severino was tipping his pitches.

The pitch tipping wasn't the only controversy regarding Severino in Game 3. A video showing a conversation between Jackie Bradley Jr. and Mookie Betts seems to back it up, as JBJ appeared to guess that Severino was electing to throw a fastball on one particular pitch to Brock Holt in the game.
