It came back to bite him as the Red Sox went on to win Game 3 in NY by 15 runs and then squeaked by the Yankees last night by a single run.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch announced the Astros starters for the first two games of the American League Championship Series, which will begin in Boston on Saturday.

According to one Yankees person, Severino was tipping his pitches.

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

At one point, NESN's broadcast showed Jackie Bradley the dugout, his hand not quit covering his mouth, saying "fastball" to Mookie Betts on an 0-and-2 pitch to Brock Holt in the second inning that was, in fact, a four-seam fastball that Holt fouled off to stay alive.

After managing to outlast the Yankees during a 4-3 nailbiter in the Bronx, the Red Sox didn't play "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" by the Dropkick Murphys in the clubhouse, even though that's what they were going to do following their celebration.

The pitch tipping wasn't the only controversy regarding Severino in Game 3.

During the AL wild-card game last week, another Yankees fan dumped a beer on an Oakland A's fan at Yankee Stadium.

Teams nowadays tend to study video on opposing pitchers for hours on end, so hurlers must be diligent about not giving off any tells that their opponents can pick up on.

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