Game Recaps

Red Sox RHP Nathan Eovaldi earned the win in Tuesday's Wild Card matchup against the Yankees, allowing just one earned run on four hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact: Eovaldi struck out eight and didn't walk anyone. It was a fantastic performance from the right-hander, and Boston now advances to face the Tampa Bay Rays in the ALDS. By both fWAR and bWAR, Eovaldi was one of the best pitchers in the American League this season.

Yankees RHP Gerrit Cole was tagged for three earned runs in just two innings of work on Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact: Cole simply didn't have his trademark command in this one, and it led to multiple walks and multiple homers being allowed. The 2021 American League Cy Young candidate had a strong, if uneven, regular season. However, he became noticeably less consistent following MLB's ban on "sticky stuff." Cole will remain a bonafide SP1 heading into 2022 fantasy drafts, but this latest playoff loss will sting throughout the offseason.
