— Yankees third base coach Phil Nevin has tested positive for COVID-19, the team announced before Tuesday’s game against the Rays, calling it a “breakthrough positive” since Nevin had been fully vaccinated. Manager Aaron Boone said there are other staff members and coaches “still pending,’’ and some staff members had been sent home. Nevin was under quarantine in Tampa. First base coach Reggie Willits also wasn’t with the team Tuesday, with Mario Garza, the organization’s coordinator of baseball development, filling in at first and bench coach Carlos Mendoza coaching third.

The Yankees had something cooking in the top of the sixth inning in the AL Wild Card Game. They scored their first run of the game on an Anthony Rizzo home run to make it 3-1 Boston. Then Aaron Judge reached on an infield single, bringing Giancarlo Stanton to the plate with one out and the Red Sox leading 3-1.

Stanton, who crushed a ball in the first off the Green Monster, hit an absolute bullet off the wall in deep center. Nevin, who is the Yankees’ third base coach, sent Judge. Judge was easily thrown out at home by a nice relay from the Red Sox.

  Yankees 6, Red Sox 3: Sweep complete as Judge, Stanton rescue defense Four runs in the eighth inning, courtesy of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, powered Yankees to a Fenway sweep.The Yankees’ bats were stifled by Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez through the first four innings and they trailed 1-0, with the only excitement being the five-minute delay that occurred during Giancarlo Stanton’s at-bat in the fourth because the fire alarms were going off in the stadium. In the fifth, however, they finally remembered that it’s a lot easier to score when you put multiple runners on base at once.

Given how hard Stanton hit the ball and that Judge was on first, Nevin should have known to hold Judge at third. Instead, he sent the big man to the plate, and the Red Sox got him out easily for a huge save.

The Yankees would have had runners on the corners (or second and third) with one out in a 3-1 game. Instead they ended up with a runner on second and two outs for Joey Gallo, who popped out to end the inning.

Here is a sampling of the criticism Nevin faced on Twitter immediately:

If Nevin gets replaced this offseason, you’ll know why.
