NEW YORK -- Brock Holt is sitting one game after becoming the first player in postseason history to hit for the cycle.

Both Holt and Rafael Devers are out of the Red Sox' Game 4 lineup after playing key roles in their team's 16-1 win over the Yankees. Ian Kinsler slides back into second base, with Eduardo Nunez manning third. Christian Vazquez does remain in the batting order, serving as Rick Porcello's batterymate. (It marks the first time Vazquez has caught Porcello.)

Alex Cora went with the matchups against Sabathia instead of the hot bats, with lefties hitting just .180 against the southpaw and right-handed hitters managing a .264 clip

Here is how Sabathia has fared against the Red Sox hitters:
