Red Sox edge Astros to level playoff series

  • Tony Kemp not in Houston's Game 1 lineup

When players for both teams were introduced before the first series game in Houston, Sale lined up with the Red Sox along the third-base line. "Because you win three more games, you go to the show, and that's what should motivate you". "Thats my first team win as a starter". Cora told reporters after the implosion against the Yankees that he was not considering demoting Price to the bullpen, and he told Price before the Red Sox had even shed their jerseys in favor of ALDS CHAMPIONS shirts that he would have Game 2, but Price's history so far is that of perhaps the worst starting performance in 114 years of baseball postseasons.

In his 11th try, Price didn't pick up his first win in a playoff start.

Manager Alex Cora said "everything is fine" and Sale would be back with the team before Game 3 on Tuesday.

Tuesday will be Keuchel's ninth postseason start and first since allowing four hits and two runs in five innings of Houston's 11-3 win over the Indians in Game 3 of the Division Series on October 8.

The Red Sox took a 1-0 lead two batters into the bottom of the first when Betts doubled to deep center and scored on Benintendi's single.

Bradley's double to left in the third inning plated Xander Bogaerts, Steve Pearce and Rafael Devers to put the Sox up, 5-4.

Following Sale's disappointing start, veteran pitcher David Price struggled to get through four innings. He allowed three runs and got just five outs in Game 2 against the Yankees, the only Red Sox loss in the series.

Kimbrel gave up a two-out double to George Springer, who then scored on a single by Jose Altuve.

The game skidded to a halt in the sixth inning after Jackie Bradley Jr. was tagged out by catcher Martin Maldonado on a nubber in front of the plate. As the ball bounced back toward the infield, it hopped on the padding along the side wall, just out of Gonzalez's reach. Stronger in starting pitching, deeper in the bullpen, more varied on offence and incredibly well-coached, it's nearly as if an opponent needs to play a flawless game to get the better of them. Betts added an RBI double in the eighth off Hector Rondon.

Some excited Astros fans may have thought Bregman had gotten all of it, but he knew better.

Price said he appreciated the standing ovation, and said his only concern was that the Red Sox win the game.

"I didn't do my part", Betts said after Game 1 on Saturday. "I understand the narratives". Gerrit Cole faced eight Red Sox batters and allowed two runs in the first inning. But this is bigger than David Price.

Game 7 (if necessary): Sunday, Oct. 21: Astros at Red Sox, 6:39 p.m. But I don't throw a ball. "The line's going to (look) a little bit tougher on him than he pitched". "But the less of those (bases-loaded) at-bats that we can get, the better, because he's a ticking time bomb to do some kind of damage".

The fastball stayed up in the zone, and Gonzalez crushed it.

The View from the Dugout starts about 15 minutes before the first pitch of every game, home or away, and then again right after the game ends.

The Red Sox had Rodriguez make four relief appearances at the end of the regular season to prepare him for his postseason role, so he hasn't made an actual start in almost four weeks now.
