Astros pile on late, rout Red Sox in ALCS Game 1

Astros pile on late, rout Red Sox in ALCS Game 1

Some current and former Major League Baseball players, many of whom likely have, at best, mixed feelings about Joe West, seemed to find joy in the event. Springer added another double in the ninth inning of Game 2.

Kimbrel retired the first two batters in the ninth, then George Springer hit his second double of the game. The Red Sox beat the Astros, 7-5, to even the series at a game apiece.

Price fell one out short of qualifying for the win, which would have been his first in 11 postseason starts. In his 11th career playoff start, he allowed four runs on five hits in 4 2/3 innings. If Price can go 5 strong innings allowing no more than two earned runs, that gives the Sox a chance to salvage the first two games of this series by getting a win to split before heading to Texas for the next three.

"From what I know, it's nothing serious, but obviously, whenever you have to go to the hospital you gotta be, quote-unquote, worried".

"It's not that we're trying to hit him, but we have to let him know that we will pitch there because a year ago, going into the playoffs that's one thing I told that group". "They pitched their way out of it, but we didn't hit our way into it". "So that was big".

Price left leading 5-4 with two on with two out in the fifth before Matt Barnes struck out Gonzalez to end the inning and then pitched a ideal sixth to earn the victory. Yuli Gurriel put it out of reach with a three-run blast.

Around 9:30 p.m. ET last night, the Red Sox announced that Sale reported a stomach illness and was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital for observation earlier in the afternoon. Wasn't making a ton of pitches. "It's going to be a fun series, so we're looking forward to going back home".

Verlander issued his first bases-loaded walk since August 3, 2015, when he walked Mitch Moreland to make it 2-1. "If we can at least own one side of the plate, then we can expand the other side".

Mookie Betts doubled and later scored in his first at-bat off Cole last night and finished 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs.

Vazquez will start in place of Sandy Leon.

Boston responded in the bottom of the third, loading the bases with one out. He crashed to the ground, was attended to by a trainer for a few minutes and stayed in the game.

The atypical dimensions of left field at Fenway came into play earlier in the inning as well, when Steve Pearce's shot to left deflected off Gonzalez's glove as Gonzalez crashed into the wall. He's pretty good out there.

Cora said it's not an issue "because we know how we're going to work on it". He's got to make a decision on whether or not to concede the wall and try to play it off the wall or try to make a catch. "It's a well-placed hit".

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.
