Bradley's blast helps Red Sox take 3-1 series lead over Astros

Bradley's blast helps Red Sox take 3-1 series lead over Astros

When the Red Sox are going like this - getting contributions from the entire batting order - they're nearly impossible to defeat, and if the trends keep going that way, Hinch and the Astros will soon see their hope of a World Series repeat disappear.

It will always seem to us like a game of what-ifs: what if Andrew Benintendi hadn't caught Alex Bregman's liner in the bottom of the ninth?

Thursday night's game will be much different, with the Houston crowd screaming and yelling at him.

Major League Baseball acknowledged Tuesday night that it had investigated an incident Sunday, in which an Astros employee in the media camera well adjacent to the Red Sox dugout in ALCS Game 2 at Fenway Park reportedly was aiming a camera into the home dugout, The Washington Post reported.

Boston held on to claim a 3-1 series lead with Game 5 set for Thursday at Minute Maid Park.

The most important thing of the day: Did we mention Price hasn't had a win as a starter in 11 postseason starts?

"(Wednesday's) game will dictate what we do tomorrow", Cora said.

All anyone could talk about after Game 4 was a controversial play in the first inning in which the Astros' Jose Altuve had a would-be, two-run home run called back.

President Donald Trump , who also received a pair of Yeezys. "I'm being me and I'm punk", West told Levin. Just days before his visit with Museveni, West met in the Oval Office with U.S.


The Astros mounted the beginnings of a comeback in the bottom half of the inning, when Bregman scored on an Altuve ground-out, and then nearly scripted a Cinderella walk-off in the ninth. Miley pitched 5 2/3 shutout innings in Game 2 vs. the Dodgers, allowing two hits.

Red Sox ace Chris Sale was still feeling weak and trying to regain lost weight after a stomach illness forced him to spend a night in the hospital after he started the AL Championship Series opener against the Astros. After an Astros rally in the fourth inning, the Red Sox came storming right back with a single for an RBI.

Remember Alex Bregman's Instagram story?

The left-hander would become the first pitcher to start consecutive games for his team in one postseason since George Earnshaw of the Philadelphia Athletics in the 1930 World Series against the Cardinals, according to STATS.

However, he has never won a postseason start in his career and against the Yankees in the ALDS, he lasted just 1.2 innings and gave up three runs.

"No, I don't", he said. Nearly simultaneously, the ball clipped Betts' glove and a collection of hands from eager fans, with right field umpire Joe West ruling Altuve out via fan interference. Go with the Astros. Carlos Correa ended the contest 3-for-4 with a double, a walk and two RBIs.

Both Bradley and Eovaldi represent the second line of talent - not to be dismissive - but they are certainly not in the same rarefied level of the previously mentioned of the rotation and offense. Fans weren't happy, players weren't happy, it was just an all-around, game-altering judgment call that had the Astros chasing those two runs the entire game. They didn't the first time they faced Verlander in this series.

"I'm always concerned about [sign-stealing] throughout the season", Cora said after the game.
