During this postseason alone, he had given up three homers, seven earned runs, and eight hits in 6⅓ innings between Game 2 of the ALDS and Game 3 of the ALCS. Sale was hospitalized in Boston with a stomach issue after Game 1 but is here with the team and threw off of flat ground on Wednesday ...

"And I bet A.J. and their team feels the same way - if you don't play good defence against us we will score a lot of runs".

The Red Sox will host the victor of the Brewers-Dodgers NLCS. On Thursday night, starting on short rest for the first time since that 2008 season, he tossed six overpowering, scoreless innings as the Red Sox closed out an Astros team that less than a week ago appeared close to unbeatable.

Houston was trying to become the first team since the 2000 New York Yankees to win back-to-back rings. One situation in particular that came up was the Game 163 that decided the National League West division championship between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies. Houston won the 2017 World Series but fell just short this season. But a solo homer by J.D. Martinez in the third and a three-run opposite-field shot by Rafael Devers into the Crawford Boxes in the sixth highlighted Boston's grinding, unyielding, put-it-in-play with meaning offense. Springer homered before Altuve doubled high off the left-field wall and scored on a single by Josh Reddick.

"That was very, very special, absolutely", Price said after the game. They posed for a team picture on the mound a couple of minutes later as members of Houston's pitching staff slowly walked by, glancing at the revelry on their way back from the bullpen.

Price was 0-9 with a 6.16 ERA in 11 career postseason starts - tied with Al Leiter and Tim Hudson for the most consecutive playoff starts without a win.

Now, all eyes are on Game 5, a must-win for the Astros.

Verlander allowed 4 runs on 7 hits in 6 innings of work. And before that, Martinez was a part of the Astros organization before they released him in March 2014.

That was the basis for the argument made by Caldwell, who said, "I promise you I didn't do anything wrong".

Betts, one of the best defenders in the majors, said he had it all the way. They out-hit the Astros this series. It was left to right-hander Nathan Eovaldi, Boston's Game 3 starter, to secure the four outs that would get the game to Craig Kimbrel. One of the fans strongly denied during the game that he had committed interference, claiming that he never reached over the wall into the field of play.
