Red Sox at Astros

  • Red Sox vs Astros

But once players stepped into the cage, taking their swings, there was no laughter. "We haven't played well yet, so we have to get back home and figure it out".

Boston hasn't been hitting in this American League division series, laying down in consecutive 8-2 losses in Houston. On Saturday, Dodgers' skipper Dave Roberts announced that he would consider removing his ace earlier in games, rather than pushing him to the seventh or eighth inning in order to preserve the bullpen.

Jose Altuve and the Astros are at Fenway Park, trying to finish off a sweep of the Red Sox in the AL Division Series. Cleveland beat Boston in three straight previous year. "We got to find a way to win".

Bogaerts' words may not be as flamboyant as Kevin Millar's, but the sentiment is the same.

Trailing 2-0 entering the bottom of the sixth inning, the Sox put together an improbable rally of the sort that had made the impossible seem possible all season-long, pushing across five runs to take a lead they never would relinquish. He would be allowed to play in the World Series if Boston makes it that far. Boston has a history of manager scapegoats, so anything is possible if the Red Sox get totally embarrassed in the series. The Red Sox really need to get their act together.

Boston's downfall hasn't only been the bats. Who's his opponent? Former Astros pitcher Doug Fister who was plucked at mid-season. In Fister's case, it was his career. In eight postseason starts, Fister has gone 4-1 with a 1.78 ERA. That's hardly Farrell's fault, and firing him won't solve anything if the Red Sox don't also sign outfielder J.D.

There have been a lot of ups in the postseason. He finished 15-0 with a 1.46 ERA at Minute Maid Park in 2015, and in the aforementioned ALDS start against the Kansas City Royals, he allowed one run on five hits with seven strikeouts over seven innings in a 4-2 victory.

After a bandh was enforced, BJP cadre walked on empty streets in Kannur, the home turf of Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan . The Supreme Court has already passed an order on it and the NIA is investigating it", News18 quoted the chief minister as saying.

David Price, the starter-turned-reliever with the $217 million contract, pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings for the Red Sox.

Manager John Farrell likes Fister's experience and the way he's throwing the ball lately.

"It's possible, yes", Farrell said. "Maybe slow down some of their right-handed hitters". When he had bases loaded at one point in the game you can tell though the TV that there was not a single person in the ballpark that wasn't chanting the three letters.

On the heels of a historic Game 1 performance by his infield partner Jose Altuve, Astros shortstop Carlos Correa was prepared for a shift in strategy by the opposition that would nullify Altuve and yield for Correa opportunities to produce with runners in scoring position.

The Boston Red Sox host the Houston Astros at Fenway Park beginning at 1:30 p.m.

Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts had an error that looked like it was pulled from a blooper reel earlier in the sixth when he caught a fly ball by Bregman then simply lost the ball as he tried to throw it back in. His ERA sat at 4.97, and after an underwhelming first season in Boston it was fair to wonder what he'd be able to contribute to the 2017 Sox.

Altuve just keeps getting ridiculous.
