Winners and losers from Red Sox ALCS victory over the Astros

Winners and losers from Red Sox ALCS victory over the Astros

The Red Sox were indeed fined past year for using an Apple Watch while trying to steal signs from the New York Yankees.

The former SC standout was named MVP of the ALCS after the Boston Red Sox defeated the Houston Astros, 4-1, on Thursday to win the best-of-seven series.

With the Sox slated to appear in their fourth World Series in 14 years Tuesday night, we took a look at a few roster quirks that'll make you smile. or furrow your brow. More importantly, the Astros struggled at Minute Maid Park all year and not much changed in the ALCS. Now he has to do it again, this time in the World Series. He got the job a month after Hurricane Maria devastated his island homeland, and immediately went to work helping with relief efforts.

In the top of the third inning, J.D. Martinez delivered a solo shot off Justin Verlander to break a scoreless tie.

"We got four more wins".

Cora was very pleased with the effort Price gave the team on three days rest in Game 5 Thursday night.

"On the controversial play, you could see Mookie Betts' glove come over the yellow line and, when he smacked against the wall, that closed his glove and all the gentleman, all their hands were behind the yellow line and all going for that wonderful Altuve home run", said Susan Brown.

Coming into Thursday's game Price had a career 6-2 record with a 2.94 ERA against the Astros. Based on the camera angle, it was about to be 4-3 and Reddick just crushed an upper deck homer. Instead, that session may have keyed his dominant performance.

"I'm happy that David showed up today", Cora said.

Day 5: Jayme Closs Search Continues
At a news conference Tuesday morning, Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said there was a Closs family gathering on Sunday afternoon. The deaths of James and Denise Closs, who had suffered gunshot wounds, were ruled homicides on Wednesday, Fitzgerald said.

Belichick says the Patriots are "pulling" for the Red Sox. And in Game 1, my fears were justified as the bullpen almost blew a 5-0 lead. Cora couldn't throw Price's disappearing changeups or fastballs that ran up to 96 miles per hour, but he's certainly put Price at ease since their first meeting prior to spring training. "We just needed to stay healthy and go out and execute", Bradley said. He only allowed one base runner, a big improvement, before getting Tony Kemp to fly out to Andrew Benintendi in left field to end the series and wrap up the AL pennant.

"I heard he wanted to spend the night here watching video", LeVangie said, via WEEI's Rob Bradford.

There was a smattering of boos from the home crowd as the Red Sox charged onto the field, embracing as they jumped around near the middle of the diamond. And which teams are a must-back? And they were getting outs before they were giving up runs.

Immediately after, David Price, who earned his own bit of redemption in the Red Sox's 4-1 win, could be seen yelling from the dugout, "Post that!" a clear reference to Bregman's trolling.

On his 43rd birthday, at the expense of the club he won a title with previous year and in his first season as a big league manager, Alex Cora is going back to the Fall Classic.

Martinez should have been retired on a strikeout looking for the second out of the inning. From Joe Kelly to Ryan Brasier to Matt Barnes to Craig Kimbrel, there are varying levels of mistrust associated with each Boston reliever.

On his 43rd birthday, Cora became the first manager from Puerto Rico to take a team to the World Series.

"It's a little sweeter, obviously", he said.

"Saying some prayers, hoping that they can just shake it off, get over what happened last night and go for it tonight and get the W", said Howard. It was a postseason that included the growing legend of playoff George Springer, one-legged Jose Altuve and the return of Mar-win Gonzales. "The whole playoffs, actually", he said.
