Red Sox beat Astros to clinch AL East title

Red Sox beat Astros to clinch AL East title”

Altuve finished the season with a.346 average to easily win the batting title over Avasail Garcia of the Chicago White Sox; Colorado's Charlie Blackmon was the best in the NL, at.331. When the season began most people wouldn't believe that Pomeranz would have as a good of a season as he did and earn this spot to begin the playoffs.

More than two yards of fabric was used for the customized hat, which is almost three feet in circumference. He has the stuff to be a strong member of the Red Sox bullpen in October.

The start time for Game 3, the first of the series at Fenway Park, and the times for potential Games 4 and 5, have not been announced. The Yankees, who went 5-4 versus Boston in The Bronx this season, were 5 ½ games back on September 1 and still five games behind after losing to the Blue Jays on Sunday. The primetime evening slots were awarded to the other AL division series, between the Cleveland Indians and the team that wins Tuesday's Wild Card playoff (the Minnesota Twins or the New York Yankees). With the Sox, he has made more one-plus inning outings than he did earlier in his career, and in 12 such appearances since the start of 2016, he owns a very Kimbrellian 2.03 ERA and 40:5 K:BB ratio.

"Obviously, we've got a glut of great pitchers to choose from", McHugh said. When I pitch, the next day, I feel like I can pitch that day. I'm up for pitching. "But you're still looking to evaluate all the way through the final out". Pomeranz went 17-6 with a 3.32 era. Gurriel's sacrifice fly broke the 3-3 tie.

The Red Sox offense didn't play as well during the season as it seemed like it should have, given the talent: They hit the fewest homers in the American League, and their.736 OPS ranked 11th out of 15 teams in the circuit.

Although the Red Sox don't have the dominance that the Astros do. Farrell is the only manager ever to lead the Red Sox to three first-place finishes.

Red Sox: 2B Dustin Pedroia sat out his second straight game to rest a sore left knee.
