David Price Savages Alex Bregman From Dugout After Massive Whiff

David Price Savages Alex Bregman From Dugout After Massive Whiff”

It's just one of those things where it just takes effort.

Toppling the world champion Astros in five games was quite another.

Verlander's 13 career postseason wins rank fourth in Major League Baseball history, trailing only Andy Pettitte (19), John Smoltz (15) and Tom Glavine (14).

After winning the series opener at Fenway Park, the Astros lost four straight to the Red Sox.

"Boston is a ideal 5-0 in road games this postseason, with two wins in NY in the ALDS and three in Houston in the ALCS", notes CBSSports.com's Katherine Acquavella.

Any Red Sox fan could have recited the terrible numbers: 11 starts, 0-9 record, 6.16 ERA. They out-hit the Astros this series.

It was a flawless 43rd birthday present for rookie manager Alex Cora, who became the first skipper from Puerto Rico to take a team to the World Series.

"I felt good. I think it kind of just all boils down to having a game plan and obviously executing", Bradley told reporters after the game. That was very, very special.

Game 5 of the ALCS was a case study in the power of faith, destiny, miracles and the reverse lock.

Price, with his record of futility - winless in 11 starts - as a postseason starter, looked like he would be a cross between roadkill and sacrificial lamb considering the steep odds against him and the team before the game started. However, Boston scored eight runs in Games 3 and 4 and another four while Verlander was on the mound in Game 5, so it could very well be in their heads. The Martinez home run in the third inning ruined Verlander's streak of 26 consecutive scoreless innings in elimination games, the longest such streak in postseason history. He went six innings and allowed no walks and only three hits, with nine strikeouts. I said it past year: Playoffs, it's flip a coin sometimes. Houston was shut out five times in Verlander's starts on its home field in 2018.

In the first inning for the Houston Astros in Game 4, Jose Altuve was denied a two-run homer after fans reaching for the ball interfered with Mookie Betts attempt to make a leaping catch.

Was getting a postseason win enough for Price?

"It sucks", said Houston manager A.J. Hinch.

What the ump says: "Here's the whole play", says Joe West.

"We've been doing this all year. It's one of those things you get put on this stage, it's a bigger platform". There they defeated the Oakland A's to advance to the ALDS to set up a battle with their rivals the Boston Red Sox.

They did just that, and they did it with unexpected ease and strength.

"I've always said that everybody on this team is all in", Benintendi said. "It's something you dream about as a kid, playing in the World Series and now we are". But, he only won 16 games in a year he probably should have won more than 20, thanks to abysmal run support. We lost to a great team.

"I don't listen too much to what's going on outside, but that one got me", he added.
