Benintendi, Red Sox hold off Astros for 3-1 ALCS lead

Benintendi, Red Sox hold off Astros for 3-1 ALCS lead”

Right now, Red Sox outfielders like Houston a lot more than Houston likes Red Sox outfielders in the Major League Baseball playoffs. A report by 92.3 The Fan, a radio station in Cleveland, said that the Indians also removed a man wearing an Astros media credential from the camera bay in Game 3 of the Division Series at Progressive Field.

Roberto Osuna is pulled by manager AJ Hinch after a grand slam home run by Jackie Bradley Jr.in the eighth inning during Game Three of the American League Championship Series at Minute Maid Park on October 16, 2018 in Houston, Texas.

I'm guessing today. Boston's ace, Chris Sale, will miss his scheduled start in Game 5 due to an illness, forcing David Price to take his place. He also threw two wild pitches in his first outing for the Astros since the regular-season finale on September 30. And we don't get caught up in the whole paranoia thing [with] the signs. And considering Eovaldi may have been sequestered in the bullpen and Eduardo Rodriguez in the rotation the Red Sox and a very gutsy manager Alex Cora made the right move. They'll need seven innings of quality work from Verlander, and he's certainly capable of that, JV held the Red Sox to only two earned runs in six innings of work in Game 1 at Fenway Park, and we expect more of the same on Thursday. "It's tough. That was two runs in the first inning that would have helped us a bit more".

The Post noted that "there was no indication of any suspicious activity during Game 3 ... but the Red Sox were careful to change their pitch-calling signs" throughout the night, something manager Alex Cora said is fairly standard.

George Springer was 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in yesterday's loss to Boston.

The Sox toppled the reigning World Series champs, 8-6, in Game 4 Wednesday night. However, after recording two quick outs in the sixth, James surrendered a double to Christian Vazquez before Bradley pounced on James' off-speed offering.

However, he has never won a postseason start in his career and against the Yankees in the ALDS, he lasted just 1.2 innings and gave up three runs.

"I blacked out", said leftfielder Andrew Benintendi. In the bottom of the first, with a man on and a 2-0 deficit, hobbled Astros DH José Altuve lined a ball into the rightfield stands-almost.

Benintendi's second double came in the fifth and he scored on a two-out single by Bogaerts to tie it at 4. So the Astros have that going for them.

The over is 8-2 in the last 10 Red Sox games following a win.

Bradley joined Nomar Garciaparra (1998) as the only Red Sox players to have at least three RBIs in three straight postseason games.

Major League Baseball released a statement Wednesday saying that the Astros weren't the only team accused of spying as it related to sign-stealing, and after a thorough investigation the case was closed without any discipline.
