David Price pitches Red Sox back into another World Series

Adjust Comment Print

Major League Baseball recently had to launch an investigation of the Houston Astros as the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox accused them of cheating by placing a man named Kyle McLaughlin in the camera well near the opposing team's dugout to try and steal signs.

Jackie Bradley, Jr. provided the big blow as he did in Game 3.

"We got 4 more wins". Houston won the 2017 World Series but fell just short this season.

Caldwell's immediate concern was for his safety, after being involved in a play that might have helped cost his team a crucial win. The Cubs, who were up 3-2 in the series, were eventually eliminated by the Marlins, and Bartman became an object of scorn in the Windy City.

Price tossed six innings of three-hit, shutout ball with no walks and nine strikeouts in Game 5 Thursday. The 35-year-old entered the day 4-0 with a 1.15 ERA over his last four postseason starts in which his team faced elimination.

Now the bad news, it was the Red Sox, who ousted the Astros. Houston had October stalwart Justin Verlander starting on full rest and Boston had October dud Price going on three days' rest between starts for the first time in his career, less than 24 hours after he had warmed to potentially pitch in relief in the Game 4 epic. That was very, very special, absolutely.

The Red Sox have retained this approach all season; they have maintained focus and toughness and maximized their talent base. Craig Kimbrel worked the ninth for his third save of the series.

Price left with a 4-0 lead.

Instead of a homer, Altuve was ruled out. "There was a lot of action in that game".

"I'm pissed off, we're all pissed off the Astros outfielder said after the Jose Altuve home run that wasn't in a gut-wrenching 8-6 loss on Wednesday that ultimately put their World Series defence in peril". If so, and if the fan in white was slightly over the wall at that moment, then the fan (s) who interfered also would have been slightly into the playing field at the moment of impact with Betts' glove. Ian Kinsler singled before Devers homered into the front row of the short porch in left.

The score stayed that way until the top of the sixth, when Verlander allowed a double to Mitch Moreland to start the inning.

The Red Sox dugout erupted with high fives and cheers as Devers rounded the bases while most of the stadium barring a sprinkling of Red Sox fans sat in stunned silence.

It was his first scoreless outing in 12 postseason starts.
