Astros Vs. Red Sox

Astros Vs. Red Sox

David Price has now made 11 postseason starts in his career and is still seeking his first win. The Red Sox are carrying just 11 pitchers for the ALCS, but Eduardo Rodriguez could provide multiple innings in relief.

Through their first four playoff games this fall, the Astros outscored their opponents 28-8, a run that included a dominant three-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians in the ALDS.

The $217 million man was all right in the ALCS - a marked improvement from his last start - and greeted by a standing ovation when he walked off the field in the fifth inning. He was OK; good not great, but much better than the 0-9 record that gets splashed just about everywhere whenever Price toes the rubber in the playoffs. In the fifth, he walked Bregman with one out and then, with two outs, he walked White.

But Price, who does have two wins as a reliever in the postseason and who went 16-7 during the 2018 regular season, has pitched well over his career against the Astros. He left Game 2 having limited enough damage for the Red Sox to win 7-5 and salvage a split of the first two games.

White knew he'd have to beat single tacklers going into the game, and simply elevated himself to make that happen in crunch time. But they left too much time on the clock for Brady, who marched his team down the field to set up the eventual winning kick.


While he wasn't able to earn that coveted W for his postseason resume, this was an encouraging outing from Price.

The Red Sox hit him harder than anyone has in quite a while on Sunday, however, a needed offensive outburst to counter Price's minor woes. He's scheduled to rejoin the club here at Minute Maid Park for Tuesday evening's Game 3.

"All bets are off right now", Porcello said in the pumped-up afterglow of Sunday's Game 2 win. His team prevailed in a must-win scenario.

"I don't really notice people in particular in the stands", he said. "I understand the narratives".

Hillary Clinton said, "No". " Absolutely not ", she replied when asked whether her husband should have resigned. When asked if her husband should have resigned from the presidency, Clinton said, " Absolutely not ".


"If I got it", Bregman said, "it would be on the street behind Fenway Park". This isn't about me.

Perhaps this explains the sub-par work of Red Sox ace Chris Sale in Saturday's Game 1 loss. Being a part of a winning effort on this stage is a positive step that should alleviate some of the pressure he faces every October. David Price would have to pitch on short rest, or Eduardo Rodriguez could start, though he hasn't thrown more than 44 pitches since September 20. "If it's baby steps, it's baby steps".

On Oct. 15, 1988, Gibson, playing on two bad legs, famously hit a two-run walkoff homer against Eckersley to give the Dodgers a 5-4 win against the A's in Game 1 of the World Series. He wasn't as fortunate in the second inning, when Carlos Correa beat out an infield single on a misplay by shortstop Xander Bogaerts. Springer took third on a wild pitch and scored on Jose Altuve's single off the Green Monster, but Kimbrel got the save when Benintendi made a twisting catch in front of the wall on Alex Bregman's fly ball to left.

Price's third inning was more his own doing. Sometimes, however, you can look at the starting pitching matchup and figure out one team has the edge. Price did not appear to let the miscues rattle him.
