After the Red Sox's win, Cora announced that the team would start Price, who started Game 2 Sunday night at Fenway Park and allowed four runs in 4¹/₃ innings pitched, helping his team win, 7-5, for the first time in his 11 career postseason starts.

The final score of game four of the ALCS was 8-6, though the Houston Astros had a shot to win the game in the bottom of the ninth. First pitch is set for just after 7 p.m. central time.

Andrew Benintendi charged in hard and left his feet.

Cora said he has been concerned throughout the season about Red Sox signs being stolen.

It won't be easy for Boston, however, as the Astros hand the ball to Justin Verlander, who arguably has been baseball's best starting pitcher over the past two postseasons. In response to these calls, the Commissioner's Office reinforced the existing rules with all playoff Clubs and undertook proactive measures, including instituting a new prohibition on the use of certain in-stadium cameras, increasing the presence of operations and security personnel from Major League Baseball at all Postseason games and instituting a program of monitoring Club video rooms.

Kristen Bell thinks Snow White is a bad influence
In fact, one could even say that " Snow White " teaches a lesson in cheerful naivete regarding the witch's trick. She also uses the story to teach them about the dangers of talking to strangers and accepting gifts from them.

Both Dombrowski and manager Alex Cora said they did not feel that the Astros gained any advantage.

That plan was not cemented until the conclusion of Game 4, during which Price warmed up for an extended period late in the game.

"I thought I could catch it and timed it up well", Benintendi said.

Rafael Devers jump-started the offense with a first-inning single that drove home Betts and J.D. The Astros appeared to match that two-run rally in the bottom of the first against right-hander Rick Porcello before a controversial call temporarily preserved the lead for Boston.

Boston trailed by one with two outs in the sixth when Christian Vazquez doubled to deep right-center.

How to watch Lakers vs. Trail Blazers, LeBron's debut
With the addition of LeBron, Los Angeles are projected by bookmakers to win 13 more games than they did last season (48.5). And every game is so much fun because it's such an unbelievable atmosphere.

That's thanks in large part to a never-ending offensive attack that now has scored at least seven runs in each of the last three games - all wins for Boston. He finished 1-for-2 with the 2-run home run plus two walks.

The Red Sox will try to lock down the American League pennant with a most curious recipe: David Price on short rest. Betts uncorked an astonishing throw in the eighth to turn an easy Kemp double into an out; Astros rightfielder Josh Reddick made a diving catch an inning later to save three runs. Nearly simultaneously, the ball clipped Betts' glove and a collection of hands from eager fans, with right field umpire Joe West ruling Altuve out via fan interference.

As mentioned in a previous post, Eduardo Rodriguez has struggled immensely against the Houston Astros and playoff teams in general.

In Game 4 of the World Series a year ago, Giles came into a 1-1 tie in the ninth inning and was charged with three runs without getting an out in a loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
