Red Sox, Astros announce starting pitchers for ALCS Games 1 and 2

Grant SmithOct 11, 2018

"It's incredible that he's getting a job to umpire in these playoff games".

The ball died at the warning track, and Kimbrel got a groundout from Gleyber Torres to end the 4-3 win, finish the American League Division Series and send the Red Sox into a celebration on their rivals' home field for the second time in less than three weeks.

"I've been talking about them the whole season, so now we go", said Red Sox rookie manager Alex Cora, Houston's bench coach previous year. In the 2004 ALCS, the Red Sox became the first big league team to overcome 3-0 post-season deficit, winning the final two games on the road and going on to sweep the World Series for its first title since 1918. In 1⅔ innings, Price threw 42 pitches (24 strikes), struck out no batters, and gave up three earned runs.

"I think we're right there knocking on the door", Boone said, "very close to being a championship club right now".

On Wednesday night, after hanging on to beat NY 4-3 following a replay review of the final out, the Red Sox headed for the away clubhouse and did as every baseball team does in the postseason: they popped large bottles of champagne.

"He's absolutely bad", Sabathia told reporters. "But he shouldn't be around these playoff games". "He was awful at first base [in Game 3]".

The Red Sox manager noted the differences between Minute Maid Park and Fenway Park as the reason for Price to start Game 2 opposed to a later game in Houston. "That's all I have to say about that".

The Red Sox began celebrating, but the Yankees challenged the initial call. Matt Barnes and Ryan Brasier followed with a ideal inning each to protect a 4-1 lead, and Red Sox ace Chris Sale followed with a 1-2-3 eighth in a rare relief appearance.
