Boston looks to finish off Houston in Game 5

The Red Sox immediately got it back when Xander Bogaerts doubled in a run in the top of the third, running the score to 3-1.

Security at Fenway Park had been warned about the man, because of his similarly suspicious behavior during the Astros' ALDS win over the Cleveland Indians.

However, a league source said Tuesday night that the investigation concluded the Astros employee was not trying to steal signs, but was acting on suspicions the Red Sox had been stealing Astros signs, and was there to try to catch them in the act. He rejoined the team Tuesday in Houston before Game 3. "The person was removed much earlier in the game".

So apparently the Astros aren't the New England Patriots of major league baseball.

The Indians had been upset when an unidentified man, who had been issued a credential before the October 8 game in Cleveland, appeared to be trying to view scouting reports in the team's dugout on Houston's players, one person told AP. "He'll be ready to go", Hinch said. The Astros allowed the fewest runs (534) of any AL staff in a non-strike season since the designated hitter was instituted in 1973. "So yes, it's partially closed, but I don't think it's all the way closed".

Cora was asked about the situation after Boston's 8-2 win in Game 3. "I'm not concerned about it though".

"We don't get caught up on the whole paranoia thing of the signs", Cora said. We try to slow it down.

"It's just something that feels right to me while I'm picking up my signs", he told The Boston Globe.

Eduardo Nunez is hurt again. Rafael Devers went 1-for-5 with two RBIs.

"I twisted it on that foul ball down the third base line (by Yuli Gurriel in the first inning)", he said. But he stayed healthy last night, as did Kyrie Irving, who missed last year's playoffs with injury, and the Celtics cruised to a 105-87 win over the Philadelphia 76ers as Jayson Tatum poured in 23 points to lead all Boston scorers. "That was the same ankle". Joe Kelly, Ryan Brasier and Matt Barnes have all worked multiple innings ahead of Craig Kimbrel in the playoffs and could do the same here.

The Astros witnessed those delicate inches work against them on Wednesday at Minute Maid Park in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series. If he continues his struggles against Verlander, the red-hot Boston lineup could start to cool down, giving the Astros a chance to extend the series.

Chris Sale's status for Game 5 is up in the air. "If he has to throw a bullpen he'll probably do it during the game". "We still think he can do it but obviously we have to wait".

"We talked to him", Porcello said.

ALCS Game 4: Astros vs. A game far closer than the final score suggested thanks to the gasoline ignited by Osuna, swung Boston's way from that moment on.

"But then when I heard the Astros made a comment". "When we scored, it turned into "the rally rake.' ". There are other guys who can make a game six start like Dallas Keuchel, Charlie Morton, maybe Josh James, or even an opener might be used. For Price, his long-awaited first postseason win as a starter. The first instance where distance mattered came in the bottom of the first inning; two more unfolded in the eighth and the ninth before the Boston Red Sox sealed their 8-6 victory and secured a commanding 3-1 series lead.

Acquired in late June to add some hitting depth, Pearce instead has become a key part of the Red Sox offence.
