Red Sox Concerns Fade as They Roll Into the World Series


Boston ace Chris Sale will start Tuesday's World Series opener and David Price probably will follow in Game 2, Boston manager Alex Cora says.

Justin Verlander is back on the mound tonight for the Houston Astros as the team hopes to come back from 3-1 down against the Boston Red Sox.

"They beat us", Bregman, 24, said through gritted teeth. His nine strikeouts are a postseason best in his 11-year career.

Price was warming in the bullpen as Game 4 ended, perhaps jeopardizing his readiness for Thursday. And even then, the Astros weren't fully ready to admit what five games in October had settled. Houston, who trounced the Sox in last year's playoffs, is a completely loaded team from the pitching staff all the way through the lineup. "But the ball's gotta bounce your way in the postseason".

In the first inning of the game Wednesday night, Jose Altuve hit a pop-up ball that looked like a home run.

Most everything went right for the Red Sox as they sailed into the World Series.

Brown, who grew up in Red Sox Nation, said she moved to Houston in 1966 and turned her allegiance to the Astros. Also: "I'm going to need security to escort me out of here if the Astros don't come back to win this". "But it's one of the things where I'm past it, and I'm here because of my struggles and because of my pain that I went through there", he said.

After the bad call in game four that robbed Altuve and the Astros of a two-run home run, fans didn't take any chances in game five.

It's been years since fans have seen Bradley Jr.'s bat carry him to prominence. But in the ALCS, their WHIP shot up to 1.364. "It's the Red Sox's 14th pennant in franchise history". Hinch said before the game that last year's MVP was in a lot of pain and basically "playing on one leg". And they were getting outs before they were giving up runs.

"The at-bats those guys were taking", McCullers said, "were exhausting for us".

David Price was very un-postseason David Price-like as Houston never strung anything together offensively.

Now the Astros will face an offseason with several questions about their roster with a list of potential free agents including pitchers Charlie Morton and Dallas Keuchel, catchers Brian McCann and Martin Maldonado, and all-purpose player Marwin Gonzalez.
