Bullpen delivers, Betts seals it for Sox in Game 2

  • David Price

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.

That, he insisted, is all he ever cared about. "This isn't about me".

Even in victory, the Red Sox were weakened, though the degree to which is still unknown.

The Astros will attempt to go for a second win against the Red Sox today in Game 2 on TBS.

Price fell one out short of qualifying for the win, which would have been his first in 11 postseason starts.

Sale dealt with shoulder inflammation during the regular season, but still finished with a 12-4 record and a 2.11 ERA in 27 starts.

Gerrit Cole (15-5, 2.88 ERA) vs. I'll start. I'll come out of the 'pen.

The Sox went on to win that series and ultimately the World Series. "And that's what I'm about". I'd love to see Price throw a gem and make this a competitive series heading to Houston, but I think the combination of Cole plus all those righty bats in the Houston lineup that worked 10 walks in Game 1 will be too much for Price and the Red Sox.

Boston earned the split in a four-game set with the Astros in its last visit to Minute Maid Park in June. "We feel really good about us".

Price was spotted a two-run lead in the first inning and then fell behind 4-2 before Bradley clanged one off the left-field wall that Gonzalez chased helplessly as it bounced back toward the infield. Matt Barnes, Ryan Brasier and Rick Porcello did not not allow a hit or run in relief of Price. That was followed by a tough 5-7 Game 2 loss in Boston.

"I've heard nothing but good things about him now", Eovaldi said. Boston is hitting.268 as a team this season, Mookie Betts' mark of.346 paces the team.

"I expect myself to be great in big moments and I haven't done that in big moments", Price said after the Sox squared the series at a win apiece before it shifts to Texas for the next three. He's played a couple of balls off this wall nearly like a home player. "It's a well-placed hit".

"I fielded the ball, I checked second", Cole said.

"The ball, the wall, he's backpedaling".

Betts scored an insurance run in the seventh, walking to lead off the inning and coming around to make it 6-4 on a wild pitch and a pair of passed balls. Betts added an RBI double in the eighth off Hector Rondon.

Price's teams had lost all 10 of his previous postseason starts, the longest such losing streak in baseball history. (19) hits a three RBI double during third inning against the Houston Astros in game two of the 2018 ALCS playoff baseball series at Fenway Park. The series resumes Tuesday night with Dallas Keuchel on the mound for the Astros.

"That was definitely appreciated", Price said. "But our offense, our defense, everybody rallied together".

On Monday, the Red Sox announced that Sale has been released from the hospital and cleared to rejoin the team Tuesday. His middling, 4⅔ -inning stint, which started poorly and ended tenuously, didn't gain him the first win in a postseason start in his career, but it put the Red Sox in position to win, which is more than he can usually say.
