Now the big question for Boston: Is everything all right with ace Chris Sale?
The Houston Astros entered the AL Championship Series aching.
Two crucial at-bats stand out for Bradley Jr. and capture his timely hitting in this series. The Dodgers hold a 3-2 lead going into Game 6 of the NLCS on Friday night at Miller Park.
"Loving both teams, I can definitely say it was a home run and he did nothing wrong", said Brown. The diving, game-saving catch that same night by Red Sox left fielder Andrew Benintendi, when a miss might have given the Astros the win.
With the Astros' season finished, those amusing fans can relive their hijinks online while the Sox faithful cheer on their team in the Series.
Kimbrel's wings - Closer Craig Kimbrel cuts a distinctive pose on the mound before he fires a pitch, spreading his arms to the side and raising his elbows, giving him the look of a bearded condor poised to take flight. It added to his growing legacy as one of baseball's best hitters in the playoffs as the new "Mr. October". Instead he ends up accounting for the first run of the game. That was very, very special, absolutely.
In assessing some of those failures, the Astros justifiably gave credit to the Red Sox's lineup.
Even if the ratings are through the roof, Major League Baseball will come out of October with a serious problem on its hands. Second baseman Jose Altuve, the 2017 AL MVP, played with an unidentified right knee injury that is likely to require offseason surgery.
It's got to be Troy Caldwell, thanks to a controversial moment from Wednesday night's game against the Red Sox.
He's taking the Boston Red Sox back to the World Series.
Donald Trump threatens to shut US-Mexico border unless migrant caravan stopped
Irineo Mujica's organization, Pueblo sin Fronteras or People without Borders, said he was detained during a peaceful march. The "steadily growing caravan" is estimated at several thousand people and hope to reach Mexico within days.
Three innings later and Boston went deep on Verlander again. "This is what we set out to do when we come to spring training". It's hard to find a bigger victor than that.
Price was warming in the bullpen as Game 4 ended, perhaps jeopardizing his readiness for Thursday.
Cole immediately put Houston behind with two runs allowed in the first inning. Mitch Moreland led the inning off with a double.
There's just no excuse for this poor performance. Price's goal was to win multiple championships while cementing his legacy as one of the finest pitchers of his era. Instead, he injected life into Boston and the Astros never regained that momentum. "He hasn't changed, and that's really tough to do at 20, 21 years old".
Let's be honest, this is a lot more fun than throwing a fastball at a guy because of the "unwritten rules".
Verlander, who starred for Houston last postseason after being acquired on August 31, yielded seven hits and four runs in six innings for his second playoff loss with the Astros.
"This game is all about failure", Bregman said.
Now, all eyes are on Game 5, a must-win for the Astros.
When Boston wasn't robbing him of extra-base hits, it often pitched around him and accepted a walk as an acceptable outcome.
It was the 14th pennant for the Red Sox, who are 8-4 in World Series appearances. Bregman's misfortune captures one big reason why Houston's season is over.
