5 keys to an Astros win in ALCS Game 5

Red Sox Manager Alex Cora left with Christian Vazquez right and Sandy Leon in Houston said he'll talk to Chris Sale before deciding on Sale's status

Ultimately, the Red Sox emerged victorious with a hard-fought 8-6 victory.

An unidentified man, who had been issued a credential before the October 8 game in Cleveland, was removed from an area near Boston's dugout for taking photos during Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday, according to a report by Metro Boston and Yahoo Sports.

Game 3 began as a slugfest/slogfest, with the first inning taking 32 minutes to complete as the Red Sox scored two runs, string together three hits and a Xander Bogaerts groundout, and the Astros one, courtesy of three singles.

With seven walks throughout the first three games as Boston pitches him carefully why not take the advantage of having the leadoff man aboard? "The person was removed much earlier in the game". Considering the Astros' offense should have its way with Price and company, even a subpar effort from Verlander should be enough to secure this game for Houston and force a Game 6 in Boston. The Red Sox have laid waste to that pitching, scoring 23 runs - 16 via two-out RBIs - over Games 2-4.

"It's a 3-2 ballgame until all hell broke loose in the eighth inning", Hinch said. It's happening right now during a really important series and I just think it's bigger than us. Getting through them, getting through the at-bats, you watch them hang in there.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch has Altuve as the DH for Game 3 of the American League Championship Series against Boston. Cora said. "I learned that when I was playing winter ball in 1997 with Robby Alomar, Sandy Alomar, my brother". Cora told reporters he is always concerned about potential sign-stealing throughout the season, adding Boston does a "good job" changing sequences and paying attention to details.

"(Wednesday's) game will dictate what we do tomorrow", Cora said. We try to slow it down.

Rafael Devers and Xander Bogaerts had two RBIs apiece for the Red Sox, who have outscored their opponents 36-12 on the road this postseason. "That was the same ankle". It was the sixth time in seven post-season appearances that he gave up a run. Nunez had made a few solid plays before leaving. The Astros have a lot of faith in Verlander, and after Charlie Morton only went 2.1 innings in Game 4, Houston doesn't want to rely on a exhausted bullpen.

The team said it planned to wait until Sale rejoins the club in Houston on Tuesday before deciding when he'll be able to get back on the mound. Sale will throw a bullpen session today.

"We talked to him", Porcello said.

"It's probably the most excited I've ever been after making a catch", said Benintendi. "That's kind of one of those times when I like to rely on my instincts when I'm out there and just feel my way through a game". Both benches emptied after Machado clipped the back leg of Milwaukee first baseman Jesus Aguilar while running out a groundout in Game 4.

Moreland is 4 for 9 with two doubles and a home run in his career against announced Houston Game 4 starter Charlie Morton.

Steve Pearce started at first base again last night. Tony Kemp was 2-for-3 with a solo home run plus two walks.
