The Houston Astros, coming off a magnificent Game 1 victory lead by Jose Altuve, they were expected to drop Game 2 at home to the Red Sox and they would be traveling to Boston with the series tied, knotted at one game apiece.
Sale pitched Game 1 of the series and was rocked for seven runs on nine hits in five innings of work.
Jose Altuve led off the inning with a single before Carlos Correa hit a two-run home run to give the Astros a 2-0 lead.
Correa finished 2-for-4 with four RBIs and two runs scored as the Astros secured a 2-0 series lead with Game 3 set for Fenway Park in Boston on Sunday. Afterward, Sale offered no excuses for his outing. In 2017, Fister started 15 games for the Red Sox, going 5-9.
Starting pitchers for Game 3 include right handed pitcher Brad Peacock (13-2, 3.00 ERA, 161K) on the mound for the Astros while Doug Fister (RHP, 5-9, 488 ERA, 83K) has the start for the Red Sox.
Nunez missed all but one of the Red Sox' final 20 regular season games and had to be carried off the field following his first at-bat against the Astros. The Astros received a flawless top half of the seventh from Devenski including two strikeouts before Altuve gave the Astros another insurance run with his third solo home run of the game to make it 8-2 in the bottom half of the inning.
Game two between the Houston Astros and the Boston Red Sox was pretty much a repeat of Game One. They're facing elimination as they've already fallen behind two games to none to the Houston Astros.
Farrell said he will worry about a potential Game 4 starter after ensuring that there is another game to play. Rick Porcello fumbled away Game 1, David Price lost again in Game 2, and Clay Buchholz didn't go deep in Game 3. Boston is known for having some of the most passionate and supportive fans in all of baseball, which could help the Red Sox win both games at Fenway. They have combined for 12 hits (six home runs, two doubles), 11 runs and 11 RBI. "That's the good thing about our lineup, there's no holes in our lineup, and we feel very confident no matter if we went 0 for 4 the day before or if we went 4 for 4". Live television coverage of this game is on the #Fox Sports 1 channel around the United States. They are young and don't have David Ortiz so it's going to be tough to win this best-of-five series.
I said it heading into game two, that I thought Boston was done after Houston took Sale to the woodshed, and I'm not changing my tune here.
"We haven't done anything right", he said. It's nice to have playoff games during the day, but making the Astros play all five games during the day really makes it hard for Astros fans to watch the games, especially with all three of the games in Houston scheduled during the middle of the work day. "I think you'll find anyone who comes out of the game earlier than they'd like to to be upset". "So I just went to plan B and that was go extreme, extreme in with the cutter and slider and was able to get some early strikes, get ahead in the count, attack them and kind of put them back on their heels, and was fortunate enough to make an adjustment early enough before it was too late".
Springer clubbed an opposite-field home run off Pomeranz leading off the third inning, the Astros' sixth homer of the series. Jon Lester (13-8) starts for the defending World Series champions against Gio Gonzalez (15-9) and Washington after two-time Cy Young Award victor Max Scherzer was pushed back to Game 3 because of a tender hamstring. The Red Sox had hoped to torment Houston's pitchers with walks, singles and doubles, then dash aggressively around the bases.
