Fans grab Astros gear after Houston advances to ALCS

11 Octubre 2017, 03:53 | Cornelio Vivanco

After the Astros chased Sale, Craig Kimbrel came in to get the final out of the eighth, giving up a single to Josh Reddick to put the Astros ahead, then returning for the ninth, giving up a double to Carlos Beltran that put the Astros up 5-3.

The Astros got on the board first as they have done in every game of this series as Jose Altuve grounded into a double play allowing George Springer to score from third to give the Astros a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning.

Boston continued the trend of falling behind early as Rick Porcello allowed a run in each of the first two innings.

The Boston Red Sox staved off elimination with Sunday's victory that narrowed their deficit in the ALDS to 2-1.

Pivot point: Bregman's lead-off homer off Sale in the eighth revived the Astros, shifting the momentum in the game, and also gave them a chance to take a deep breath. In 2013 the Red Sox and Farrell won the World Series.

When the cocky Red Sox fans were chanting Justin Verlander's name after he came on in relief for the first time in his career, and had trouble with the slippery footing, throwing a cement-mixer slider that Andrew Benintendi crushed to right for a two-run home run for a 3-2 lead in the fifth, the Red Sox were feeling pretty good about themselves. Even some theatrics at the end could not prevent Houston from taking the game 5-4 and the series 3-1.

Albert Almora followed with a run-scoring single off of reliever Sammy Solis that tied the game at 1-1.

The Houston Astros are heading to the American League Championship Series.

The Red Sox started last year's Cy Young victor Rick Porcello in Game 4 against the Astros on Monday, and he allowed two runs over three innings.

The Astros will play the victor of the Yankees-Indians series in the American League Championship Series beginning on October 13. The Indians held a 2-1 edge over the Yankees going into Game 4 of the AL Division Series on Monday night.

On the flip side, Sale was called on in relief and was fantastic for all but two batters.

Kelly pitched the third, and then Price scattered four hits and a walk while throwing 57 pitches in his longest outing since July.

The homer was the Devers' first in the playoffs, making him the youngest Red Sox player ever (20 years, 349 days) to homer in a playoff game and just the sixth player in major league history to homer in the postseason before turning 21. "Like I said, it's going to take time to heal and we don't have that kind of time right now". The AL ERA champ allowed six runs on seven hits over just two innings last Friday, an effort he'll have to correct on Wednesday with the Indians' season hanging in the balance. "Unfortunately, we didn't get the win". First pitch will be at 1:08 p.m. - it would have been moved to 7:08 p.m. if Cleveland had finished its ALDS sweep of the Yankees later Sunday. Verlander, the Astros' Game 1 starter, began warming up just before the fifth began.
