Red Sox Concerns Fade as They Roll Into the World Series

Red Sox Concerns Fade as They Roll Into the World Series

"It was a bad matchup, one of the greatest against the worst and all that".

The Boston Red Sox beat the defending champion Houston Astros 4-1 in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series to reach their first World Series since last winning the title in 2013.

David Price in the playoffs? "We have three center fielders in our outfield at all times".

Bradley's nine RBI are third most by a Red Sox player in the ALCS. "I said it past year, playoffs, it's kind of flip a coin sometimes".

Devers came up with the biggest swing of his young career in the sixth. "Today was no different". Kimbrel got two of those three outs on strikeouts. When we met with him and had a chance to interview him, you could just feel the leadership skills, communication skills, the good feel he has with people. "But it's one of the things where I'm past it, and I'm here because of my struggles and because of my pain that I went through there", he said. "Then next thing I saw Benny running in and saw him leave his feet". "I hope they do make it, and the Sox pound 'em". The Astros won a club-record 103 games, led the majors with a plus-263 run difference and swept Cleveland 3-0 in the Division Series.

"I think his convictions, his demeanor, his personality that rubbed off on that team is something that I noticed and something that he should be proud of". They out-hit the Astros this series.

Benintendi crashed onto the green grass and slid forward, holding the ball up inside his glove to show the six-man umpiring crew that he had caught it cleanly.

Trump threatens to send troops to border to stop migrant caravan
Trump threatened to withhold tens of millions of dollars in USA assistance from countries who didn't attempt to stop the migrants. Mexico's peso weakened more than 1.5 percent against the dollar on Thursday, partly driven by Trump's comments, analysts said.

But after beating Boston in the opener, the banged-up Astros were outscored 27-14 in losing four in a row - one short of their season high.

"He's meant everything", Mookie Betts said.

If he missed the ball in left field and it bounced past him, Houston wins Game 4 and ties the series.

After Angel Hernandez's blown calls stole the spotlight in the ALDS, West stepped into the spotlight when he ruled Jose Altuve out on fan interference. Betts also gunned down the speedy Tony Kemp at second base the previous inning, as Kemp attempted to stretch what would have been a leadoff single into a double.

If you've ever wondered what it looks like to get a birthday shoutout from the Patriots coach, here's what happened when Belichick was informed it was Red Sox manager Alex Cora's birthday.

It was 1-0 in the Boston sixth when Mitch Moreland doubled on a ball that left fielder Tony Kemp nearly caught at the wall.
