When the Red Sox are going like this - getting contributions from the entire batting order - they're nearly impossible to defeat, and if the trends keep going that way, Hinch and the Astros will soon see their hope of a World Series repeat disappear. Betts arm and Andrew Benintendi's glove saved game five. Porcello is going to have to be flawless with his pitch locations in order to have a chance at shutting the Astros down and I think that Houston's going to break him early on in the game, enough to give them a victory and tie the series at 2-2.
The Astros have shockingly dropped both games at Minute Maid Park in the American League Championship Series, and all of a sudden, the defending world champions find themselves just one loss away from playoff elimination. He came within one out of getting that monkey off his back in Game 2, and while he wasn't great, he did enough to help Boston to victory.
It was also a better outing than many expected from Price.
"He's been ready. Game one, last year, in the division series wasn't a good one for him, but instead of taking it as a negative, he learned from it", said Red Sox manager Alex Cora during his press conference on Friday.
Jackie Bradley Jr. homered for the second straight game Wednesday night as Boston claimed an 8-6 win in Game 5 of the ALCS at the Astros. Springer led off with a home run, and Altuve scored on Reddick's 2-out RBI single. Eovaldi, who was with the Rays in June and came to the Red Sox at the July trading deadline, allowed two runs on six hits in six innings in Game 3. However, after recording two quick outs in the sixth, he surrendered a double to Christian Vazquez before Bradley pounced on James' off-speed offering. The Red Sox will have three tries to clinch, starting tonight at 7 p.m.in Houston.

There's a New Bullard Rule That Finds No Need to Raise Rates
The display of unanimity could bolster expectations the central bank will raise rates a fourth time this year in December. The Fed minutes did not include any discussion of Trump's attacks .
Despite what looked to be clear evidence that Betts reached into the stands on his attempt, a replay review upheld the initial call on the field, and Porcello escaped the inning unscathed.
"I think the competitive edges nowadays are so narrow", Hinch said. He understands now, he's staying through the ball, hitting the ball in the air. After several allegations, the Major League Baseball announced they were investigating the Houston Astros for potentially cheating.
After batting.234 in the regular season, JBJ's clutch hits have propelled the Sox to within one game of a trip to the World Series. Carlos Correa ended the contest 3-for-4 with a double, a walk and two RBIs. But I know I'm more than capable of winning games as a starter in October.
MLB's original statement mentions that the Astros' employee was monitoring other teams to see if Houston's opponents were cheating. Fans weren't happy, players weren't happy, it was just an all-around, game-altering judgment call that had the Astros chasing those two runs the entire game.
