Boston Red Sox: David Price dominates in wasted bullpen effort

Boston Red Sox: David Price dominates in wasted bullpen effort

The Red Sox fell to the Houston Astros 8-2, while the Yankees were shutout by the Cleveland Indians, 4-0.

Here in Manchester, Comcast subscribers can watch Fox Sports 1 on Channel 250. Beyond that, the Red Sox had trouble coming up with much in this first game of the series but have a chance to bounce back Friday.

Let's hope the squad ends the series Sunday and gets the much deserved rest before going head to head against the victor of New York Yankees vs. Cleveland Indians, to which the Indians have taken an overpowering 2-0 lead with their 9-8 win in 13 innings last night.

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.

Houston Astros starting pitcher Justin Verlander (35) delivers a pitch against the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of baseball's American League Division Series, Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017, in Houston. Brad Peacock starts for the Astros.

So is Red Sox manager John Farrell surprised that the series has been this lopsided so far?

Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts had an error that looked like it was pulled from a blooper reel earlier in the sixth when he caught a fly ball by Bregman then simply lost the ball as he tried to throw it back in.

Though Fister might not be the marquee name that Boston would ordinarily peg to be on the mound in his position, he isn't a stranger to it. Fister, 33, pitched for Houston past year (12-13, 4.64 ERA) but wasn't re-signed.

Judge struck out four times swinging in Game 1, leaving three players on base.

"We have been backed into a corner before, it's nothing that we haven't been able to overcome, and it comes down to execution now", Fister said Saturday. However, the way he settled down after that is why the Astros are very confident in him this postseason. All that Correa did on Friday was to go two-for-four, hitting a home run and a double, scoring twice and knocking in four of the Houston's eight runs.

"The strength of this team will continue to be not only those big names. but the depth of his lineup", Hinch said.

And so, there is considerable curiosity within the industry about whether another division series sweep will bring sweeping change in Boston, beginning with the manager. He said he told a friend during conversation Friday night that the stakes of Sunday's game in some ways helps him to focus.

If there is any team that can come back from a deficit like the Red Sox are in, it is Boston.

Gattis out for Game 3, Beltran is in. They have David Price, whom they're paying $30 this season, pitching out of the bullpen after injuries. This year through two games, they've been outscored 16-4. "We've got to find a way", Ramirez said. That's why we're pros. "From 7 a.m., when you're eating breakfast, get your energy and come support us and we're going to be ready to go". Next up was president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski, who announced Farrell would return, a bit of information that he casually relayed as the two passed each other en route to and from their respective press availabilities.
