"I don't think he'll be spooked by not having experience".
After he finished talking to Springer following his third shot, Altuve's teammates goaded him into exiting the dugout for a curtain call. Porcello has a career 5.66 ERA in the playoffs, including his five-run effort in a loss to the Cleveland Indians in Game 1 of the ALDS previous year.
Entering his second career postseason, presumptive AL MVP Jose Altuve made a massive statement.
"First off, how good is Jose Altuve?". That has been the idea for Devenski all year long, though it's worth noting that now he might have some help from Lance McCullers Jr., if manager A.J. Hinch opts to use McCullers out of the 'pen. "We have a pretty doggone good pitcher in Drew Pomeranz going after it. Turn the page". "It's hard to describe in different ways". Fransisco Lindor continues to get better and better every year, as he leads the entire league in home runs by a shortstop, with 33 bombs.
Quite a comeback from his only previous postseason - in 2015, he batted just.154 (4 for 26) without an extra-base hit. The first was the second leg of a back-to-back with Alex Bregman that started the game off with a bang for the AL West champs. And he greeted rookie reliever Austin Maddox, a surprise addition to the Red Sox's playoff roster, in the seventh inning by launching a changeup into the Crawford Boxes in left field.
The crowd of 43,402, which included Hall of Famers Nolan Ryan, Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio, waved bright orange towels as Altuve trotted around the bases. Despite a great outing by Sale, the Astros, motivated by the chance of winning a game five in Houston, are the team that capitalizes on what chances they get off Sale, and win this game by the final score of 4-2. The Boston attack consisted of eight hits and a pair of bases on balls with Sandy Leon and Rafael Devers driving in runs while Mookie Betts and Mitch Moreland scored.
"At this point, no", Farrell said plainly before the team worked out at Fenway Park. He is also the type of pitcher who might let the natural adrenaline of a postseason game impact his performance a little bit.
Controversial events in the history of TransCanada's Energy East pipeline
Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre , who has opposed the pipeline on environmental grounds, said he was thrilled to see it abandoned. In early September, TransCanada asked for a 30-day suspension of its application for the Energy East project.
"We as fans need to watch out for ourselves, too". No excuses. Bad time to suck. "This is a new season for me". "It happens (but a) awful time for it to happen".
"I'm going to say three (games to) zero, the Astros win the series", she said.
Red Sox will be without table-setter Eduardo Nunez who fell to the ground trying to make a run-out and sustained a right knee injury in game 1.
Nunez, 30, initially suffered his knee injury on September 9, forcing him to miss more than two weeks of action. Nunez was placed in the lineup for Hanley Ramirez due to his more successful history against Astros starter, Justin Verlander.
The Red Sox' 2017 postseason got off to a rough start.
