Now comes another do-or-die afternoon for the Red Sox as Game 4 goes down on Monday afternoon at Fenway Park.
Price, the left-hander that cost Boston over $30 million, has created a great deal of controversy during the season, but on Sunday he was just what the doctor ordered for Boston.
David Price pitched four scoreless innings of relief.
As Hardball Talk cited, the weather forecast in Boston is much better on Tuesday, on what would be a travel day if the Red Sox were to win Game 4 and send the teams back to Houston for a decisive Game 5. He allowed base runners during each of the four innings but did not allowed the Astros to score and Boston added six runs during the sixth-inning to blow the game wide open.
Keys for Raiders offense vs. Ravens Week 5
Had quarterback Jameis Winston's final pass to OJ Howard been on target they would have stolen the win from the Patriots. Oakland has given up 10 sacks through games ( seven in the past two weeks) after giving up 18 all of last season.
Xander Bogaerts hadn't had a hit through the first three games of the American League Division Series.
The Red Sox more than doubled the four runs they scored over the course of the first two games on the road with the help of home runs from Rafael Devers and Jackie Bradley. The scheduled starters should not change, but Red Sox manager John Farrell did say Chris Sale would be available out of the bullpen on Monday.
"We were in the post-season previous year and unfortunately we couldn't do the job", added Ramirez, recalling that the Red Sox were swept in the first round last season.
