Astros, Red Sox announce starters for first 2 ALCS games

The lefty's spot in the Red Sox rotation was in question after he was lit up by the New York Yankees in Game 2 of the ALDS.

"We're ready for another shot", Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello said. Kinsler made it 2-0 with a double over Gardner's head in left, and Nunez made it 3-0 with a single to left.

As they popped champagne bottles in the locker room, the background music was Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York", the song that plays in Yankee Stadium after every game.

The Astros will counter with ace Justin Verlander in Game 1 and Gerritt Cole in Sunday's Game 2 in Boston, manager A.J. Hinch said. The 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor entered with a 0-3 in 12 previous postseason appearances, which included four starts. Aaron Hicks missed a two-run homer by about 4 feet on a foul drive down the right-field line. Had it hit him, while he was making his way out of the bullpen onto the field, it would've hurt.

Boston recorded its fourth straight postseason win in NY. "Pitching is one of those".

After taking the ALDS three games to one, the AL East champion Red Sox will advance to the ALCS against defending World Series champion Houston. Benintendi argued after he was called out on a breaking ball with the bases loaded for the final out of the eighth, a pitch that may have been outside. "He's absolutely bad. He was awful behind the plate today". "He was bad at first base [in Game 3]".

"Major League Baseball needs to do something about Angel", Martinez said.
