Red Sox team, then you can't believe in anything. While he had three hits and two RBIs in Game 4 - his only multi-hit game this postseason - he hit a relatively quiet.316 with three RBIs against the 108-win Red Sox. Such an effort clearly failed previous year when Houston faced the New York Yankees.

There, they met the defending world champions.

As fate would have it, it was Verlander who got the start Thursday in the contest that sealed Houston's fate as the second-best team in the American League this season.

The Red Sox have retained this approach all season; they have maintained focus and toughness and maximized their talent base.

In the first inning of the game Wednesday night, Jose Altuve hit a pop-up ball that looked like a home run. And they won it 8-2.

The score stayed that way until the top of the sixth, when Verlander allowed a double to Mitch Moreland to start the inning.


While Verlander was on the mound in Game 5, Houston scored no runs.

After the Red Sox surrounded Cora in the clubhouse and sang "Happy Birthday!" to their rookie skipper, they began turning their attention to next week.

Price's postseason woes are well-known. It was a well-earned tag. The left-hander, who has had a rough time in Boston since signing a $217 million contract before the 2016 season, entered 0-9 with a 6.16 ERA in 11 career post-season starts. Craig Kimbrel came on to exorcise his own recent playoff demons, mowing down the Astros with two strikeouts to close out the win. Game times will be announced soon. The Astros couldn't compete.

Yes, we all know David Price is not a good starter in the postseason. "I imagine this winter when we get to the winter meetings and the manager meetings, I should probably raise my hand". "It was a great pitch for him, he knew it, and we couldn't adjust to it". Therefore, it is the Yankees' most bitter foe going to the World Series. He walked three to load the bases and bring up Alex Bregman, who lined the first pitch he saw into left. That bullpen locked down another Red Sox victory, though not without some help from the rotation and not without a bit of drama.

Below is the full schedule for this year's World Series. Bradley's.200 average was the lowest batting average for the MVP of any league championship series.

Mitch Moreland contributed, despite a bum hamstring.


It wasn't Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts or J.D.

Then there was the defense. The problem is Boston outfielder Mookie Betts also was trying to catch it.

"That was very, very special, absolutely", Price said after the game. It should go down in Red Sox lore. The meat of the order and the bottom of the lineup. "That one, I was a little upset", Altuve said.

But the play that Andrew Benintendi made for the final out of the game managed to eclipse Betts' highlight-reel throw. He never seemed healthy, banged the knee in the playoffs and was limited to a designated hitter in the last three games. Had it been ruled a home run, the game would have been tied at 2-2.

The team that hits better in the postseason wins. Boston is now headed to the World Series. "To do it again is - it feels even harder".
