Alex Cora after 4.2 innings.

Price was just one out away from his first ever playoff victory as he worked 4.2 innings, allowing five hits and four earned runs on 80 pitches.

The Astros put up deuces in the second and third, the latter highlighted by a two-run Marwin Gonzalez homer. Price was given one more shot to complete the fifth but was pulled after walking Tyler White on four pitches.

"I don't take it personal", he said.

An RBI double that inning by right fielder Mookie Betts brought home the final Boston run and gave Kimbrel an extra cushion.

Gerrit Cole struggled at the beginning of his second playoff start with the Houston Astros. There is no telling how this start will go for him, but there are worse options.

But rather than hearing boos rain down from the Fenway Faithful, Price was given a standing ovation as he walked off the mound.


"It was definitely appreciated", Price said.

"It wasnt the line I dreamed Id have tonight", Price said.

It'd be surprising to see Sale used in Game 3 either way, but he'd still be in line to start Thursday's Game 5 on regular rest.

He then moved to third and then home on a pair of passed balls by catcher Martin Maldonado.

As for Price, he allowed four runs and five hits in his 4 2/3 innings of work and also walked four batters.

David Price went home a victor in a postseason start for the first time in his career.

The Dodgers' offensive woes aren't just about Grandal. "Thats my first team win as a starter". He fell to the warning track, but after the training staff and manger AJ Hinch went out to check on him he stayed in the game. "It's all strengths. When you look across the board, all 25 guys on the roster are good baseball players all around".


It was the 14th consecutive post-season game that the World Series champs hit at least one out of the park, an all-time Major League Baseball playoff record.

The stakes: Teams up 2-0 in a best-of-seven series have gone 69-13 as far as winning their series - that's 84.1 percent of the time.

The wall exacted a little revenge on Gonzalez in the next inning, however.

The Red Sox said Game 1 starter Chris Sale was hospitalized with a stomach illness but Cora said he was still hoping the he would join the team in Houston.

By the time, per tradition, they sang "Sweet Caroline" in the middle of the eighth inning Sunday night at Fenway Park, the giddy, bundled-up crowd may not have actually believed its good fortune.

The win ensured that that these teams will play at least a Game 5, in Houston.

Sale picked up the win in Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the New York Yankees when he pitched into the sixth inning. Cora said the illness was not to blame for the abbreviated outing, and that Sale started feeling sick after he finished pitching. On Turner's TV Everywhere platforms, viewership was up 53% in total streaming minutes per game during the 2018 MLB Postseason.


But with a team as good as the one he oversees - a team that's deep, accomplished and bursting with confidence - it's hard for Hinch to understate the strengths of the defending World Series champions.
