Bregman trolls Eovaldi, Hinch says "back it up" in ALCS

Eduardo Nunez makes an error in the sixth inning of the Red Sox's 7-2 loss to the Astros in Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday night

"I saw him smiling today, which is always good", Red Sox Manager Alex Cora said of Betts. The best-of-seven series, now tied 1-1, continues Tuesday at Houston's Minute Maid Park. Mookie Betts has five hits in eight at-bats with a walk in his limited opportunities vs. Cole, which sounds like the same problem most of baseball has with Betts, but Cole has been one of baseball's most effective pitchers with runners on base, allowing a.625 OPS, which ranked as the sixth best in the AL (trailing teammate Justin Verlander, among others).

Price left leading 5-4 with two on with two out in the fifth before Matt Barnes struck out Gonzalez to end the inning and then pitched a ideal sixth to earn the victory. Martin Maldonado ripped a laser down the third base line that barely stayed fair and George Springer drove in both runs on a soft blooper over the head of first baseman Steve Pearce.

And when left fielder Andrew Benintendi captured the game's final out at the wall, they warbled the words to the Red Sox's anthem "Dirty Water". Gonzalez made it 4-2 when he hit Price's full-count fastball off an advertisement above the Monster seats with two outs in the third.

Houston fans will be able to enjoy pre-game festivities at the post-season street fest from 1 to 4 p.m.

Bradley's three-run double off the Green Monster rescued the Red Sox from facing such long odds this week. He's played a couple of balls off this wall nearly like a home player. He added an RBI double in the eighth off Hector Rondon.

Whichever prism you viewed David Price through before Game 2, you probably still do.

It was the first-ever postseason matchup of No. 1 overall draft picks, with Price going first to Tampa Bay in the 2007 draft and Cole the top pick by Pittsburgh in 2011. His middling, 4⅔ -inning stint, which started poorly and ended tenuously, didn't gain him the first win in a postseason start in his career, but it put the Red Sox in position to win, which is more than he can usually say.

The game, which the Astros trampled the Red Sox 7-2, averaged 5,821,000 viewers.

He seemed to be headed in the same direction falling behind 4-2 after three innings, but retired the Astros in order in the fourth on 10 pitches. A week later, Cora has no hard feelings about Judge's gesture, or the more recent one from Bregman. "We do our talking on the field". Just venting? Who knows? Bradley never left the box, and claimed that the ball hit him, which would make it a foul ball. He flied out to right field on the next pitch.

It's unlikely Cora would turn to Devers again in Game 3 because the Astros are starting left-hander Dallas Keuchel.

One key stat to know: According to ESPN Stats & Information research, the Astros have homered in 13 straight postseason games, which is tied for the record for consecutive postseason games with a home run. The Red Sox, who have spent a lot of bullpen energy in the first two games, will have some decisions to make on who will start and how they will manage the pen going forward. Keuchel pitched solidly against the Indians in Game 3 of the ALDS (two runs in five innings), and during the regular season he put up an ERA+ of 108 and a ground-ball percentage of 53.7 in 204 2/3 innings.
