Justin Verlander pitches out of relief in Game 4

Justin Verlander pitches out of relief in Game 4

Jonah Keri has advocated for managers going for a full bullpen game, something that seems plausible with all the starting pitchers knocked out early this October. There are questionable bullpen moves.

After Joe Kelly came on and pitched 1.2 innings, David Price carried the Red Sox through the middle of the game. He gave up two earned runs on four hits with four strikeouts and no walks over 5 2/3 innings in a 3-2 win at the Red Sox his last regular season start.

CARLOS BELTRAN: There have been many fans upset by the presence of Beltran on the playoff roster. Furthermore, they led the league in doubles with 346 and runs scored with 896.

The Astros returned to their sharp ways from Games 1 and 2, forcing Rick Porcello to throw 70 pitches just to make it through three innings. Dustin Pedroia, who hit.125 this series, also said Farrell has "done a great job". Not only was this a massive home run for Boston's chances though.

That extra run made all the difference for the Astros.

Kimbrel's Game 4 performance was a microcosm for what doomed the Red Sox in the ALDS.

Fister's first-inning ERA in his starts this season ballooned to 10.13. Last year's Cy Young victor looked as if he would have failed to make the Astros rotation of 2013. Houston took the lead just three batters later when Josh Reddick singled to left. On Monday, it was Max Scherzer, who was dominant, yet once again, the Cubs came through late.

The Sox had the one-run lead until the eighth inning when Sale gave up a solo shot to Bregman that went over the Green Monster before giving up an RBI single that allowed the Astros to take the lead. He tied the game with his dinger, and gave the Astros life that then produced a few more runs after it. Manager John Farrell will most likely not be back. Just the same, Porcello was settling down and Sale should have been saved for a possible Game 5. If the Cleveland Indians advance to the ALCS Game 1 will be in Cleveland. But instead Hinch panicked on Monday afternoon and used Verlander as a relief pitcher. Starter Charlie Morton had gotten one out, but there was a runner on base. Verlander wound up with the win in his first pro relief appearance after making 424 starts in the majors and minors. The ball ricocheted off the wall and toward the right-field corner, and Devers sprinted around the bases for an inside-the-park home run to cut the deficit to one run, at 5-4. "I know that we have got opportunity to access where we are as a team". Game 4 is scheduled for 1 p.m. Monday in Boston, unless the Cleveland Indians completed a sweep of the New York Yankees later Sunday night. The victor of that Game 5 on Wednesday night will then face Houston. In 2013 the Red Sox and Farrell won the World Series.

The Houston Astros welcomed Justin Verlander with open arms following the trade between the Tigers and Astros back on August 31st.
