Red Sox Beat Astros, Clinch AL East Title

Red Sox Beat Astros, Clinch AL East Title

1978 - The Cleveland Indians beat the New York Yankees 9-2 on the last day of the season to force a one-game playoff between the Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.

Houston, who dropped to 110-61, will finish with the second-best record in Major League Baseball behind the Cleveland Indians.

Boston clinched the AL East with the victory and will face the Astros on Thursday in Game 1 of the AL Division Series at Minute Maid Park. It marks the first time since division play began in 1969 that the Red Sox have won back-to-back AL East crowns. So sounds are the pitching staff and offensive squad right now, either is able to step in the moment the other gets into trouble.

The Red Sox actually have to win their division first, and that's still not a done deal.

Rangers 5, Athletics 3: Shin-Soo Choo tied a career high with his 22nd home run, helping Texas end a seven-game skid and making a winner out of left-hander Martin Perez, who threw six innings to earn his career-best 13th victory.

Angels center fielder Mike Trout is only 26 years old and already has 200 home runs after going yard against the Mariners.

The good news for Boston is that though they send Doug Fister (5-8, 4.87 ERA) to the mound tonight, Houston's pitcher isn't exactly ace material.

McCullers battled injury over the last two months and is trying to prove he deserves a spot in the Houston rotation during the playoffs.

The latter came just in the nick of time, as starting pitcher Charlie Morton had begun to sputter, giving up one run in the fifth inning and another in the sixth.

Schwarber hit his 30th home run and had a two-run single in the regular season's penultimate game for the National League Central champions, who have won 15 of their last 18 games.

Phillies starter Ben Lively (4-7, 4.26 ERA) closed his rookie season in the big leagues with a win, throwing six innings of two-run baseball without walking a batter. Price got Brian McCann on the 3-4-1 putout thanks to a fortuitous bounce, struck out Cameron Maybin and walked pinch-hitter Tyler White to load the bases. Odds certainly favor New York against the Toronto Blue Jays today and even if the Bronx Bombers do lose, Boston still has a lot to get together ahead of the postseason. Boston also set up an immediate rematch with the Astros in the playoffs.

One example of a small market team's fragility comes in the Oakland Athletics 2014 season. Just have to win one game. By the third inning, the 'Stros offense came to life, led by some deadly clutch hitting by Alex Bregman, who drove in all three of the Astros runs.

This is almost impossible to believe, but it's the first time Boston has finished first place in back-to-back since 1916. Second baseman Brock Holt jumped to glove the ball and flipped it to first, where David Price was covering.

In his last 10 starts Keuchel has pitched at least 6 innings 8 times, and has pitched into the seventh inning 3 times.

And on the seventh day, they rested.

"I was looking for him to bounce one, and he bounced one".

Five Royals relievers limited the Diamondbacks to two hits and no runs in the final four innings after Kennedy departed.
