The Astros are completely dominating the Red Sox in the ALDS

The Astros are completely dominating the Red Sox in the ALDS

And speaking of third homers, Altuve would hit his third homer of the game in the seventh inning off reliever Austin Maddox, becoming the ninth player in postseason history to hit three homers in a game. His 15 pitch was a 97-mph four-seamer that second baseman and potential AL MVP José Altuve lofted to the same general area. RHPs Lance McCullers, Charlie Morton and Brad Peacock are the candidates. The durability of Pomeranz's arm will always be a lingering concern, and as the lefty hit a career high in innings pitched, his four-seam fastball lost some of its mustard.

Correa drove home Springer and Altuve by lining the first pitch from Reed to left field and scored on the ensuing pitch when Evan Gattis followed with an RBI single. He is 5 foot 6 and 165 pounds - hardly the typical slugger's profile - and sounded amazed by the accomplishment. He has a different feeling entering the playoffs this year after a trade just before the deadline for players to be eligible for the postseason brought him to Houston for another shot at a ring at age 34. For much of the year he was the best pitcher in the American League, but October was a test he had not yet faced.

"I've got to be better", he said. "Would've been a great spot for us to get another three runs and good momentum for us, and that seemed to be the big momentum swing for those guys". The Red Sox thought he had recovered enough to contribute in the postseason. Since going to the bullpen in September after missing most of the season with elbow problems, Price has made seven straight scoreless appearances. But the Astros presented an exceedingly rare challenge. Last season's came at the hands of the eventual AL champion Cleveland Indians. "It's one thing to look at them on paper, look at the scouting reports and all this or watch video", Pomeranz said. But his command was disastrous.

"It happens", Sale said.

"I hit one and I was like: 'Wow, '" he said.

Looking to keep Judge at bay will be Corey Kluber, who led the majors in ERA during the regular season (2.25 ERA). For his career, he is 25-29 with a 3.49 E.R.A. from August onward.

For the second straight game, the Astros win 8-2.

Chris Sale has been in the Major League Baseball for six years and has never been to the playoffs so this year is going to be special for him. "I don't think he'll be spooked by not having experience". George Springer, Alex Bregman, Altuve and Carlos Correa - the first four hitters - are a combined 12 of 32 (.375) with six home runs and 10 RBIs.

Houston enjoyed another fast start against a shaky Fister, scoring three runs in the first inning.

Astros starter Dallas Keuchel was a bit wild in the first few innings, and the Red Sox approached him with careful patience, though they didn't capitalize, getting just one run off him in the second inning before he retired the next 11 batters and exited in the sixth.

Hitting wise, the Astros yet again have the advantage.

"He's not the kind of hitter that's gonna hit three homers in a game, but he did it today", Gonzalez said.
