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

The Boston Red Sox were winning a playoff game started by David Price, against the undefeated-in-October Houston Astros.

The Red Sox starting pitcher has been admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital after experiencing stomach illness. As for when he'll throw a baseball next, the team has no idea.

Cora said that Sale's condition didn't effect his performance in Game 1. It's about the individual. "Got to the point during the season that we had to actually take him out of the lineup for three, four, five days during the week - actually right before we went to Houston".

Sale, 29, reported the illness earlier in the day and was held overnight for observation, according to the team.

"When you look at our team, I don't really see any weaknesses", Astros shortstop Carlos Correa said. "(Trainer Brad Pearson) texted me about it. "If I got it, it would have been on the street behind Fenway Park". "Nothing serious. He was going to go through a battery of tests and see what was going on", Cora said.

They needed Rick Porcello, their theoretical Game 3 starter, for an inning of relief Sunday night - he delivered a 1-2-3 eighth and punctuated an inning-ending strikeout with a couple of animated fist-pumps - which likely pushes him back to Game 4 and puts Nathan Eovaldi in line to start Game 3 against Houston's Dallas Keuchel.

The Sox don't have many options for Game5 if Sale is unavailable. David Price can't pitch in the postseason.

Ultimately, with a lineup that includes likely AL MVP Mookie Betts, potent designated hitter J.D. Martinez and others, the Red Sox could remain competitive and make life hard for the Astros. Alex Bregman then came to the plate, and the Astros No. 3 hitter lifted a high fly ball to deep left field? just as Gary Sanchez of the Yankees had done against Kimbrel in the ninth inning of Game 4 of the division series with the bases loaded. Kimbrel, who was on the mound when the Yankees nearly overcame a three-run deficit in the deciding Game 4 of the division series, put another scare into Red Sox fans on Sunday night before finally recording the save.

"(Devers is) doing well. You get the different tweets and the different Instagram posts and it's all in good fun. Price exited to a nice hand from the crowd after issuing two walks in the fifth, and it was the first time his team won any of his postseason starts. Houston gives up 2.7 runs per game when Keuchel starts. Eovaldi was making just his fifth start of the year after a long layoff because of Tommy John surgery.

"I don't take it personal", he said. Eovaldi's previous start against the Astros didn't go well. Stronger in starting pitching, deeper in the bullpen, more varied on offence and incredibly well-coached, it's nearly as if an opponent needs to play a flawless game to get the better of them.

The Astros are beat up.

If the Brewers win: They're one victory from reaching their first World Series since the 1982 Brew Crew of Robin Yount, Gorman Thomas and Rollie Fingers. He allowed two runs in five innings in the Game 3 clincher against Cleveland. Altuve has been on base three times this series with no extra-base hits.

"Obviously, there's fun banter, " Hinch said (via USA Today). "It's not comfortable for him. But I'm very happy that we won".
