Boston Red Sox hope home-field advantage makes difference in ALCS

FIRST FOR EVERYTHING Brock Holt is congratulated after becoming the first player in Major League Baseball history to hit for the cycle in a postseason game during the Red Sox’ Game 3 win Monday night in New York

Cora suggested that Price's short outing in the ALDS against the Yankees was owed to the opponent.

Nathan Eovaldi and 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor Rick Porcello are expected to start Games 3 and 4, after picking up wins in the same roles against the Yankees. I really don't believe in stuff like that.

Emma Baccellieri: Manager Alex Cora seems to have made up his mind here, saying Price will be ready to start Game 2. I think that's what puts everything in perspective. Yes, Boston already wanted to Sox it to the Yanks, but now they had that little extra motivation. But Cora, of course, has the best read on what that means to Price-and he's decided that the best answer here is also the most conventionally statistically sound one. He lasted just three innings, allowing six earned runs on seven hits. The only show in town thanks to the NHL's decision to move the Bruins-Red Wings game up to 3 p.m., Game 1 will feature Chris Sale going against the Astros' Justin Verlander in a true battle of American League aces.

Red Sox analyst Lou Merloni said that there was a tipping issue, evidenced by Boston batters' ability to consistently lay off Severino's sharp-breaking slider. Well, he led Boston to the most regular-season wins in franchise history and now has the ballclub four wins away from the World Series.

About 38,000 people signed a petition, organised by campaign group Republic, against taxpayers' money being spent on the occasion. The Royal Family and The Duke of York's YouTube channels as well as Facebook and Twitter pages will show the event.

Game 2 (Boston): Oct. 14 - 7:09 p.m. Against a patient, powerful and righty-heavy Astros lineup, Rodriguez doesn't inspire much confidence.

Cora appears fairly mild-mannered in the dugout and rarely gets animated during games.

Jack Dickey: Price's postseason struggles remain unexplained, and it would be tempting, in the absence of a definitive explanation, to let him continue starting. Price and his team would be better served were he used situationally.
