Astros vs. Red Sox

MLB Investigating Astros Employee For Videotaping Red Sox's Dugout

The stakes: For the Red Sox, a chance to reach the World Series.

It will always seem to us like a game of what-ifs: what if Andrew Benintendi hadn't caught Alex Bregman's liner in the bottom of the ninth? Porcello is going to have to be ideal with his pitch locations in order to have a chance at shutting the Astros down and I think that Houston's going to break him early on in the game, enough to give them a victory and tie the series at 2-2.

Major League Baseball acknowledged Tuesday night that it had investigated an incident Sunday, in which an Astros employee in the media camera well adjacent to the Red Sox dugout in ALCS Game 2 at Fenway Park reportedly was aiming a camera into the home dugout, The Washington Post reported. That's not great, but given the talk leading up to that game being all about how Price is a postseason flop, the fact that the Sox won it in the end had to bouy him at least a little.

The Red Sox will try to lock down the American League pennant with a most curious recipe: David Price on short rest.

"I'm very proud of him, what he's done in the second part of the season and what he's done tonight and in this series", manager Alex Cora said of Bradley to reporters after the game.

Jackie Bradley Jr. hit yet another home run in the top of the sixth inning to give the Red Sox a 6-5 lead at the time. "It's tough. That was two runs in the first inning that would have helped us a bit more". First pitch is set for just after 7 p.m. central time.

Teams Furious MLB Let Astros Off the Hook on Cheating Scandal
Ironically, it was the Red Sox who were fined by the league last season for using an Apple Watch in a sign-stealing scheme. Stealing signs is allowed, as long as teams only use their eyes. "The replay official said I was right", West explained.

Ultimately, the Astros clawed back from a 3-1 deficit via solo home runs from George Springer in the third inning and Tony Kemp in the fourth, both off Porcello.

Take it from Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow who prior to Game 4 of the best-of-seven series said his team was "playing defence" by monitoring other team's activity in opposing parks. Two people familiar with the situation said the Astros tried to get a second person next to the dugout after the employee was removed by security. They've allowed 12 earned runs and 17 hits in under 16 innings.

"I'm 100 percent positive I was going to be able to catch that one", Betts said. The Houston Astros have been cited as an ahead of the curve organization as they've risen in recent years, but now they may be taking things to another level. Center fielder George Springer almost made a leaping catch, but the ball glanced off his glove. As Drellich examines, the lack of clear rules in place and the unnecessarily hushed manner in which the league handles such scenarios only incentivizes teams to continue rule-bending/breaking and to make accusations in the first place.

If the Astros win: It's step one of what they need to be a three-game winning streak to extend their season.

Correa's run-scoring single made it 5-4 in the bottom of the inning.
