Fan interferes on possible Altuve HR in Astros 8-6 ALCS loss

David Price found his changeup and shook his postseason reputation

The others, the 2001 Seattle Mariners and 1998 Yankees, had mixed postseason outcomes: the Mariners lost in the ALCS, the Yankees won the World Series.

Verlander is as close to ideal as it gets in the postseason, especially in elimination games, but he nearly had to be flawless for the Astros to win at home this season and he simply wasn't Thursday. "To do it again is - it feels even harder".

Brown, who grew up in Red Sox Nation, said she moved to Houston in 1966 and turned her allegiance to the Astros. Therefore, it is the Yankees' most bitter foe going to the World Series.

It was virtually unimaginable that the Red Sox could march into Minute Maid Park with the series tied at 1-1 and fly out of here three victories later. "It's one of those things you get put on this stage, it's a bigger platform".

Boston is back in the Fall Classic for the first time in 5 years when they beat the St. Louis Cardinals in 6 games.

It appears the second coming of Steve Bartman will be back in Minute Maid Park tonight as his Astros look to avoid a Game 5 elimination.

Wherever the Red Sox go, they win. The Red Sox were last in the World Series when they won it all in 2013. "Threw quite a few pitches to come in for the next hitter, found something out while doing that and kind of just carried that over to today", Price said.

"Since Day One, we knew we had something special".

Combined Powerball, Mega Millions jackpots top $1.3 billion
When the jackpots flirt with the half-billion-dollar mark, state lotteries don't even feel the need to advertise, he said. And one of those, sold in Texas, had the Megaplier option, available in most states for an extra $1.

There was a particular sweetness to this clincher because it previewed as Goliath versus David (Price).

Houston will send out Justin Verlander in Game 5 and because Chris Sale is still out while recovering from an illness, David Price will take the bump for the Red Sox on three days' rest. He recorded a personal playoff career high in strikeouts with nine, while pitching six shutout innings.

The Astros had Kimbrel on the ropes, with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Boston's pitchers held the Houston Astros to just five hits, and Red Sox third-baseman Rafael Devers continued his surprising postseason with a three-run homerun Thursday night as the Red Sox won the American League Championship Series.

Though the Astros never faced a 3-1 deficit on their march to the 2017 World Series title, playing with their backs to the wall was not a wholly unfamiliar feeling for them.

The Red Sox have retained this approach all season; they have maintained focus and toughness and maximized their talent base.

Bartman immediately became a symbol of the team's cursed fortunes.
