Fan interference wipes out possible homer for Altuve in ALCS

MLB ALCS-Boston Red Sox at Houston Astros

Upton also retweeted multiple posts saying the play should have resulted in a home run for Altuve, including a reply to her tweet that accused Major League Baseball of conspiring against the Astros to put the more popular Boston Red Sox in the World Series. While he had three hits and two RBIs in Game 4 - his only multi-hit game this postseason - he hit a relatively quiet.316 with three RBIs against the 108-win Red Sox.

Los Angeles has a 3-2 lead in the NLCS going into Game 6 on Friday night at Miller Park. And even then, the Astros weren't fully ready to admit what five games in October had settled.

Before Game 5, Price was 0-9 with a 6.16 ERA in 11 postseason starts. Price's fastball/changeup combination was what kept the Astros lineup from scoring a run during his outing.

Gonzalez homered off Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes in the seventh inning before Game 3 victor Nathan Eovaldi emerged from the bullpen to stifle that rally.

All nine of Bradley's RBI came with two outs.

The Red Sox's 4-1 win Thursday night was a departure for this year's ALCS; no other game had seen fewer than nine runs.

The home run chased Houston starter Justin Verlander, one of the best pitchers in baseball, and effectively ended the Astros' hopes of winning back-to-back World Series.

While Verlander was on the mound in Game 5, Houston scored no runs. Martinez and Verlander were teammates back when they both played for the Detroit Tigers. They claimed that McLaughlin was just there to surveil the opposing dugouts to ensure their opponents weren't using any illegal tactics to steal the Astros' signs.

Three innings later and Boston went deep on Verlander again.

Devers joined an exclusive club with his third postseason home run before turning 22. But what most people wanted to talk about Thursday morning was a controversy in the first inning Wednesday night. It's safe to say, he was feeling it.

"We do feel that we have the best outfield in the big leagues", Boston's first-year manager Alex Cora said. "We're going to enjoy this tonight and get after that in two days". In the last five World Series the team with the higher OPS has won. His six swings and misses matched his lowest total of the year.

Houston was trying to become the first team since the 2000 New York Yankees to win back-to-back rings. On the very next offering, an 81 miles per hour curveball, Verlander surrendered a home run to Martinez, who sent the pitch over the left-field wall and off the Conoco Phillips sign to give Boston a 1-0 lead.

Many around the game, even many outside their own clubhouse, believed the Astros were the most risky, most flawlessly constructed and most formidable team in baseball right up until the moment, at 11:41 Central time Thursday night, when it was proved they weren't.

The Red Sox are undoubtedly a team that doesn't need extra motivation, but they aren't pushing it away.
