Boston's Mookie Betts leaves Game 2 with a wrist injury

Houston Astros starting pitcher Justin Verlander (35) delivers a pitch against the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of baseball's American League Division Series, Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017, in Houston.

"This is a team that's very, very laser-focused on winning the series". What are those three letters you ask?

Hendricks went about things differently - his best fastball is about 10 miles per hour slower than Strasburg's - but was every bit as good. "And what we do got us in the playoffs, and I'm pretty sure it can win us the World Series, too".

Through two innings the 2015 AL Cy Young Award victor had thrown 48 pitches, given up three hits, two walks and an earned run. The Red Sox are aiming to avoid getting swept in the ALDS for the second straight year after losing to Cleveland last season. Houston has RHP Charlie Morton (14-7, 3.62 ERA, 163K) scheduled to start, while the Red Sox have not announced their pitcher for Game 4. Game 1 saw Houston win in a commanding way, with the final score 8-2. Boston has a history of manager scapegoats, so anything is possible if the Red Sox get totally embarrassed in the series.

"We have been backed into a corner before, it's nothing that we haven't been able to overcome, and it comes down to execution now", Fister said Saturday.

Unfortunately, Paddock decided that he'd carry out his heinous act during the Route 91 festival in Las Vegas on October 1. He said that it was hard to believe that the weapons and ammunition found in his possession were acquired by him alone.

Farrell has one year left on his contract after the Red Sox's decision in December to guarantee his 2018 club option. What a fraud-Oh, he went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored?

Carlos Correa, Jose Altuve and the high-powered Astros led the majors in runs, hits and batting average in the regular season. "Like I said, take it off the chin and be back here tomorrow working my (tail) off ready to go". Their pitching has been good enough-their bullpen has allowed just one run (earned) over 6.1 innings.

Trailing 2-0 entering the bottom of the sixth inning, the Sox put together an improbable rally of the sort that had made the impossible seem possible all season-long, pushing across five runs to take a lead they never would relinquish.

Many Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees fans will be experiencing the lows after yesterday's game 1 of the ALDS, where both teams were beat down by their opposition.

So is Red Sox manager John Farrell surprised that the series has been this lopsided so far? The total has gone over in five of the nine games.

Terrorists planned to kill people in Times Square, concert venues, and the subway system but fell foul of undercover agents. Talha Haroon would have planned to arrive in the United States at the last moment to help perpetrate the attacks.

Springer hit his first postseason homer when he sent the second pitch of the third inning into the front row of the seats in right field. Fister carries a 1.38 WHIP with 83 strikeouts in 90 1/3 innings.

The Astros have some numbers against Fister.

On Friday afternoon, George Springer was 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk and two runs to help lead the offense. Jose Altuve finished 2-for-3 with two walks, two runs and an RBI. The Astros hit a couple of homers.

Beltran, who didn't start against the two left-handers, will be the DH for Houston Sunday. Christian Vazquez was 2-for-3 with a walk and a run to pace the Red Sox. He has hit 24 home runs in each of the past two seasons.

Doug Fister has been named as Boston's Game 3 starter, ending speculation on who would follow Game 2 starter Drew Pomeranz.
