Alex Bregman trolls Red Sox pitcher Nathan Eovaldi

Alex Bregman trolls Red Sox pitcher Nathan Eovaldi

Tuesday will be Keuchel's ninth postseason start and first since allowing four hits and two runs in five innings of Houston's 11-3 win over the Indians in Game 3 of the Division Series on October 8.

If Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman was trying to get under Nathan Eovaldi's skin when he posted an Instagram story featuring the Boston Red Sox pitcher, it may not have resulted in the expected outcome.

Matt Barnes struck out Gonzalez to end the inning and then pitched a ideal sixth to earn the victory.

"Obviously, there's fun banter, " Hinch said (via USA Today).

"He didn't start feeling bad until after the game", said Cora, who hasn't announced his rotation for the Houston games. The bullpen allowed only one hit in three innings to shut down Boston's powerful offensive attack.

"I've heard nothing but good things about him now", Eovaldi said.

Mookie Betts scored on Benintendi's hit and also scored an insurance run in the seventh on the second passed ball of the inning by catcher Martin Maldonado.

The Astros' Game 3 starter was the latest to join the chorus critical of baseball "bullpen days" - a starter-by-committee approach that is changing the way the game is played.

Shortstop Carlos Correa has been on base four times this series, though he's playing with a back injury that's severely limited him for most of the season.

Edward Lampert, the hedge fund manager who has been CEO of Sears Holdings since 2013, is stepping down from that role immediately. The company has said it's the nation's largest provider of home services, with more than 11 million service calls a year.

"I'd rather miss where I did than the middle of the plate (like he did vs. the Yankees in the ALDS, )" Price said. He's played a couple of balls off this wall nearly like a home player.

Bradley's double to left in the third inning plated Xander Bogaerts, Steve Pearce and Rafael Devers to put the Sox up, 5-4.

But at least we have a reason to feel better about Price, and a reason to feel a whole lot better about the Boston bullpen.

Once Price was out of the game, Matt Barnes got four outs with nary a scrape.

The Astros offense has no quit in it, and given the affordable price in them in Game 3, it triggers a bet.

Sale was released from Massachusetts General Hospital, where he had gone because of a stomach illness after he pitched in the series opener.

"He gave his team a chance to win", Cora said.

The Astros didn't work out Monday, so the brazen 24-year-old Bregman wasn't available to reporters. "From what I know, it's nothing serious". "The guys just keep coming at you and there's so many different ways we can win a ball game".

Sale dealt with shoulder inflammation during the regular season, but still finished with a 12-4 record and a 2.11 ERA in 27 starts. They trotted out a pair of Cy Young Award candidates-ace Justin Verlander, whose 6.2 WAR was third in the league, and No. 2 Gerrit Cole, whose 5.3 was sixth-in the first two games and should probably have won both. They saluted him again when Cora came to get him after 4 2/3-one out shy of that elusive first win as a starter-and Price slightly doffed his cap as he walked to the dugout.
