Major League Baseball investigating Houston Astros' photographer during ALCS vs. Boston Red Sox

The result was a brutal 8-2 loss at Minute Maid Park to put the Red Sox up 2-1 in the best-of-seven ALCS.

Major League Baseball acknowledged Tuesday night after Game 3 of the American League Championship Series that it had investigated an incident three nights earlier, in which a Houston Astros employee was spotted in the camera well adjacent to the Boston Red Sox dugout at Fenway Park and reportedly aiming a camera into the dugout. The man was allowed to remain in the stadium but was not allowed back into the media area.

Security sources say they had been warned about the man, because of some suspicious activity in Houston's ALDS series against the Cleveland Indians.

The MLB league office told Metro they are aware of the matter and will handle it internally. According to the Boston Metro, which first reported the story, a man claiming to be an Astros employee was removed from the media-credentialed area next to the Red Sox dugout.

Jeff Passan wrote an article late Tuesday detailing how the Cleveland Indians tipped the Red Sox off about Houston's alleged sign-stealing scheme after they were swept away by Houston in the American League Division Series. When asked if he thought anything was going on during the first two games at Fenway, Boston manager Alex Cora said, "No, I don't". "I'm anxious about the game".

He said he can work with the president and criticized O'Rourke for saying he's in favor of impeaching the president. Even if O'Rourke were to lose by that margin, however, it would represent a major gain for Texas Democrats.

'Somebody mentioned (it) to me right now. "He hit it today, but I would go there 100 more times".

The report from Metro brought back memories of a report from ESPN's Buster Olney, who said the Red Sox think the Astros are great a stealing signs and adjusted their chain of communication accordingly.

According to Yahoo, a pair of Major League Baseball players claimed to have witnessed the Astros banging a trash can in the dugout in recent years, ostensibly to indicate to the hitter what the upcoming pitch would be. The series is now being played with a cloud of suspicion. Bregman's double was the only extra-base hit for a team which entered the game having hit at least one homer in a record 14 straight playoff games.

The Red Sox Game 3 win in Houston lasted almost four hours, which is long for a baseball game, although postseason contests are often so lengthy.
