Three takeaways from the Red Sox’s Game 2 ALCS win

Eduardo Nunez makes an error in the sixth inning of the Red Sox's 7-2 loss to the Astros in Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday night

The TBS telecast of ALCS Game 1 between the Houston Astros and the Boston Red Sox generated the top program of the day across all of cable and broadcast TV based on metered market delivery. This was his 10th postseason start and he had been 0-8 with one no-decision.

It's hard to say that Game 1 in a best-of-seven series is a must-win yet it sure feels like the Boston Red Sox are letting the ALCS slip away by losing the opener in their own ballpark.

Not even once in 32 regular-season starts did Gerrit Cole allow five runs, a testament to the incredible 2018 he put together in his first season with the Astros.

The series will now shift back to Houston for the next three contests, beginning Tuesday with Game 3.

And the Red Sox bullpen, long considered the weakest segment of the Boston roster, had to cover the 13 outs that Price left behind, an effort that was aided by the insurance runs the Red Sox scored in the seventh and eighth against the Astros' previously untouchable bullpen (albeit the lesser portion of it).

Andrew Cuomo (Democrat) declared in a statement Saturday that the city has no tolerance for the Proud Boys. The Upper East Side Republican Club where McInnes spoke was vandalized before Friday's event.

Game 2 was the first time ever two No. 1 overall picks started against each other in the postseason. We're just happy when Price doesn't bury his team in the first two innings. Both pitchers squandered leads. That set in motion a two-run double cue shot down the right field line by George Springer.

Still, with all that said, Sunday night qualified as a victory in the morale department for Price. I expect myself to be great in big moments, and I haven't done that thus far in my career.

Cora's faith in Price led him to name him the Game 2 starter as soon as the Red Sox clinched in NY, before anybody else could question the decision. Price was removed after 4 2/3 innings on the mound while Cole lasted six. But Price ran into trouble again in the fifth, and Cora pulled the plug after a two-out walk to Tyler White on four pitches. "But I came here to win, period".

Manager Alex Cora was not about to dwell on the effort of Price.

"It's definitely appreciated", Price said of the ovation. Mercifully, for the Red Sox and their fans, Kimbrel got Bregman to fly out to Benintendi just in front of the Monster in deep left field.
