Astros Suspected of Cheating In ALCS, ALDS

REPORT: Astros Suspected of Cheating In ALCS, ALDS MLB investigates suspected Astros cheating in ALCS Game 1

Game 4 of the ALCS ended in absolutely thrilling fashion late Wednesday night as a diving catch in left field by Boston's Andrew Benintendi gave the Red Sox an 8-6 victory and 3-1 series lead. The Red Sox dropped that game but have taken the last two.

However, a league source said Tuesday night that the investigation concluded the Astros employee was not trying to steal signs, but was acting on suspicions the Red Sox had been stealing Astros signs, and was there to try to catch them in the act.

MLB's original statement mentions that the Astros' employee was monitoring other teams to see if Houston's opponents were cheating.

Buster Olney of ESPN was the first to report the news on Wednesday.

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported the Cleveland Indians filed a complaint with Major League Baseball regarding the Astros trying to film the inside of their dugout during Game 3 of the ALDS.

There has been no denial by Major League Baseball, the Red Sox, Astros, or Indians regarding the incident or any of the aforementioned details.

But the data reported Tuesday represents "a substantially larger number than in previous months this year", Messonnier said. Messonnier said the CDC has definitively ruled out polio - which causes a similar set of symptoms - as the cause.

During the early innings in Game 3, the Indians became aware that the man standing near their dugout in Progressive Field was aiming his cellphone into their dugout and taking pictures.

Bregman couldn't go deep against Eovaldi as he and teammates George Springer and Jose Altuve had back in June, however - the back-to-back-to-back event he posted on Instagram on Monday - and for all the old-school love of making contact, the Red Sox's ability to hit the ball out of the yard made the difference.

Asked if he thought anything untoward was going on at Fenway Park during Games 1 and 2, Cora said, "No, I don't". "If we feel there's something going on, we change the signs". Charlie Morton's Game 4 start will be his first since throwing three innings in Houston's regular season finale on September 30.

Like the Red Sox Hall of Famer that he is, though, Castiglione managed to finish the call and was no worse for wear.

"I'm always concerned about [sign-stealing] throughout the season", Cora said after the game.
