Heck, with the heroics of the Boston's "Band of B's", Bradley, Betts, Benintendi, Braiser and Barnes, Red Sox Nation is not in panic mode - even with David Price on the mound for Game Five!

If someone told you that you had to win one baseball game against the Martians to save the human race, you could do far worse than calling on Justin Verlander to be your starting pitcher. Two people familiar with the situation said the Astros tried to get a second person next to the dugout after the employee was removed by security.

Price will be available out of the bullpen for Game 4, according to Cora. He started ALCS Game 1 against the Astros at Fenway, giving up two runs over four innings as he labored through 86 pitches, and it was the next day when he wound up hospitalized. Red Sox manager (and former Astros bench coach) Alex Cora agreed. News also has come in that Chris Sale will not pitch game 5, how will thie affect the Red Sox going forward with a 2-1 series lead in the balance?

Bradley hit a go-ahead homer in the sixth inning, his latest huge swing for a Red Sox team that got knocked out of last year's playoffs by Houston in the Division Series. Porcello has gone back and forth between the rotation and the bullpen this postseason, working in relief in Game 1 of the AL Division Series against the New York Yankees before pitching five solid innings and locking up the decision as Boston clinched that series in Game 4 at Yankee Stadium on October 9. Joe Kelly was the victor after giving up a run in the fifth.

Ultimately, the Astros clawed back via solo home runs from Springer and Tony Kemp off Porcello, and a pair of RBI singles from Carlos Correa.

Milwaukee is expected to add a new arm for the rest of the NLCS after starter Gio Gonzalez left Game 4 in the second inning when he twisted his ankle trying to field Yasiel Puig's infield single. Miley pitched 5 2/3 shutout innings in Game 2 vs. the Dodgers, allowing two hits. In the bottom of the first inning, with the Astros down 2-0, Jose Altuve blasted what would have been a game-tying, two-run home run into the first row of the right-field seats.

Major League Baseball released a statement Wednesday saying that the Astros weren't the only team accused of spying as it related to sign-stealing, and after a thorough investigation the case was closed without any discipline.

However, he has never won a postseason start in his career and against the Yankees in the ALDS, he lasted just 1.2 innings and gave up three runs.

Meanwhile, though not completely dismissive, Cora had a different take - essentially that deciphering signs has been a part of the game for decades and those who are best at it can benefit. Several Astros then aided Pearce, with Verlander grabbing him by the hand and helping him up after the spill.
