Correa slugs Astros to rout of Red Sox in Game 2

Dustin Pedroia Returns to Boston Lineup Despite Knee Injury

Dustin Pedroia Returns to Boston Lineup Despite Knee Injury

Charlie Morton, who beat Fister at Fenway last weekend, is Houston's "if necessary" Game 4 starter, while the Red Sox haven't named a starter if that game is played Monday. The Boston Red Sox still need to win Game 3 to make this game possible, but the team does offer refunds for games that don't take place.

"It's tough to be down, period", Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia said. Maybe the fans just feel that the Red Sox have no shot at beating the Houston Astros?

It's still been a bit stunning to play out, as the Red Sox have not looked worthy of sharing a field with their opponent through two games. They managed just eight hits on the day.

The odds are that at least one of the 2-0 series will end thanks to the result of Game Three. Beyond that, the Red Sox had trouble coming up with much in this first game of the series but have a chance to bounce back Friday. Springer's third inning home run put the Astros up 3-1, and he scored in the fifth inning on Correa's double.

A day after Altuve hit three home runs in the playoff opener, he got things going with a two-out single in the first inning off Drew Pomeranz.

Going up against Pomeranz is Dallas Keuchel (14-5, 2.90 ERA). Boston was able to drive in a run, but he limited the damage by finishing the frame with two punch outs and stranding runners on 1st and 2nd. Only two balls even left the infield during that span, which was broken by a Hanley Ramirez walk.

Apple , at first, took its traditional approach of looking down its nose at the complaints and refused to say anything. Several media outlets have highlighted this issue in several countries where the new iPhone models have been exported.

Farrell will send Doug Fister out to the mound in Game 3 on Sunday at Fenway Park against Brad Peacock. At 8-1, the game was over. A report by Deadspin revealed late Saturday night (Oct. 7) that there were still tickets for sale on the team website for the Red Sox.

Backed by a strong pitching performance by Justin Verlander, the Astros defeated the Red Sox by a score of 8-2 on Thursday.

No team in baseball slugs like the Houston Astros. They did slump in a big way in August and, to a certain extent, in September. "I'm grateful that we got some experience in 2015 and hopefully that will carry us to the championship series", he said.

Another first-inning outburst could sink the Red Sox. Game 1 saw Houston win in a commanding way, with the final score 8-2. And speaking of third homers, Altuve would hit his third homer of the game in the seventh inning off reliever Austin Maddox, becoming the ninth player in postseason history to hit three homers in a game. This year through two games, they've been outscored 16-4.

The tire marks were still fresh on the players' chests last October 11 when the Red Sox called dual Fenway Park news conferences to discuss the fallout from an American League Division Series whipping by the Cleveland Indians. With their talent, their payroll, their fan base and their own expectations, that just should not be the case.

The resurrection of the Red Sox coincided with the rise of the New Boston, a city that was undergoing needed urban renewal, while still retaining its Old World charm. These Red Sox finished 22nd in OPS, at.736, far below even the sad and broken New York Mets.
