One Win Away

The Red Sox are a win away from the World Series following an 8-6 win  over the Astros in Houston.  

It took a fair amount of drama to get that done.

Jackie Bradley Jr. hit another huge home  run, a two run blast in the sixth that put Boston ahead to stay.  

Andrew  Benintendi made a diving catch in left field with two aboard to end the  game.  Had he not made that catch, the bases would have been cleared and the Astros would have won the game.

Joe Kelly picks up the win in relief, with Craig Kimbrel  recording a two inning save.

The game was not without controversy.

Jose Altuve hit a ball that appeared to be at least one row  into the right field stands in the first inning.  

However, he was called  out on fan interference.

The call was reviewed but the shot that would have proven interference one way or the other could not be used because a security guard was standing in front of the camera.

Meantime, Chris Sale will not be the starting pitcher for  the Red Sox in game five of the ALDS tonight.  

Sale rejoined the team  Tuesday after spending Sunday night in the hospital fighting a stomach  illness.  

Manager Alex Cora says Sale will pitch in game six, if  necessary tomorrow.  

David Price will get the start in Sale's place  tonight.
