Bullpen delivers, Betts seals it for Sox in Game 2

Kimbrel got the save in Game 2, but it wasn't void of drama.

In the third inning, Price lost a seven-pitch battle with Marwin Gonzalez, who smoked a two-run home run off the middle tarp ad above the Green Monster to give the Astros the 4-2 lead.

Clouds form over the grandstand before the game between the Boston Red Sox and the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park on September 26, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Lo and behold in the top of the fourth, Price covered himself in glory with a shutdown inning that was his best of the evening, a 1-2-3 affair that ended with a flyout from Springer.

Down to their final four outs, David Ortiz delivered one of the greatest clutch hits the game has seen. Beyond that, the Red Sox have concluded that in order to make it to the World Series, and win it, they need Price, a five-time All-Star, in the rotation.

"I was just not able to really find the zone with it and be able to put pressure on them with those offerings", he said. He did, however, guide his team to victory for the first time in 11 career postseason starts, and that was all he cared about after the game.

Sale, who was off with his command and his velocity, was expected to remain at the hospital overnight for observation. Ryan Brasier worked around a two-out walk in the seventh for a scoreless frame. Justin Verlander allowed two runs through six innings, though he needed some pretty sharp glove work in the field to help him get through his appearance.

With Price one out away from being eligible for the win, it seemed a cold-hearted move, but absolutely the right one. "Thats my first team win as a starter". J.D. Martinez lined out to second, and then Xander Bogaerts reached on an error by Cole. The miscue helped set up Rafael Devers' RBI single.

Cole ran into trouble again in the third, thanks in part to Bradley (more on that below). We're just happy when Price doesn't bury his team in the first two innings.

That Price managed to pitch into the fifth and hand over a lead, however slim, to his bullpen represented some sort of breakthrough for the star-crossed lefty.

That, indeed, was Boston's own beleaguered bullpen procuring those last precious outs, mostly without incident. The ball caromed off the wall and onto the padding in front of the left field seats, allowing Devers to score the go-ahead run. That was also a history-making home run for Gonzalez's squadron. He has a 3.28 ERA in nine postseason starts, which includes 5.2 innings of one-run ball against Boston in the 2017 ALDS.

The Sox went on to win that series and ultimately the World Series.

It was Houston's 14th straight postseason game with a homer, breaking the major league record that had been held by the Astros from 2001-04.

Price squandered an early 2-0 lead, as the Boston offense came flying out of the blocks against Cole.

When Bradley came up with the bases loaded and two outs in the third, the Red Sox trailed 4-2 and, per basic win expectancy, had just a 36.9 percent of winning Game 2. By that time, Bradley was standing on second base and the Red Sox had a 5-4 lead, as all three baserunners scored.

Boston won 108 games, the most in franchise history and the most in the game this year, but 103-win Houston actually entered the series as the favorite, 53.8% to 46.2%, according to FanGraphs' playoff odds calculator.
