While Marisnick got to second base without issue, it didn't matter.

- The Red Sox extended their lead in the eighth inning when Betts ripped a two-out RBI single to score Devers. To be able to get out of that inning and keep us tied that was to me, the ballgame. He has allowed only nine hits in his past four postseason starts, matching Don Larsen (1955-57) as the only pitchers to allow nine hits over a span of four-postseason starts, according to STATS. "So for him to tell me before we even took our jerseys off to put on our postseason shirts that we get when we win, that was special". Compared to the 2016 ALCS Game 1, the viewership was up 42% vs. 2016 with double-digit growth across all key demos.

"I read somewhere in social media", Cora said, "that his only postseason start (in which) he went nine (innings), it was under 50 degrees, he went nine innings and gave up two runs. You could all see that". He pitched a 1-2-3 sixth. Houston ace Justin Verlander used his post-Game 1 press conference to highlight Bregman: "He was a vacuum cleaner over there".

"He doesn't talk on his start day but his preparation is off-the-chart good", Astros manager Hinch said. That's a whopping 113 fewer than the Red Sox. "He wants the ball".

Former Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna was warming in the Astros pen in line for a save bid but ultimately wasn't needed as the Houston offence exploded. Jose Altuve is the reigning MVP in the American League.

They weren't done then, however. Three relievers kept the 'Stros at bay but luck ran out in the ninth inning when Brandon Workman was roughed up for two home runs that sent the crowd rushing to the exits.

Looking ahead to Sunday night, there will be plenty of angst surrounding the Red Sox, the winningest team in baseball this year. They'll need to pitch better, hit better and field better. His velocity was off and his location was erratic.

The Astros, because they are extremely good at baseball, rallied in the second and third innings to take a 4-2 lead.

- Finally, I'm not a betting man, but if I were I'd put a lot of money on David Price to pitch well in Game 2.
