Lone Star shocker for Boston Red Sox

Boston Red Sox Boston Red Sox Red Sox Lack True Star Power

Keuchel, the 2015 AL Cy Young Award victor, known as much for his beard as his devastating sinker, was cheered on by Houston's other famous bearded superstar as Rockets guard James Harden watched from a front-row seat behind home plate.

The cashiers at the ticket window don't ask about past ailments, or how each horse fared at a track upstate earlier in the month.

John Farrell went first, and for roughly 25 minutes, the manager ducked, dipped, dove and dodged questions about his job security. Those are the tickets that pay out.

For his sake, Farrell needs his team to respond. Keuchel would pitch 5.2 innings, striking out 7 Red Sox batters and only giving up one run in the process.

Sale, who is known to wear down at the end of the year, surrendered seven runs over five innings, and Pomeranz gave up four runs in just two innings. By the first turn, anyone betting on Pomeranz had torn up their tickets.

Trump may decertify landmark Iran nuclear deal
In a meeting with the military leaders, Trump emphasised that Iran must not be allowed to obtain the nuclear weapons. Trump on Thursday accused Iran of supporting terrorism and exporting "violence and chaos across the Middle East".

Another first-inning outburst could sink the Red Sox.

The '16 team had God's gift to slugging in David Ortiz and boasted the best offense in baseball. They have never swept a postseason series since their inception in 1962. He gave up six extra-base hits for just the second time in his career (3 home runs, 3 doubles).

Relying on precision rather than power, Kyle Hendricks pitched the Chicago Cubs to another winning start in October. It's how Madison Bumgarner has been able to commandeer entire postseasons for the San Francisco Giants. Boston is known for having some of the most passionate and supportive fans in all of baseball, which could help the Red Sox win both games at Fenway. It's up to me to go out there and perform to my abilities, Bogaerts said. He used Eduardo Nunez over Hanley Ramirez as the Game 1 designated hitter, even though Nunez had two at-bats in the past month because of a sprained knee ligament. Those guys carried the load. The Astros are hitting.343 and have scored 16 runs in 16 innings, stomping on Chris Sale and Drew Pomeranz, the 17-game winners atop Boston's rotation. "They got to see me, I got to see them". Those hinge largely on Doug Fister, the journeyman right-hander who lost to the Astros last Friday. Those wins had to be imported.

These games have gone so miserably that Craig Kimbrel, the All-Star closer who strikes out almost half of all hitters, was reduced to mop-up duty on Friday, just to stay sharp.

"It's a good question". The teams now head off to Boston for Game Three on Sunday. "Orange is a very electric color, and it's hard to miss, so when we have an orange-out or a lot of fans wearing orange, especially in Keuchel's Corner, it's a good feeling to have". "We gotta take a step back on the off day". "We have that ability too, the one inning to take off, just hasn't happened". The Red Sox starters have struggled mightily, as has Boston's bullpen. Sure, he's supposedly not 100 percent and the Red Sox don't want to stretch him out, but this is the reason Boston signed him right? The Red Sox had hoped to torment Houston's pitchers with walks, singles and doubles, then dash aggressively around the bases.
