"Since Day One, we knew we had something special". They then swept the Cleveland Indians in the American League Division Series, outscoring them by a combined score of 21-6. The Dodgers lead that series 3-2 with Game 6 set for Friday in Milwaukee. That enabled elimination of the 100-win Yankees and now the 103-win Astros, further sprucing the Red Sox's team-record 108-win campaign.

On just three days of rest, Price was completely dominant for the Sox on the road. Before the loss in Game 5, Verlander was 5-0 with a 2.42 ERA in his last 5 starts (including postseason) against the Red Sox.

"There was a lot of game left", he said. But a solo homer by J.D. Martinez in the third and a three-run opposite-field shot by Rafael Devers into the Crawford Boxes in the sixth highlighted Boston's grinding, unyielding, put-it-in-play with meaning offense. Tony Kemp sliced a ball down the right-field line, but Mookie Betts made a laser-beam throw to second base (watch here) - throwing out the Astros utility man, who was attempting to stretch the hit into a double. He's taking the Boston Red Sox back to the World Series. And which teams are a must-back?

Martinez reached the World Series by beating the team that released him during spring training four years ago. "I don't know, probably the guy is going to blast me because I'm talking about him - whoever he is - but you know what?" "But it's one of the things where I'm past it, and I'm here because of my struggles and because of my pain that I went through there", he said. His nine strikeouts are a postseason best in his 11-year career.

Facing elimination, the Astros turned to their ace Justin Verlander. They claimed that McLaughlin was just there to surveil the opposing dugouts to ensure their opponents weren't using any illegal tactics to steal the Astros' signs. Marwin Gonzalez homered off reliever Matt Barnes to bring the Astros within 4-1.

Gonzalez homered off Red Sox reliever Matt Barnes in the seventh inning before Game 3 victor Nathan Eovaldi emerged from the bullpen to stifle that rally. Pitching is great to have and the Astros had all kinds of it this season, but Boston's hitting beat the Astros pitching smacking five home runs and 13 extra-base hits in the final four games to close out the series.
