The Boston Red Sox may have won a major league-best 108 games in the regular season Elvis Andrus Jersey , but they find themselves with a 1-0 deficit in the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros after dropping a 7-2 decision in Game 1.The World Series champions led through the majority of the game and survived a tying rally by the Red Sox in the bottom of the fifth inning to take the lead again in the top of the sixth. The Astros were up 3-2 into the top of the ninth and put away the game with home runs by Josh Reddick and Yuli Gurriel.Shortstop Carlos Correa drove in the go-ahead run with a two-out base hit off of the hard-throwing Joe Kelly."I was looking for a fastball, and he throws 100, so I had to be ready for that," Correa told TBS reporter Lauren Shehadi after the game. "It was up in the zone, and I put a really good swing on it."Kelly relieved Red Sox starter Chris Sale, who pitched four innings before manager Alex Cora pulled him. Sale only gave up one hit, but he walked four and gave up two runs. Sale settled down and pitched effectively in the third and fourth innings, but by then, he had thrown 86 pitches, and that count was too high.Game 1: Astros 7, Red Sox 2, Houston leads series 1-0Game 2:Sunday, October 14 at Boston (7:09 p.m., TBS)Game 3:Tuesday, October 16 at Houston (5:09 p.m., TBS)Game 4:Wednesday, October 17 at Houston (8:39 p.m., TBS)Game 5:Thursday Ivan Rodriguez Jersey , October 18 at Houston (8:09 p.m., TBS)*Game 6:Saturday, October 20 at Boston (5:09 p.m., TBS)*Game 7:Sunday, October 21 at Boston (7:39 p.m., TBS)**If necessary.All Times ET. Game 2 tickets:StubHub. Sale was ineffective, but Houston starter Justin Verlander was quite sharp and earned the win. Verlander gave up two runs on two hits, and he struck out six batters, dominating with his fastball.ESPN Stats amp; Info ESPNStatsInfoGeorge Springer gave the Astros a 2-0 lead with a bases loaded single.Springer currently has 12 RBI in his last 10 playoff games. Tonight is his 5th career multi-RBI game in the playoffs, 3rd-most in Astros history behind Lance Berkman (8) and Carlos Correa (7). 9B7G7AAbqdCorrea said Verlander gave the Astros just what they were looking for in the ALCS opener. "Whenever Justin is on the mound, we go to the field expecting to win," Correa said on the broadcast. "That's just what Justin gave us tonight. He did what he does best, shutting down the lineup. They have a great lineup over there, but he was lights out."Game 2 is scheduled for Sunday at 7:09 p.m. ET. TBS will televise proceedings.David Price, who was knocked out of his American League Division Series start by the New York Yankees after 1.2 innings, will start for the Red Sox.Hard-throwing right-hander GerritCole will be on the mound for the Astros.The Red Sox are going to to need a consistent pitching effort from Price, and their big hitters have to come through.Mookie Betts opened the game with a single off of Verlander, but that was his only hit in four at-bats. J.D. Martinez was hitless in three at bats http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-shin-soo-choo-jersey , although he did have one walk.The Red Sox, who ranked first in the Major Leagues with 876 runs scored during the season, were held to three singles. They looked nothing like the team that scored 16 runs in Game 3 of the ALDS at Yankee Stadium.They face a crucial game Sunday. If they drop a second straight home game to the Astros, they will take a 2-0 deficit to Houston and be attempting to win four of the next five games against the World Series champions.Gerrit Cole will take the mound for the Astros in Game 2.David J. Phillip/Associated Press PredictionThe Red Sox sent their best pitcher to the mound, and he was unable to pitch into the fifth inning. Price takes the mound in Game 2, and he has struggled throughout his postseason career.If he doesn't put an end to that streak Sunday, the Red Sox are likely to find themselves in a deep hole. Boston's hitters are also going to have to do quite a bit better with their offense after a three-hit performance in Game 1.Even if Price can pitch a solid game and Cole proves more hittable than Verlander, that doesn't mean the Red Sox will have enough to win this game.They must play a flawless defensive game, contribute timely hitting and make decisive pitches when the game is on the line.The expectation here is that the Red Sox will play better than they did in Game 1, but it will not be good enough.Houston wins Game 2 on the road and takes a 2-0 series lead. The Minnesota Twins had high hopes for the season after a surprising run to the American League wild-card game in 2017. They made a flurry of moves during an otherwise quiet offseason, adding Jake Odorizzi and Lance Lynn to a rotation that already included Kyle Gibson and Jose Berrios, and banked on improvement from younger talents such as Miguel Sano. None of those paid off the way Minnesota hoped. The Twins will miss the playoffs this season after a series of frustrations and setbacks, especially a rash of injuries. Article continues below ...Byron Buxton, Ervin Santana and Miguel Sano were all expected to play big roles in 2018 but spent significant time on the disabled list while Jorge Polanco missed 80 games for a PED suspension. The personnel shortage led to the Twins dealing veterans Brian Dozier, Eduardo Escobar, Zach Duke, Fernando Rodney and Lynn at the deadline to restock the system with young talent. Manager Paul Molitor admits the shortage was frustrating but refuses to use it as an excuse. “You don’t ever want to sound like we’re making excuses,” Molitor said. “Every team has to deal with certain things along the way. We had some things that went not according to plan Prince Fielder Jersey , and we had to make adjustments. Sometimes we did well and sometimes not so well.“I think our guys learned, they’re continuing to learn. There was an obvious fallback from last year what we were able to do, so expectations weren’t met, but I still try to look for positives.”Molitor will again turn to an opener Thursday when the Twins wrap up a three-game series with Detroit at Target Field in Minneapolis. Left-hander Gabriel Moya will fill the role for the sixth time this season and a fourth time against the Tigers, who haven’t scored a run on him. Moya has six strikeouts in six innings while allowing three hits and two walks versus Detroit in 2018.The Tigers rolled 11-4 on Wednesday, roughing up Odorizzi for four runs and six hits while benefiting from five walks in three-plus innings.“Truth be told, I’ll probably forget about 2018 tomorrow,” Odorizzi told reporters. “I’m going to focus on next year, improving and getting back to the pitcher I am and that this team deserves.“Take the good from this season. I made all my starts. I remained healthy. It was by no means a year that I’m proud of, but a year that I learned a lot from. So if I can make the adjustments next year and stay healthy, I’m in for a lot better and will show the fans a lot better too.”Another lefty, rookie Stephen Gonsalves, will serve as the primary pitcher while the Tigers turn to former Twins left-hander Francisco Liriano in what might be his final appearance as a Tiger. Lirano has recorded three consecutive quality starts, though he allowed three unearned runs over six innings in a loss to the Royals on Friday.Minnesota’s Logan Forsythe is in a 1-for-18 slump but is 7-for-12 in his career versus Liriano. Molitor won his 300th game Wednesday against 343 losses since becoming manager in 2015.“It snuck up on me a little bit,” Molitor said. “Didn’t realize it until Joe Mauer acknowledged it after the game, which was nice. I guess baseball likes round numbers. Would like to get to 300 wins already before you have seen 300 losses, but that hasn’t been the case. Keep moving forward.”The Twins won 10 of the first 18 meetings this season and have already wrapped up their second consecutive season series victory.
