Immediately after, David Price, who earned his own bit of redemption in the Red Sox's 4-1 win, could be seen yelling from the dugout, "Post that!" a clear reference to Bregman's trolling.
Was getting a postseason win enough for Price? It's tough, and we'll learn from it. We're playing against some really good ball teams here. It was a quest that started back in mid-February, when the Astros kicked off their title defense amid a swirl of controversy. "This is what we set out to do when we come to spring training". However, Boston scored eight runs in Games 3 and 4 and another four while Verlander was on the mound in Game 5, so it could very well be in their heads. When Houston reported for Grapefruit League duty the following day, Verlander elaborated on his response.
"There's nobody on this team that I can think of in baseball that deserves it more than Jackie", Price said.
You know The Narrative, right?
After steamrolling the Cleveland Indians in a sweep in the division series, the Astros went out with little more than whimper.
This isn't the first time Belichick gave the Red Sox a positive shoutout this year. Entering Game 5, the veteran righty had a pristine track record in elimination games. Marwin Gonzalez homered off reliever Matt Barnes to bring the Astros within 4-1. Coming into Game 2 of the ALCS, Price's teams had never won a game in which he started in the postseason.
After throwing up two more scoreless frames to start Thursday's contest against the Red Sox, Verlander finally yielded a run in the third inning. Facing Boston slugger J.D.
During the regular season, Bradley, who is known for his spectacular plays in center field, hit.234 with 13 homers and 59 RBI.
The score stayed that way until the top of the sixth, when Verlander allowed a double to Mitch Moreland to start the inning.
The umpires ruled it a home run for Jeter, tying Game 1. If the Red Sox go on to win the World Series, he might be able to use that ball to contribute to his college fund. Better safe than sorry, we guess. "And I want to continue to work, ideal my craft and hopefully keep on winning". We lost to a great team. I said it a year ago: Playoffs, it's flip a coin sometimes. "I heard somebody today on TV just blasting David, blasting him, calling him the worst pitcher in the postseason". He got a standing ovation when he walked off the field in Fenway Park in game two.
It's been eight long, grueling months since a Boston sports team appeared in a championship game.
"We do feel that we have the best outfield in the big leagues", Red Sox manager Alex Cora said.
