It was in this exact setting that the Red Sox last captured an American League pennant, as a Shane Victorino grand slam against the Tigers in Game 6 in 2013 pushed the Red Sox to the World Series, where they defeated the Cardinals in six games.

Sale gave up seven runs in last year's opening 8-2 loss to Houston, including two home runs by Jose Altuve and by Alex Bregman.

Following the Yankees' win in Game 2 at Fenway Park in Boston, Judge played the Sinatra tune from a boombox while walking past the Red Sox.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora is sticking with David Price, saying Wednesday the left-hander will start Game 2 of the AL Championship Series against Houston despite an unprecedented history of playoff struggles.

Boston Red Sox fans were pretty exasperated about having to watch Angel Hernandez ump their games in the ALDS.

Nathan Eovaldi and 2016 AL Cy Young Award victor Rick Porcello are expected to start Games 3 and 4, after picking up wins in the same roles against the Yankees.

"I just believe that there's guys that execute and there's guys that don't". The only other year Boston met a pair of teams in the postseason with triple-digit regular-season wins was in 2004, when the Red Sox beat the Yankees (101) to become the first major league team to rebound from a 3-0 postseason deficit, then swept St. Louis (105) for their first title since 1918.

The victor of the best-of-seven showdown will advance to the World Series. "I think he's going to make some adjustments and he'll be fine". "It's embarrassing and it just keeps getting worse". "He's feeling better, " Cora said.
