Astros vs. Red Sox

Neither the Astros nor the Red Sox seem concerned about Instagram

With seven walks throughout the first three games as Boston pitches him carefully why not take the advantage of having the leadoff man aboard? According to the report, the man claimed to be an Astros employee, did not have a media credential and had a small camera while texting frequently.

The Indians were concerned the man was attempting to view scouting reports Cleveland had on Houston's players, one person said. Yahoo! Sports added that the same man, identified as Kyle McLaughlin, had filmed the Indians' dugout during the ALDS before security removed him there, as well. The Indians were swept by the Astros in the ALDS. He had been credentialed by Houston and photographed with team owner Jim Crane.

On that note sign stealing is a common practice in baseball, and somewhat easily done due to the down time in games that allow for keen observation. The use of electronic devices is prohibited.

Do the Sox' think the Astros will be disciplined this time? Though the permutations of the game would have obviously gone far differently had the ruling on Altuve's swing been different, the fact that the margin of the Astros' loss matched the number of runs they thought were robbed from them made it sting nevertheless.

MLB's original statement mentions that the Astros' employee was monitoring other teams to see if Houston's opponents were cheating. The Astros closer got two outs but allowed two singles and plunked consecutive batters to force in a run.

According to ESPN, the Astros were using the man to monitor the Red Sox and make sure they weren't doing anything outside the rules.

"We are aware of the matter, and it will be handled internally", Pat Courtney, MLB's chief communications officer, said Tuesday night, following Boston's 8-2 victory in Game 3 at Houston's Minute Maid Park. "I mean, these are all must-win games at this point".

Manager Alex Cora announced after Wednesday night's win in Game 4 that Price would be the choice to fill in for Chris Sale, who feels too weak to pitch after spending Sunday night in the hospital for treatment of a stomach illness.

"I don't remember what-all happened", said second baseman Brock Holt.

"For him, I know it's a special one", Boston manager Alex Cora said. 'They'll do what they have to do.

"I was just fixin" the left mound", Price told the Eagle Tribune. "But everybody was out there giving it their all, they just had some really good arms to back it up".

According to Yahoo, a pair of Major League Baseball players claimed to have witnessed the Astros banging a trash can in the dugout in recent years, ostensibly to indicate to the hitter what the upcoming pitch would be.

The Red Sox have a 3-1 series lead in the American League Championship series.

The matchup that matters most: With the Red Sox patching together their pitching for Game 5, they might need some extra offense generated by the top of the order.

Mitch Moreland's injured hamstring is still improving, but the Red Sox are uncertain if he'll be able to start tonight against right-hander Charlie Morton in Game 4.

Steve Pearce hit a tiebreaking homer for the Red Sox off Joe Smith in the sixth, a drive that sailed just inside the foul pole in left field for a 3-2 lead.
