Red Sox Celebrate World Series Berth With Boston Booze Party

Boston's Mookie Betts has a ball bounce off his glove as fans in Houston try to catch it in Game 4 of the ALCS

David Price and the Boston Red Sox got the last word with the Houston Astros and were happy to let them know it. Can't cut it in Boston.

The former SC standout was named MVP of the ALCS after the Boston Red Sox defeated the Houston Astros, 4-1, on Thursday to win the best-of-seven series.

It was virtually unimaginable that the Red Sox could march into Minute Maid Park with the series tied at 1-1 and fly out of here three victories later. We will, no doubt, spend plenty of time grousing over the poor performance by umpires that led to disastrous moments for the Astros and left us to wonder if the fix was in.

Verlander, who starred for Houston last postseason after being acquired on August 31, yielded seven hits and four runs in six innings for his second playoff loss with the Astros.

Then, Red Sox manager Alex Cora turned to his closer Craig Kimbrel for the final three outs.

That narrative requires some unpacking as well. He dug his own grave, and the grave of the Astros as they lost to Boston in the ALCS four games to one.

Bradley delivered a huge three-run double off the Green Monster in Game 2, a monstrous grand slam in Game 3 and a go-ahead, two-run homer in Game 4. That set up a playoff rematch with the Red Sox, who were eliminated by the Astros in last year's AL Division Series and had beaten the wild-card Yankees 3-1 in this year's division series.

It's been eight long, grueling months since a Boston sports team appeared in a championship game.

The numbers, both overall and on the defensive side of the ball specifically, back Price's claim.

Altuve went 1 for 4 in the finale.

Any Red Sox fan could have recited the bad numbers: 11 starts, 0-9 record, 6.16 ERA.

Price was thrilled that he won't be questioned anymore about not having a postseason win as a starter. As prevalent as that record was in the story of Price's career, it might as well have been hung around his neck as he took the mound Thursday night.

Price wasn't just starting on short rest for the first time in a decade; he was also doing so one night after being warmed up multiple times during the late innings of Game 4 - a game he would have entered in the ninth had one more Astros batter reached base.

Kimbrel was just a step or two behind Price in the postseason worry-ometer, but he was fine, despite issuing a walk. For Price, that quality of pitching must continue.
