MLB Update (ALCS):
- Even with ace Chris Sale missing his scheduled start, the Red Sox sail through Game 5 and finish off the dazed and confused Astros with a 3-game sweep at Minute Maid. David Price silences his critics, at least for the moment, with a masterful 5 inning stint of shut out ball, mixing speeds and hit his spots with remarkable precision. As for the offense, a devastating blow from Devers is the knockout blow against Verlander, who was also softened by an early bomb dropped by J.D. Martinez. Boston can now sit back and watch the NLCS finish up, knowing they’ve now gone through the best, en route to hopefully becoming the best.
