David Price stays afloat to help Red Sox take crucial Game 2

Red Sox catcher plunks umpire Joe West with errant throw to second

He allowed three runs and got just five outs in Game 2 against the Yankees, the only Red Sox loss in the series. After Cole made a throwing error on a ground ball by Xander Bogaerts, he walked Steve Pearce to load the bases. To lead off the frame, Bregman had been drilled on his padded left elbow by a 99.9-mph fastball in a 1-and-2 count, the second of three Astros who were hit by pitches in the series opener between baseball's two best teams.

In the ALCS for the first time since 2013, the Red Sox got four innings from Sale, who struggled early and allowed two runs on one hit while working around four walks.

Game 2 is Sunday night in Boston, when left-hander David Price pitches for the Red Sox opposite Astros right-hander Gerrit Cole.

"That's my first team win as a starter", Price said, smiling.

Game 2 was the first time ever two No. 1 overall picks started against each other in the postseason.

Boston scored two runs in the bottom of the first, but Houston stormed back to tie the game on a two-run double by George Springer.

"I'll be ready for Tuesday", when the series resumes, he said.

It was Houston's 14th straight postseason game with a homer, breaking the major league record that had been held by the Astros from 2001-04. Matt Barnes replaced Price in the fifth, and got Gonzalez swinging to end the threat.

"We came here and won a game, and they played well tonight", Houston third baseman Alex Bregman said. If the Sox cannot manage to salvage this series by splitting the first two games, they face a tough three game stay in Houston where a return to Boston could be doubtful. Unfortunately for Kimbrel, Springer poked a double to left field, then advanced to third base on a wild pitch while José Altuve batted. He said the Boston bullpen was "tremendous" as they closed out the game, and said it feels great to play a role - however small - in a postseason win.

The ball bounced off the Green Monster and rolled awkwardly off the side wall before it was corralled by Gonzalez. As Price left the field, the crowd rose to applaud the pitcher they booed off the mound in Game 2 of the Division Series, and he tapped the brim of his cap.

"It's definitely appreciated", Price said of the ovation.

Ian Kinsler replaced Brock Holt at second base, Rafael Devers slotted in for Eduardo Nunez at third base and Christian Vazquez caught starter David Price in place of Sandy Leon. "It wasn't the line I dreamed up to have, but our offense, our defense, everybody rallied together".

Cora said that Sale's condition didn't effect his performance in Game 1. "But obviously whenever you have to go to the hospital you've got to be 'worried'".

The question mark, as it has been since he allowed 16 runs in 23 1/3 October innings in 2015, was Price.

Cora, in his first year as a manager, had been ejected just once during the regular season.
