Boston beats Houston to tie the AL Championship Series

HUntil yesterday, the Major League Baseball postseason had never seen a two-homer game with a full house. Early on Saturday, he saw the first one, as Hand in hand with Grand Slams by JD Martínez and Rafael Devers, the Boston Red Sox won Game 2 9-5 against the Houston Astros, tying the AL Championship Series and stealing the home before the first game at Fenway Park.

There was no comeback, like on Friday, which from Boston’s 3-1 in the third ended in a Astros 5-4 win.On Saturday afternoon, after inning and a half, they were 8-0.

Boston shook Luis Garcia. The damage could have been worse because the first out in the first was a catch by Chas McCormick in center field. The house was filled and Julio Daniel was in charge of emptying the house with a whole back stick.

Garcia was not well. He finished the inning, but after walking Plawecki on four pitches, he was treated on the mound and couldn’t continue. Odorozzi had no better luck because he filled the house with one out and now it was Rafael Devers who brought four runs to the plate.

In MLB history, only five previous games had seen Grand Slams in the first two innings.

Boston added one more in the fourth, in lonely home run by incandescent Kiké Hernández. 9-0 and had not reached the middle of the game.

Houston was finally able to hurt Nathan Eovaldi in the bottom of the fourth, making a rally of three, with Kyle Tucker and Yuli Gurriel producing the races. Gurriel himself was the one who had the opportunity to put his team fully into the game in the next turn at bat, in the sixth. He had two on board again, but now he missed with a grounder for a third that put an end to hope. Gurriel put up one more solo homer in the ninth, followed by another from Castro.but it was too late.

Boston steals home before traveling to Fenway Park, where they will be the next three games in the series.
