Major League Baseball released a statement Wednesday in response to a possible cheating controversy involving the Houston Astros, clearing the team of any wrongdoing in the process. The Red Sox and Astros were the two best teams in the American League during the regular season.

Citing security sources, Boston Metro reported that a man claiming to be an Astros employee was removed from the credentialed area for media next to the Boston Red Sox dugout Saturday night at Fenway Park.

"I'm always concerned about that throughout the season", Cora said Tuesday night.

All praise to the Red Sox, who after a shaky start in the series, quickly learned to play like the champions we'd expected to face, and then with a ruthlessness and poise we really didn't expect. The Astros are now officially in win or go home mode.

According to Stats by Stats, Bradley the first player in Major League Baseball history to have three straight multi-RBI games in the postseason from the eighth or ninth spots in the batting order. Bregman is hitting.467 in these playoffs and Springer leads the team with three home runs and seven runs batted in.

The disputed call came in the bottom of the inning when umpires ruled a fan interfered with Betts as he tried to snag Altuve's drive above the right-field wall.

The Red Sox took a 2-0 lead against Morton in the first inning when Rafael Devers produced a two-out, two-strike, two-run single to center that scored Betts and JD Martinez. He allowed four runs on five hits and four walks over four and two-thirds innings in Game 2, not factoring in the decision. Someone needed to step up and restore rotation dignity and Eovaldi did just that with six strong innings to get another postseason win. The call stood when replay failed to produce an angle showing whether the fans reached over the barrier to tip Betts' glove or whether Betts reached into the stands in his effort to make the catch. "And I said, no way they're going to overturn this". "He's a player that has a history of those types of incidents", Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich said about Machado.

"It's probably the most excited I've ever been after making a catch", said Benintendi. Whatever I need to do to help us do that, I'm fine with. "If we feel there's something going on, we switch signs".

Benintendi was understandably fired up the second he was up from the ground.

Correa's run-scoring single made it 5-4 in the bottom of the inning.

With the Red Sox facing right-hander Charlie Morton, left-handed hitter Brock Holt is in the starting lineup at second base over Ian Kinsler.

Verlander is 6-1 with a 2.44 ERA in eight postseason appearances for the Astros.
