Price, Red Sox bounce back, beat Astros 7-5, tie ALCS 1-1

By Jimmy Golen, Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — David Price went home a winner in a postseason start for the first time in his career. That, he insisted, is all he ever cared about. "This is bigger than David Price," he said on Sunday night. "This isn't about me. This is about the Boston Red Sox." Price was good enough, the Red Sox relievers were even better, and Jackie Bradley Jr. delivered a go-ahead, three-run double off the Green Monster to lead Boston to a 7-5 victory over the Houston Astros and tie the AL Championship Series at one game apiece. Price fell one out short of qualifying for the win, which would have been his first in 11 postseason starts. But it was the first time his team had won a playoff game he started, snapping a record run of October futility. "It's baby steps," said Price, who entered the night 0-9 in 10 career playoff starts. "I expect myself to be great in big moments, and I haven't done that thus far in my career. But I came here to win, period. I came here to win a World Series, and to do it multiple times. And that's what I'm about." Game 3 is Tuesday in Houston, followed by two more at Minute Maid Park and a chance for the defending World Series champions to clinch a second straight AL pennant at home. Marwin Gonzalez homered for the Astros, who had won five straight postseason games dating to Game 7 of the 2017 Series. "We came here and won a game, and they played well tonight," Houston third baseman Alex Bregman said. "It's going to be a fun series, so we're looking forward to going back home." Price was spotted a two-run lead in the first inning and then fell behind 4-2 before Bradley clanged one off the left-field wall that Gonzalez chased helplessly as it bounced back toward the infield. Price left leading 5-4 with two on with two out in the fifth before Matt Barnes struck out Gonzalez to end the inning and then pitched a perfect sixth to earn the victory. Ryan Brasier pitched a scoreless inning and erstwhile starter Rick Porcello set the Astros down 1-2-3 in the eighth. Closer Craig Kimbrel gave up Jose Altuve's RBI single with two outs in the ninth before Bregman launched a high fly to left that Andrew Benintendi caught a step in front of the Monster. "I knew I missed it," Bregman said. "If I got it, it would have been on the street behind Fenway Park." Gerrit Cole, who was so dominant in his Division Series start against Cleveland, gave up a double to Mookie Betts — the first batter of the game — as Boston sent eight batters to the plate in the first and scored twice. The AL West champs tied it in the second on George Springer's two-run double down the right-field line. And when Gonzalez cleared the Monster — and the seats above them — with a two-run homer in the third, it looked like Price was headed for another loss (he has won two postseason games in relief.) But Boston, which won the AL East and a franchise-record 108 games, came back in the bottom half, starting with Xander Bogaerts' one-out single and then a double by Steve Pearce that sent Gonzalez crashing back-first into the metal scoreboard on the left-field wall. He fell to the warning track, but after the training staff and manger AJ Hinch went out to check on him he stayed in the game. "The ball, the wall, he's back-pedaling. He's got to make a decision on whether or not to concede the wall and try to play it off the wall or try to make a catch," Hinch said. "It's a well-placed hit." Cole walked Devers on four pitches to load the bases and struck out Ian Kinsler on three before Bradley lofted one down the left-field line and off the Monster. As the ball bounced back toward the infield, it hopped on the padding along the side wall, just out of Gonzalez's reach. "Not really catching a break with it rolling on this awkward piece of padding all the way down was unfortunate," Cole said. "But you put yourself in that position." Betts scored an insurance run in the seventh, walking to lead off the inning and coming around to make it 6-4 on a wild pitch and a pair of passed balls. He gave Boston a 7-4 lead with an RBI double in the eighth. PRICE IS RIGHT In all, Price was charged with four runs on five hits and four walks, striking out four in 4 2/3 innings Price's teams had lost all 10 of his previous postseason starts, the longest such losing streak in baseball history. He allowed three runs and got just five outs in Game 2 against the Yankees, the only Red Sox loss in the series. As Price left the field on this night, the crowd rose to applaud the pitcher they booed off the mound in the Division Series, and he tapped the brim of his cap. "It's definitely appreciated," Price said. "It wasn't the line I dreamed up to have tonight. But our offense, our defense, everybody rallied together." SALE OUT The Red Sox said Game 1 starter Chris Sale was hospitalized with a stomach illness but Cora said he was still hoping the he would join the team in Houston. "He was feeling bad and he's at the hospital," Cora said. "From what I know, it's nothing serious. But obviously whenever you have to go to the hospital you've got to be 'worried.'" Cora said it did not affect his performance in the series opener, which Houston won 7-2 . HOMER HAPPY 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. UP NEXT Dallas Keuchel, who was 12-11 with a 3.74 ERA in the regular season, will start Game 3 for Houston. He allowed two runs in five innings in the Game 3 clincher against Cleveland. With Porcello pitching in relief on Sunday, the Red Sox are expected to start Nathan Eovaldi on Tuesday. He was 6-7 with a 3.81 ERA in the regular season and allowed one run in five innings for the win against the Yankees in Game 3 of the ALDS — his first career postseason appearance......»»

One Heart for the Elephants of Bali

Following a recent visit to the Mason Elephant Safari Park in Taro, Bali, Indonesia, I became curious about how the pachyderms ever got to Indonesia, believing elephants in South East Asia only existed in Indochina, most prominently in Thailand. What I found after surfing the internet piqued my curiosity even more. It seems there once came to Southern Philippines a prince from a Minangkabau kingdom in Sumatra, Indonesia called Pagaruyung (Baguinda is a Minangkabau honorific for prince.) He became the leader of what eventually became the Sultanate of Sulu......»»

Angered by the bitter fight over new US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and what they called the "anti-woman agenda" of the Trump administration and the Republican Party, women -- and men -- descended on the Windy City's picturesque Grant Park.

YOUTH OLYMPICS: Saso struggles in round two but remains in medal contention

BUENOS AIRES — Yuka Saso hobbled with a four-over-par 74 on Wednesday but still remained in the hunt for a podium finish in women’s golf while swimmer Nicole Oliva reached the finals in the 200m freestyle at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games here. The 17-year-old Filipino- Japanese compiled 145 over two days, five strokes off leaders Alessia Nobilio of Italy and Kim Grace of Australia after she bogeyed four straight holes to take the turn at three-over. Saso also had a pair of bogeys on No. 11 and No. 15 and birdied No. 12. "She didn’t play her best today,’" said Saso’s coach Rick Gibson. "It’s really tricky out there today.’" Grace was steady with a 69 while Nobilio scored 72 for an identical 140 with Emma Spitz of Australia two shots behind (70) followed by Hoyu An of Chinese Taipei (72). "I’m hoping for a windy day tomorrow. We handled it well yesterday and hopefully a different wind tomorrow will give us a different look at the golf course, fresh perspective," said Gibson. Carl Jano Corpus also struggled the entire day, limping home with a 76 to fall 10 strokes behind the lead. The 17-year-old bogeyed twice on the front nine and registered three more bogeys on hole nos. 13, 14, 15 after a double bogey on the 10th. Karl Vilips of Australia grabbed the lead (69-68-137) while the only highlight for Corpus was a single birdie on the par-5 No. 11. "Carl had the same problem today. They putted really well yesterday but didn’t putt as well today," said Gibson. Oliva made it to the 200m freestyle finals at the Olympic Park swimming pool but finished seventh in the medal race after clocking 2:02.1. "To make it in the YOG finals is one huge accomplishment for any junior swimmer. Amazing," said Philippine Swimming Inc. president Lani Velasco. "She made top eight in the 200m free event with five heats competing against 36 countries." Ajna Kesely of Hungary captured the gold medal (1:57.8) and China’s Junxuan Yang (1:58) settled for the silver......»»

YOUTH OLYMPICS: Golfer Saso tied for joint second after first round

BUENOS AIRES — Yuka Saso scored a one-over 71 for joint second place at the start of women’s golf while fencer Lawrence Everett Tan and swimmer Nicole Oliva failed to medal in their events on Tuesday in the 2018 Youth Olympic Games. Saso, the Asian Games individual champion, had to contend with the wind at the Hurlingham Club here after she bogeyed six holes to stay two shots behind leader Alesia Nobilio of Italy. The 17-year-old miscalculated three holes on the front nine and another three coming home, but her five birdies, including back-to-back efforts after a par on the par-3 No. 12, was enough to keep the Filipino-Japanese within striking distance. ``Mahangin sa course, mabuti na lang at naka-adjust ako,’’ said Saso, who shared second place with Maria Fernanda-Martinez of Mexico, Emille Oeveraas of Norway, Grace Kim of Australia and Hoyu-An of Chinese Taipei. Carl Jano Corpus, on the other hand, fired a similar 71 performance for a share of fifth place in men’s individual play. The Filipino was two strokes behind the leaders after he birdied holes No. 3, 4, 6 and 14. Akshai Bathia of the United States, Vanchai Luangnitikul of Thailand, Karl Vilips of Australia and Andrea Romano of Italy shared the lead at 69. In fencing, Tan bombed out of the medal stages after falling to Pak Chan of Hong Kong, 11-15, in the round of 16 of the men’s foil event. Chan raced to an early lead, 11-6, in their race-to-15 face-off but had to fend Tan’s rally late in the first three minutes of action. Filipino-Norwegian Christian Tio is still in the hunt for a podium performance after finishing second, fifth and eighth in the three races on Day 2 of the men’s kiteboarding competitions where the medalists will be determined on Oct. 12. Swimmer Nicole Oliva again failed to qualify in the finals of her second event at the Olympic Park pool. After missing the medal race in the women’s 100m freestyle on Monday, the Filipino-American based in Sta. Clara, California wasn’t able to make it in the 800m free after landing third in her heat with a 8:52.29 clocking......»»
