Astros possibly caught cheating in ALCS Game 1

The Red Sox were caught stealing signs last season using a Fitbit product to communicate between a member of the organization in video replay room to the athletic trainer in the dugout.

Game 4 is Wednesday night, with Boston's Rick Porcello opposing Charlie Morton.

Asked about the allegations after the Sox' Game 3 win, Astros manager A.J.

"I'm always concerned about [sign-stealing] throughout the season", Cora said after the game. She said this was their first time to a postseason Astros game together.

Danny Picard of Metro reported Tuesday that security personnel removed someone with a camera from a credentialed part of the ballpark near the Red Sox dugout during Saturday night's game. Speier reported the Astros were not seeking to steal signs of their own.

Cora said lefty Eduardo Rodriguez could get the start if Sale can't go on Thursday, but added that it may end up being a bullpen day for the Red Sox.

"That's a completely different inning if he hits that ball a foot further or if Tony can't get up on the wall and make that catch", Houston manager AJ Hinch said. We try to slow it down. During the third inning of that game, an alleged Astros staffer was reportedly removed from the venue. "It was my ankle".

"Somebody mentioned (it) to me right now. That was the same ankle".

After Nunez departed, Devers failed to come up with a hard grounder that cost the Red Sox a run in the fifth inning. Nunez had made a few solid plays before leaving.

In a ideal world, Kemp wouldn't have even started Tuesday's game for Houston. "I haven't talked to him today so don't know how he feels; if he feels weak or whatever".

Chris Sale's status for Game 5 is up in the air.

Sale, who spent most of Sunday at Mass General Hospital with a stomach illness, rejoined the team yesterday.

There's a good chance you'll see Sale throwing in the bullpen in the middle of the game, but it's not because the lefty is about to pitch against the Astros.

"We are very excited, we love Houston, we love baseball", said Maria Reyes who is from Guatemala. "We still think he can do it but obviously we have to wait".

We'll have more as it comes out. "When we scored, it turned into "the rally rake.' ". He followed by hitting another pinch hitter, Mitch Moreland, with another two-strike pitch to force in a run and extend the deficit to 4-2.
