Astros Suspected of Cheating In ALCS, ALDS

Report: Astros possibly caught cheating in ALCS Game 1

The Astros' Tony Kemp robbed the Red Sox of extra bases with a brilliant leaping catch

He had a 1.99 ERA over 23 games for Houston in the regular season after he returned.

The Red Sox lead the best-of-seven series 2-1. He greeted his screaming, excited teammates at home plate with one small jump and a few high fives. Bradley, up with the bases loaded, slapped a bases-clearing double into Fenway Park's left field corner, the ball taking an odd bounce up along the padding of the wall. After being asked about the man claiming to be an Astros' employee and the warning given to the Red Sox, an Indians spokesman said via email on Tuesday, "We are not going to comment on this situation".

"I was just fixin" the left mound", Price told the Eagle Tribune.

Major League Baseball chief communications officer Pat Courtney offered the Metro Times a statement via email, which said, "We are aware of the matter and it will be handled internally".

"Two major league players said they have witnessed the Astros hitting a trash can in the dugout in recent years and believe it is a way to relay signals to hitters". He allowed six hits and two runs with four strikeouts in six innings for the win in the second playoff start of his career.

Cora said he has been concerned throughout the season about Red Sox signs being stolen. Bregman has reached base safely in 20 of 28 plate appearances this postseason.

Sale started to get sick after his Game 1 start, and spent Sunday night at Mass General.

Pearce almost delivered an extra-base hit with two on in the third, but 5-foot-6 left fielder Tony Kemp jumped at the wall and came up with Pearce's towering fly. A pair of walks and that HBP in the second inning led to the only two runs the Astros would score off the lefty in their 7-2 victory.

With left-handed starter Dallas Keuchel unlikely to face Nunez' spot in the order again and Houston carrying just one lefty in the bullpen, Cora made the decision to pull Nunez and get the left-handed hitting Devers into the game after Nunez' single. Ironically, it was the Red Sox who were fined by the league last season for using an Apple Watch in a sign-stealing scheme. Devers took over at third in the bottom of the fourth after pinch-hitting for Nunez in the top of the inning.

"I twisted it on that foul ball down the third base line (by Yuli Gurriel in the first inning)", he said.

"If you guys see him throwing during the game, don't panic".
