Justin Verlander, which was offered up by the Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros on Saturday night. They are also the best two teams I've ever seen matched up in a postseason series in my lifetime. Sale's lackluster start was just the beginning of the Red Sox's frustrating night as the Houston Astros tabbed the home team with a 7-2 loss. The blast was a huge insurance run at the time, and the Astros went on to bust the game open by scoring three more times in the inning.
Boston's ace turned in an underwhelming start in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series, tossing just four innings in which he allowed two runs on one hit with four walks.
Sale finished the night going just four innings, allowing two runs on one hit, while walking four, hitting another, and striking out five. Game 1 was the first time he did it while throwing fewer than six innings. Furthermore, all four walks and the hit batsman came within the first 12 batters of the game. They were not scattered.
Boston's new manager was ejected in the fifth inning when he argued a third-strike call on Andrew Benintendi with runners on second and third base with two outs. He also came on in relief during Game 4, retiring all three batters he faced during the eighth inning.
For the Red Sox, there were red flags abound. You know, fastball and fastball glove side.
Why was Sale possibly overthrowing? As for his velocity, he topped out at 96 miles per hour, but his average fastball sat at 92 miles per hour. It cracked 94 miles per hour only a handful of times.
- The Game 1 victor has come out victorious in 31 of the previous 48 ALCS matchups. "He is one of the best pitchers in the game and I know everyone in here has a ton of respect for him". "He's tough. He's a competitor", said Astros third baseman Alex Bregman following Game 1. "It's not a comfortable at-bat ever".

Upton attended one of the Houston Astros' ALDS games against the Cleveland Indians earlier in the playoffs. His velocity has been a focus since a shoulder issue landed him on the disabled list in August. At 97-99 miles per hour though, he's a monster.
"Early in the game it was off", Cora said. Besides that, he threw three good sliders in the third inning to finish off and then the last inning was a lot better. Velocity-wise he finished strong. That was enough for Cora, though, who pulled Sale after 86 pitches.
"His velo, you could tell he was down a little bit". Sale got two quick outs, but then walked Carlos Correa, plunked Martin Maldonado on the hand with a fastball and walked Josh Reddick. "It's just a lot easier when he's 91, 92, 93 as opposed to 97. Any time he's not going to be 100 percent you feel like you've got an advantage".
A bad start can be just a bad start.
Sale wasn't anything like he's known to be and nothing like he was against the Yankees in the ALDS.
Reddick, who played three years in Boston to start his career, smashed a 419-foot solo home run to right-center in the ninth inning to extend the lead to 4-2 Saturday. Much has been made of David Price's constant problems in October as a starter, and the worries about his fitness didn't get any better after he was bombed in a short and brutal Division Series start against the Yankees. Because of that relief appearance, Sale may have taken the mound with something less than a full tank Saturday night, though he brushed that off Friday.

But you shouldn't look past them, the Astros are really good. "It's a great attribute for these guys to continue to reach for it". By the time the Yankees pitchers were finally able to record three outs in the inning, the Red Sox had jumped out to a 10-0 lead.
