With the Cubs out I'm pulling for the Brewers. If the Brewers get knocked out I would pull for Boston.

That makes sense. Boston is the first and still the ONLY team to ever come back from being down 3-0 in a 7 game postseason series. And makes it even sweeter that both were done vs the Yankees.

The fact that Holt homered off a position player isn't his fault. It still counts in the record books. Just like a strikeout would count for the position player who pitches.

I'm not getting over confident.
I still remember the 3rd game of the 2004 ALCS - Yankees smoked the Sox 19 to 8.
I thought the Sox were dead - they came back and won 4 straight to win the Pennant.

Price is going to have to start having good postseason outings if the Sox are going to win it all.
Astros are playing great and that would be a tough match up for sure.

I get what you're saying.
But Cora overall has been great for the Sox.
Totally different mindset and attitude this year / none of the clubhouse drama.

AB is hot and jawing with the home plate ump.
Bases loaded 8th inning strikes out looking.

I thought it was a little outside but too close to take.

Thought Kimbrel was going to give the game away.
Man, he struggled finding the strike zone.

Fantastic play by Nunez and Pearce to end it.

2 strokes and a heart attack later we win.

I was worried about Kimbrels command. he's had issues throughout the year. Not like the Kimbrel of last year.

I always worry about a closer in post season - sometimes they just collapse under the pressure.
And yes - not the first time this year Kimbrel's come in with command issues.

Nobody deserves it more. Dude gives everything he's got defensively, his struggles at the plate are well documented. I was so happy for him.

The TBS crew is Ron Darling and his sidekick. In the ALDS they were huge Yankee homers. Now that NY is out of it they have turned their extremely biased adoration onto the Astros. I spend more time with the TV muted than I do listening to those two clowns. Tonights GS by JBJ did more than shut up the Houston crowd. It also put a bitter taste in Darlings mouth. I bet he was about to choke the last inning or so every time he had to mention the Red Sox.

No doubt they hit his glove - I just can't decide whether the fans hands were inside the field of play or Betts glove was in the stands.

I see the guy in light grey shirt on the right holding onto the wall, right hand extended out for ball past wall. Guy in Orange reaching out past guy in grey to catch ball. He has contacted mookie glove. Mookie has not made it to the wall at the point of interference.

Mookie drifts into wall well after contact. He was reaching more up than back into the stands. His arm glove or elbow didn't hit the wall. Had he been over the wall it would have.

The ball is right at the wall. In or out, when it's that close, if you are a fan you have to leave it alone.  Not from a rules standpoint, but from a common sense standpoint.

Very disappointed in TBS studio last night - every one of them just so certain this was a home run.
Just because it was going to end up in the stands (which seemed to be their argument), doesn't mean the fans weren't reaching over the wall and interfered with Betts.
They are terrible anyway - I love Pedro but he is not good in the studio.

I switched to MLB network for some post game common sense.

I was hoping to see Harold Reynolds in studio - he's the best.

Half my family is for the Astros and the other half are for the Red Sox.

The more I hear Hinch talk the less I like him. I don't have a problem. with the Astros other than they are playing the Sox. they have a fantastic team and a great pitching staff.

Price going against Verlander doesn't bode well for tonight, especially since Price is on short rest and then got ready to go last night.

If Sale isn't 100% it may come down to game 7 and Eovaldi. This is far from over,.

Tough call - we've seen it replayed a bunch of times and I still can't decide whether the call was correct or not.

Just my opinion here but the call was blown. Based on the replays Betts definitely reached into the stands after the ball. Once the ball crosses the fence the fans are allowed to "make a play" for it. The only thing here though is that they can NOT interfere with the players glove and replays also clearly showed Betts glove being impeded from what was going to be a great catch. (I'm of the opinion Betts would have caught the ball) Were I the umpire I would have ruled it as a ground rule double. NO homerun but NO out either.
