BOSTON (AP) — first time in his career.That Wei-Yin Chen Jersey , 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 Jeff Locke Jersey , 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 RIGHTIn all Cameron Maybin Jersey , Price was charged with four runs on five hits and four walks, striking out four in 4 2/3 inningsPrice’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 OUTThe 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 HAPPYIt 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 NEXTDallas 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. NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees star shortstop Didi Gregorius needs Tommy John surgery on his right elbow after injuring himself making a throw in Boston during the AL Division Series, and there’s no telling exactly when he’ll be able to play again.General manager Brian Cashman said Friday that Gregorius will be out “until sometime next summer.” Cashman said the team will have a better idea about his return after surgery Lewis Brinson Jersey , which hasn’t yet been scheduled.The surprise announcement at Yankee Stadium led to immediate speculation the team might eventually make a big move to fill the void — pursuit of All-Star infielder and free agent-to-be Manny Machado, now in the NL playoffs with the Los Angeles Dodgers.In the meantime, second baseman Gleyber Torres is the Yankees’ top internal solution at shortstop, Cashman said.“The best option is Didi,” Cashman said. “We’ll wait on him.”The 28-year-old Gregorius is the anchor of the Yankees’ infield, popular with his teammates and a fan favorite.Gregorius broke his own club record for home runs by a shortstop by hitting 27 this year. He batted .268 with 86 RBIs. He is eligible for free agency after the 2019 season.“We are optimistic he’ll play a lot of the season with us,” manager Aaron Boone said.The Tommy John surgery to replace an elbow ligament is much more common for pitchers than position players. Minnesota third baseman Miguel Sano missed the 2014 season as a top-rated minor league prospect, made his debut in the majors the next year and was an All-Star in 2017.The Yankees said Gregorius was hurt last week making a throw from left field after a ball bounced off the Green Monster against the Red Sox — there was such a play in Game 2. Cashman said Gregorius reported a problem with his elbow after getting hurt.Gregorius played the rest of the series, finishing 3 for 14 (.214) as the Red Sox eliminated the Yankees in four games. Cashman said he grew more concerned after seeing Gregorius bounce two throws to first base in Game 4 Tuesday night — “un-Didi-like,” Cashman said.An MRI on Thursday revealed the tear. Cashman said the Yankees were aware Gregorius had a partial tear in the same elbow when they got him from Arizona in a three-team in December 2014.“You never get a clean bill of health,” Cashman said. “It’s the norm that players have underlying issues that may declare themselves, or not.”The throw last week “was the finishing off of something that was a sleeping giant,” he said.Gregorius tore cartilage in his right wrist making a head-first slide home against Baltimore on Sept. 22 and missed time. Gregorius returned late in the season and started in the AL wild-card win over Oakland. Cashman said he had no reason to think the slide contributed to Gregorius’ elbow trouble.Boone and Cashman had previously been scheduled to speak Friday at Yankee Stadium to wrap up the season. In other news:—Pitcher CC Sabathia had cleanup surgery on his right knee earlier in the day. He’s had surgery on the same knee in the past, and been slowed by trouble there in the past. The 38-year-old lefty was 9-7 with a 3.65 ERA in 29 starts this year, but struggled in Game 4 of the playoffs. Sabathia is expected to be fine for the start of spring training. He’s eligible for free agency, and Cashman said the Yankees haven’t held their organizational meetings to map out the future.—Pitcher Sonny Gray appears on his way out of the Bronx. An All-Star with Oakland in 2015, he’s just 15-16 with a 4.51 ERA since the A’s traded him to New York on July 31 http://www.marlinsfanproshop.com/authentic-starlin-castro-jersey , 2017. The Yankees tried changing catchers to help Gray, but the 28-year-old righty still lost his spot in the rotation.“Probably best to try this somewhere else,” Cashman said. “Someone, if they trade for him, is going to get the player we wanted. It just hasn’t worked out here.”—Boone said the team would work with pitcher Luis Severino to help him avoid tipping pitches. The problem, the manager said, will “pop up from time to time.” A two-time All-Star, the 24-year-old righty went 19-8 with a 3.39 ERA, but was hit hard by Boston in Game 3.—Boone, in his first season as a manager, and Cashman said they saw a lot to like in a club that went 100-62. But seeing the rival Red Sox clinch the AL East at Yankee Stadium and then watching them the ALDS in the Bronx left a sour taste. “Hate losing. Hate losing to those guys,” Cashman said.
