The Boston Red Sox win the American League Conference Series with a score of 4 – 1. So funny enough, the Sox won the series in five games and the score was the same as their record in this series.
Red Sox Win withe David Price at the Helm
First and foremost, David Price was able to put his playoff struggles behind him. At the same time, Price has been trying for years to win a playoff game. Finally, he was able to do so. From the first inning on, Price was dominant throughout six scoreless innings.
Now that Price has won his first playoff game; he can breathe a sigh of relief.
Red Sox Win 4 – 1
With Price pitching on three day’s rest, he was able to have complete command of all of his pitches. Besides the solid pitching performance, both J.D. Martinez and Rafael Devers went deep. Moreover, Jackie Bradley’s 9 RBI’s earned him the MVP of the American League Conference Series.
Indeed, this win against the defending World Series Champions, the Houston Astros was priceless – no pun intended.
