Alex Bregman on the Astros failing to repeat: "To be honest with you, this year's team is better than last year's team, I believe. The ball's gotta bounce your way in the postseason. It's tough, and we'll learn from it. Everyone in here will have a little bit of an edge to play with next year, a little bit of a chip on their shoulder, knowing that we believe we should have been back-to-back champions."

David Price changed the script and tossed six dominant scoreless innings to win his first game as a starter in the postseason and send the Red Sox into the World Series with a 4-1 victory over the Astros. The Red Sox swept all three games in Houston, the 108-win team knocking off the 103-win team in the clash of titans.

Instead of toasting again, the Astros are toast. With a 4-1 loss to the Red Sox in Game 5 of the ALCS, Houston's bid to repeat as World Series champs is officially over. They were attempting to become the first team since the 2000 Yankees to win back-to-back titles.
