Jose Altuve on his feelings toward the fan who interfered with his would-be homer: "What would you do as a fan? I would do the same. Trying to catch a ball. I don't have anything against him. He's another Astro fan who's rooting for us. I appreciate he was trying to help me."

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Jose Altuve says he never likes to complain about umpires' calls, but he was quite honest in saying the first-inning interference call upset him. He also said he had no hard feelings with the fans. He actually thanked the fans for trying to catch the ball and help him out, although he felt the ball was a homer.

Carlos Correa on the first-inning interference call: "In my eyes it was a homer ... (the call) played a big role in the game."

Of course it had to come down to Alex Bregman facing Craig Kimbrel with the bases loaded and the game on the line on the winning runs on base. He swung at the pitch, lined it to left field and Andrew Benintendi made the do-or-die diving catch. What a catch. What a game. Red Sox win 8-6. Let's do it again tomorrow.

As if this game needed any more ridiculousness, Josh Reddick makes a spectacular diving catch to rob Mookie Betts of at least two RBIs and maybe three. We go to the ninth and Craig Kimbrel is back out there to close it out and put the Red Sox one win from the World Series.

Craig Kimbrel has never recorded a save of more than four outs in his career. He'll need to get six outs to finish off this game and just threw 14 pitches and gave up two hits and hit a batter. David Price was warming up last inning. Who will be tasked with getting the final outs for the Red Sox?

To repeat, Craig Kimbrel's longest outing this season was four outs. And he's emerging from the Boston bullpen with six outs to go.

Six outs left in this game for the Red Sox. Craig Kimbrel in 2018, so far: 6-out outings: 0. 5-out outings: 0. 4-out outings: 6.
