Alex Cora says he feels "very" comfortable going to Ryan Brasier and Craig Kimbrel tonight if he has to. Brasier has pitched in all four games in the series while Kimbrel threw 35 pitches in Game 4.

Alex Cora said Game 5 of last year's World Series — that 13-12 game when he was a coach with the Astros — prepared him for last night's game. He added that he felt something crazy was going to happen in the bottom of the ninth after Josh Reddick's great catch with the bases loaded in the top of the ninth.


Blame The Umps Or The Fans?

Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre question who should be blamed for negating Altuve's homer; the Umps or the fans, react to the Pelicans blowing out the Rockets, LeBron's debut as a Laker and much more.

Joe West on the José Altuve interference call: "Here's the whole play. He hit the ball to right field. He jumped up to try to make a catch. The fan interfered with him over the playing field. That's why I called spectator interference. (So it's a clear call in your mind?) Yes."

Bradley: This game 'brought out a lot of emotions' (1:13)

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.

Benintendi, Red Sox hold off Astros 8-6 for 3-1 ALCS lead

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.
