Teixeira: Price has a chance to prove doubters wrong in Game 5 (1:25)

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."

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

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."

Hinch: I firmly believe in our team (0:23)
Hinch: We assumed Mookie was going to make a spectacular play (0:57)

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."

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

��� Left fielder Andrew Benintendi made a diving catch with the bases loaded for the final out, and the Boston Red Sox held off the Houston Astros 8-6 on Wednesday night to take a 3-1 lead in the AL Championship Series.

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.

Reddick's diving catch ends bases-loaded jam (0:29)
Betts' throw gets Kemp out at second (0:34)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

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.

Altuve ruled out on fan interference (1:32)

According to ESPN Stats and Info, the last time there were multiple bases-loaded BB in the same postseason series was in the 2012 NLDS: Cardinals drew a bases-loaded BB in Games 3 and 5 against the Nationals.

Jackie Bradley Jr. does it again with a 104-mph rocket to right field, a two-run blast off Josh James to give the Red Sox a 6-5 lead in this crazy, back-and-forth game. The Astros would have been out of the inning, but George Springer couldn't quite corral in Christian Vazquez's double to deep right-center. I have a feeling we might still have a couple more lead changes.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

I was about to say ... Rick Porcello has already allowed four balls in play at 100 mph or more and with the way Josh James is throwing, Alex Cora may not want to stick around with Porcello for too long and BOOM! Tony Kemp ties it with a home run that sneaks inside the right-field foul pole (a mere 89.7-mph fly ball).

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

George Springer was fired up over the home run call on Jose Altuve, slamming his helmet down when the play was ruled fan interference. Now he's hit his fourth home run of the postseason after already extending his postseason hitting streak to 13 games (going back to last year's World Series). Oh ... it's only the bottom of the third.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Charlie Morton's night is over. Mookie Betts' RBI double in the third knocked Morton out of the game. The Astros' righty lasted 2.1 innings and threw 53 pitches. That's only five fewer pitches than he'd thrown in the last month.
