Red Sox Celebrate World Series Berth With Boston Booze Party

JBJ is MVP! Jackie Bradley Jr. wins ALCS prize for Red Sox

Given the chance, Red Sox left-hander David Price wasn't going alone to a news conference Thursday after Game 5 of the American League Championship Series.

David Price in the playoffs?

As good as Verlander pitched through the first five innings - one run, a JD Martinez home run in the third and three other hits - Price was simply better.

After Gonzales hit a solo home run in the seventh, the Astros put a run on board for Josh Reddick.

Verlander, who starred for Houston last postseason after being acquired on August 31, yielded seven hits and four runs in six innings for his second playoff loss with the Astros.

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. earned ALCS MVP honors after collecting a double, two home runs, four walks and nine RBIs in the series.




The Boston Red Sox celebrate after winning Game 5 of the ALCS on Thursday night in Houston. It was left to right-hander Nathan Eovaldi, Boston's Game 3 starter, to secure the four outs that would get the game to Craig Kimbrel.

"They beat us. We ran out of wins", Astros manager AJ Hinch said.

Watch full highlights from ALCS Game 5 between the Red Sox and Astros on CBS Sports HQ. There they defeated the Oakland A's to advance to the ALDS to set up a battle with their rivals the Boston Red Sox.

That did not sit well with Astros fan Kate Upton and she took to Twitter to take Major League Baseball and West to task from her seat behind home plate at Minute Maid Park in Houston.

"I felt good. I think it kind of just all boils down to having a game plan and obviously executing", Bradley told reporters after the game. When Bregman launched an opposite field drive and Betts made a flying catch to prevent a home run, fans in the outfield look like they had just been ordered to surrender by police. After Raphael Devers hit a three-run homer in the sixth inning, a young boy who caught the ball appeared on camera looking confused. The third baseman was generally avoided by Boston's pitching staff until being moved to the leadoff spot on Wednesday, and the law of averages dictated that he was due after an 0-for-4 start. "The last three times they were AL champions, they went on to win the World Series (2004, 2007, 2013)". Marwin Gonzalez homered off reliever Matt Barnes to bring the Astros within 4-1.

It was 1-0 in the Boston sixth when Mitch Moreland doubled on a ball that left fielder Tony Kemp nearly caught at the wall.
