In defense of Price starting Game 2 against Houston, he made two appearances against the Astros last October, going 6.2 innings of shutout ball out of the bullpen.

The Red Sox hold homefield advantage over the Astros. Game 1 of the ALCS against Houston is set for Saturday night at Fenway Park. And they'll need to get through the other two to reach the World Series. Not even a shaky ninth from Craig Kimbrel - another key piece brought in via trade by Dombrowski - could stop Boston from silencing the Yankees and the almost 50,000 fans on hand.

"You never want to give a game back and go to a Game 5, so it's great that we could do it tonight", said Kimbrel, who got his second save of the series.

It was a measure of validation for both Henry and Dombrowski, and in Cora they've found a presence in the dugout who can match their boldness. This time it was Rick Porcello, who spun five innings of one-run ball, four-hit ball. NY found itself in a 4-0 hole during a win-or-go-home Game 4 in Yankee Stadium, and despite coming close to a dramatic ninth inning comeback, the Red Sox sealed their ALDS tilt with a 4-3 victory.

Stanton, New York's big acquisition last offseason, was 4 for 18 (.222) with no RBIs.

Sabathia escaped a bases-loaded jam in the first when Kinsler hit an inning-ending flyout to Gardner in front of the left-field wall.

More CC Sabathia on Angel Hernandez: "He shouldn't be anywhere near these playoff games".

Umpire Angel Hernandez was a major storyline for all the wrong reasons in Game 3, as three of his calls at first base were overturned by replay reviews. Major League Baseball declined comment, spokesman Mike Teevan said.
