Houston – Songs continue to collect Enrique Hernandez Coach Alex Cora is aiming to capitalize on them more after the Boston Red Sox lost 5-4 to the Houston Astros on Friday night.
Hernandez tallied and shined in Game 2 of the championship series to reach five in the post-season, equalizing Todd Walker (2003) and David Ortiz, who did so twice (2004 and 2013) for the lead.
The Puerto Rican quarterback from Boston reached nine additional bases to tie with Ortiz himself (2004 and 2007), Mike Lowell (2007) and Kevin Yukilis (2007) for most of Boston in the same playoffs.
It’s great,” Hernandez said. “It’s October and these games are usually a lot of fun. Lots of adrenaline and lots of electricity in the crowd. These games are so much fun and the fact that I’m playing really well adds to that a bit.”
This Saturday, Hernandez moved from first to second in the batting standings with Kyle Schwarber Before him, after hitting four hits, including two of his singles teammates, in Game 1 of the AL Championship Series to raise the current post-season average to 0.500 before Game 2 started.
In his previous four matches, Hernandez has racked up 13 hits, including eight extra bases, with eight RBIs.
Alex Verdugo He went to 5th place instead of 7th and JD Martinez Behind him in sixth place. From Friday’s lineup, the receiver left for Saturday Christian Vasquez by Kevin Blawicki And the second rule Christian Arroyo He hit last against the Astros on Saturday.
“We put this squad up out of necessity,” Cora said. “JD got hurt on the last day of the season, so we had to figure out how to protect Ravi (Rafael Davers) against the New York Yankees, and the only way was to put Kyle first; Kiki second and Ravi third. And behind him was Xander and Alex fifth”…
McCullers still aspires to a world series
Still Lance McCullers Jr. He hopes to return to the Astros in this post-season, if they advance to the World Championship, despite a right forearm injury that knocked him out of the MLS Championship series.
He considered that perhaps playing with less comfort in his most recent start was one of the factors that caused his injury.
“I think from the start I didn’t feel 100 percent,” he admitted. “But I felt comfortable enough to open it. He had good speed, everything is good. But in the fourth, when I was facing (Gavin) leaves when I started to feel uncomfortable because he grabbed the ball to throw a curveball and we ended up sliding. There I felt my forearm pull.”
The primary bowler said he’s felt better in the past two days, thanks to the break, and that they will be assessing his improvement over the next week.
“It’s been two very tough days, but I know I can help this team in so many more ways than just putting in performances,” he said on Saturday. “I can help the players with reports from the opposing hitters, watch the match and try to give advice. I want to be with them.”
Boston makes history of the Grand Slam
The Red Sox became the first team to collide with two major championships in the same post-season game, taking them out with a full house in the first and second rounds of a second series match against the Astros.
Martinez hit first to put the Red Sox 4-0 against the start Luis Garcia, who also got Rafael Devers only once later.
Garcia couldn’t make it out in the first half and came out with only one lap of action, taking just two hits, two grand slams, and five winning runs; He walked away three and hit two for 45.00 ERA in the current postseason.
