    In a wild game that took 4 hours and 33 minutes the Red Sox improved to 4-0 on the road in the playoffs with an 8-6 victory over the Astros.The Red Sox have outscored opponents 36-12 on the road this postseason, and are now just one win away from the World Series.

    The Red Sox got things rolling early in the first with a Devers two RBI single giving the Red Sox a 2-0 lead for a third straight game.

    The Astros immediatley answered back in the bottom of the first with what looked like a two run home run into right by Jose Altuve. However after review it was determined that Mookie Betts had his glove interfered with by a fan and Altuve was ruled out.

    From there it was a back and forth affair with the Red Sox finding most of their success with two outs.

    Alex Cora made a strange decision in the 8th by going with Craig Kimbrel for a six out save. Prior to this game Kinbrel had never completed a save for more than 4 outs in his career.

    Red Sox starter Rick Porcello allowed seven hits and four runs over four innings. Houston starter Charlie Morton gave up three hits, three runs, and two walks in just 2 ⅓ innings.
