The Astros won Game 1, before the Red Sox took over, winning one game in Boston before taking all three games in Houston to reach the World Series for the first time since 2013. "There's a lot of guys in here probably playing in worse situations than I (am)". The Red Sox didn't match up with either team during interleague play this season and will be bidding for their fourth championship of this century. They bested Astros ace Justin Verlander (1-1) to secure their first AL pennant in five years, setting a date opposite either the Los Angeles Dodgers or Milwaukee Brewers in the World Series starting next Tuesday in Boston.

David Price saw the big picture when he came to Boston prior to the 2016 season. The left-hander, who has had a rough time in Boston since signing a $217 million contract before the 2016 season, entered 0-9 with a 6.16 ERA in 11 career postseason starts. Sale said he threw a bullpen session Saturday and acknowledged there's a small luxury in banking "a couple more throwing days", too.

"Since Day One, we knew we had something special".

"We're going to figure all that stuff out", he said.

"I know when that time comes that's a question I have to answer, whether it's spring training or September 1 or before a start", Price said.

But amazingly, things clicked against the New York Yankees in the division series, and then they clicked even more so against the Houston Astros in the ALCS, and now the Red Sox are heading to the World Series. The Red Sox required only one chance to close out the best-of-7 encounter, grinding their way to a 4-1 victory. "I feel fine though, back to normal, should be ready to go".

Man Utd legend Paul Scholes hits out at Mourinho, Pogba and Sanchez
I'm not sure if he works hard enough but he's still a young man who has done well and scored a lot of goals. Merson added: "If United do lose, the pressure will nearly certainly crank up again on Jose Mourinho ".


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. Ian Kinsler singled before Devers homered into the front row of the short porch in left.
