Behind the Numbers in Waltz – 6:03 p.m.

With the exception of his four strikes, all of Valdes’ outs have come to the ground. The Red Sox have not found him yet.

An interesting approach from the sale – 5:53 pm

Interesting note: The sale hit Altuva with a crack shot.

Sail threw seven sliders in those nine pitch-bats, five of which were straight.

Sox can’t solve Waltz’s drowning – 5:45 p.m.

Valdes’ s drowning is his pet pitch, so far the Red Sox have not been able to solve it or him.

He triggered three ground outs and broke two batsmen in two innings – one against Swarovski, then the Towers. He sinks and plays his curling ball, and chases Martinez for that strike three and freezes Hunter Renfro.

What does Chris Cell need from Socks offense – 5:35 p.m.

Render Sox scored just two runs from the first inning last night, while Sander Bogarts scored two. Individual homes will not hurt you. Sales responded well in that inning following Alvarez’s solo pop. Now it is a crime to take some relaxation.

Astros strike again – 5:25 p.m.

It’s not the worst pitch of sales, it’s the quality oscillation of a powerful hitter on the Jordan Alvarez. This is the second homer of the postseason. He won today with .380 slugging percent in .320 playoffs.

What the Red Sox offense should do differently – 5:19 p.m.

Crime at key moments should be very effective. They were 9-0 with the runners in the scoring, leaving 11 runners in the basement.

Red Socks: Hernandez CF, Swarovski 1B, Bogarts SS, Thevers 3B, Martinez DH, Renfro RF, Vertugo LF, Arroyo 2B, Vasquez C

How was the first sale – 5:17 p.m.

The sale requires nine pitches, from which it can exit at 97 mph. His last start has not changed for him, but it looks like he has it for now. Before he triggered a groundout, Breckman checked his change.

What should we expect from Chris Sale? – 5:05 p.m.

Old sales are always a plus, but before injury happens, sales at playoffs are not good. He released 5.76 ERA in the playoffs in seven games earlier this year, four of which started. You have to face the sales storm and try not to open the game too soon.

How the Astros were against Chris Cell – 5:00 p.m.

Sale Against Astros: Jose Altuway 8-24, Michael Brandley 8-41, Alex Breckmann 1-6, Carlos Correa 4-19, Aletimis Theos 1-3, Yuli Curiel 3-8, Martin Maldonado 2-11

What’s a good thing the Red Socks have been picking up since last night? 4:55 p.m.

The team used Carrot Whitlock for two innings, but Tanner was away from the hook, calling him to eat some innings if he struggled with sales.

The Socks lost their momentum. Can they recover? – 4:45 p.m.

Motivation at baseball is just as good as the next day’s starter and Chris Sale is not so good, so you can tell there’s motivation on the side of the Astros – especially how they spun the bats in that ninth inning.

Sales in Game 1 lasted 2 innings and manager Alex Cora surrendered a run before pulling the plug. On the other hand, the Red Sox will see framber Valdez, who took part in his trouble at the start of his Game 1. Waltz also went in the 2nd inning, conceding three runs.

Rows – 4:25 p.m.

Astros: Altuve 2B, Brantley LF, Bregman 3B, Alvarez DH, Correa SS, Tucker RF, Gurriel 1B, Siri CF, Maldonado C.

Pitch: LHP Framber Waltz (11-6, 3.14 ERA)

Red Socks: Hernandez CF, Swarovski 1B, Bogarts SS, Thevers 3B, Martinez DH, Renfro RF, Vertugo LF, Arroyo 2B, Vasquez C

Pitch: LHP Chris Sales (5-1, 3.16 ERA)

Last night – 4:20 p.m.

Yes, the referee injured the Red Sox at the loss of Game 4. But there are a lot of accusations on their plate. Chad Finn enters.

A lucky souvenir – 4:05 p.m.

At least one person had a good time near Fenway last night. An Allston man was outside the park when Sander Bogarts started a house on the Glander Monster seats. He looked at it before taking the ball around Lansdowne Street.

“I said,‘ Some guys get lucky, ’Espinal said, before describing exactly how that guy turned out to be him. “It struck under a gate sign across the street in Lansdowne Street and went back. It turned very high in the back of the Green Monster. I had a chance to catch it.

Today’s weather report – 3:55 p.m.

It warms up in the Boston area as the week continues. It will be around 65 degrees on the first pitch, then expected to be at least in the 50s.
