ALDS Game 1: Jose Altuve blasts three homers against Red Sox

FAQ The Indians' thought process on selecting their ALDS roster and playoff rotation order

Maddox failed to do so, with Altuve's solo shot giving Houston an 8-2 lead in the seventh inning.

"As soon as I cross the white line, I feel the same size as everyone else", Altuve said. Pomeranz only has postseason experience from past year, where he posted an ERA of almost 5 in two games against Cleveland. Joining Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, George Brett and Albert Pujols on the list of those with three-homer games in the postseason? He would eventually allow seven runs over five innings as the Red Sox lost the only game of the series in which they seem to have the pitching advantage.

With 168 home runs during the regular season, Boston finished 27 out of 30 Major League teams, 40 less than the 2016 squad.

I expect this series to be extremely competitive one.

Blade Runner 2049 Movie Review
Instead, we're treated to a variety of compelling ideas, most of which can't be written about without spoiling the movie. Maybe " Blade Runner " wore its complexities on its sleeve, too.

And his thoughts after the third?

"I definitely think there is some value in it", Verlander said of his postseason experience - including two starts in the 2006 World Series. Altuve followed it with a home run of his own to left-center. And as he tipped his hat to the crowd, one fan near the dugout held a sign that proclaimed in blue block letters: "That Kid Can Hit". Between Games 2 and 5 of that ALDS, he went 0-for-17 with a walk.

Major League Baseball can allow a replacement for an injured player during the postseason.

"First off", the ace pitcher said, "how good is Jose Altuve?".

The city also would encourage the local Economic Development Board to offer Amazon a tax freeze for up to 30 years. On Monday, the city council chose to de-annex 345 acres of land if they are chosen for the project site.

Altuve became the first Astros player ever with a three-homer game in the playoffs and the first since Carlos Lee in 2007 to homer three times in any game. With that being said if this series were to come to a game 5, it wouldn't be to wild to think about pitching Sale or Pomeranz on short rest in what would obviously be a pivotal game 5.

The crowd of 43,402, which included Hall of Famers Nolan Ryan, Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio, waved bright orange towels as Altuve trotted around the bases. Not many teams get to someone as good as Boston's Chris Sale, but the Astros did early and often as they piled on the runs. Meanwhile, Robby Scott and Heath Hembree struggle to keep the Astros hitters off base, and a run scores. The Sox are always the better team on the field when Sale pitches. He was carried off the field by Manager John Farrell and the trainer, Masai Takahashi.

Sale, who enters this game on extra rest after last pitching on September 26, was asked about the possibility of pitching on three days' rest. He suffered through back-to-back-to-back 100-loss seasons with the Astros, from 2011-13, and endured the disappointments of losing to the Kansas City Royals in the 2015 ALCS and missing the playoffs last season. He also added it was a "bad time to suck". "They fought back and they fought back hard and I gave it right back to them". The team was No. 1 with 896 runs scored, 854 RBI, .823 OPS, .282 team batting average, .346 on-base percentage, .478 slugging percentage, and 1,581 hits. While his fastball, especially his two-seam fastball, had a really nice tail to it last season, it has been flat in 2017. Eduardo Nunez acquired midseason by the Red Sox is versatile as he can play nearly anywhere in the infield, but he too has been nagged by a sprained right knee ligament.

Nunez aggravated a preexisting right knee injury that had limited him to two-at bats in the final two weeks of the regular season.
