Congrats to the Boston Reds Sox. Their 4-1 win over the host Houston Astros on Saturday put them back into the World Series. Ian Kinsler was 2-for-4 as the starting second baseman, including a double and a run scored. Alex Bregman, once again at the top of the Astros’ lineup, was once again hitless, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.

Between the two MOTs, Bregman giveth…

And Bregman taketh away…

Now Boston has to await the winner of the N.L. Championship Series, with the Milwaukee Brewers (Ryan Braun) trailing the Los Angeles Dodgers (Joc Pederson) three games to two. That could be over tonight.
