Red Sox unsure of Sale's availability

The Boston Red Sox were still unsure Tuesday when Chris Sale would be available to pitch again, but the lefty ace was back with the team for Game 3 of the AL Championship Series.

Game 3 is Tuesday in Houston, followed by two more at Minute Maid Park and a chance for the defending World Series champions to clinch a second straight AL pennant at home. "Let's win this one today, however we get 27 outs and we go to tomorrow and see where we at and we'll decide then". He found a few things that he really liked about his swing. "He's staying through it". A night after Betts rolled over a groundball to kill a bases-loaded rally, he laced two doubles into centerfield, one that drove in a run and one that eventually scored one.

The illness was announced by the team during Game 2 on Sunday night, which the Red Sox won to even the series.

Houston's George Springer extended his postseason hitting streak to 11 games with two hits, including a two-run double. He also went 2 for 3 with a walk and two runs. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that was the most consecutive losses for a pitcher's team to start a postseason career in major league history.

Sale allowed just one hit in four innings against the Astros in Saturday's Game 1 at Fenway, but walked four batters, saw his velocity uncharacteristically low for much of the outing and struggled with his command - especiall with his tradmark slider.

"I still have a job to do", said Eovaldi, who gave Boston seven innings of one-run ball in ALDS Game 3 last week against the Yankees. "That's what we've done all year". "We feel that he was getting close to start swinging the bat well". "So that was big".

United Kingdom companies can't afford to ignore mental health issues
As the World Health Organisation says, "there is no health without mental health " - it is just as fundamental to our wellbeing as any physical illness.

The Red Sox led 5-4 when Price was lifted with two outs in the fifth inning. Ryan Brasier pitched a scoreless inning and erstwhile starter Rick Porcello set the Astros down 1-2-3 in the eighth.

Devers then made two great plays at third, including a do-or-die play to nail Jose Altuve on the run at first base.

Cole allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits in six innings. "Nothing serious. He was going to go through a battery of tests and see what was going on", Cora said. "The line's going to (look) a little bit tougher on him than he pitched". Xander Bogaerts singled up the middle and Steve Pearce ripped a liner to deep left that sent Marwin Gonzalez crashing into the scoreboard. Bradley sliced an inside fastball down the line in left, with Gonzalez unable to play the carom and all three runners coming around to erase a 4-2 deficit. Sale started the series opener but missed Game 2 and didn't travel with the team after being hospitalized for a stomach illness.

"He's one of the most dynamic hitters in baseball", Hinch said.

"The ball, the wall, he's back-pedaling". He banged his back, upper back and neck. You don't want to get too high, too low, whatever it is. "But it's a well-placed hit".

"It's pretty cool", Bradley said of the lucky bounces.
