The Boston Red Sox are going to the World Series for the first time since 2013 and one unlikely hero powered them to glory. He retired the last seven hitters in order, fanning Jose Altuve on the very changeup that served as Price's calling card in front of 43,210 fans.

According to the Patriots head coach, the Red Sox don't need any help.

"We encouraged him and told him, 'No, it was just a missed call, '" Brown said. Boston is a ideal 5-0 in road games this postseason, with two wins in NY in the ALDS and three in Houston in the ALCS.

But Price always insisted that he wanted to take the ball again, that his next start would be the one where he finally figured it out.

Coming into Thursday's game Price had a career 6-2 record with a 2.94 ERA against the Astros.

Martinez should have been retired on a strikeout looking for the second out of the inning.

Given the chance, Red Sox left-hander David Price wasn't going alone to a news conference Thursday after Game 5 of the American League Championship Series. "I wish you guys knew what he had to go through to play every day and get himself prepared and then contribute and do well".

The Houston Astros fan now rooting hardest for his team to make the World Series? Before his homer run in Game 5, Martinez had just one postseason home run. Houston was shut out five times in Verlander's starts on its home field in 2018.

She and her mother, Susan Brown, have had season tickets for the past two years and attended Game 4 on Wednesday night.

The home run chased Houston starter Justin Verlander, one of the best pitchers in baseball, and effectively ended the Astros' hopes of winning back-to-back World Series.

Verlander is as close to flawless as it gets in the postseason, especially in elimination games, but he nearly had to be ideal for the Astros to win at home this season and he simply wasn't Thursday. "It was good to see him back on the mound and pushing himself to be available, but I think it is too soon to talk about roster decisions". This is nearly always true. Houston won the 2017 World Series but fell just short this season. That has been true for eight of the last 11 as well.

After dropping the opener at home, the Red Sox took four straight - including three in a row at Minute Maid Park to improve to 5-0 on the road in these playoffs. It's plain and simple.
