ALCS Game Six, 2021

Red Sox at Astros, 5:08 PM PDT, TV: FS1

The visiting Red Sox need to win today to stay alive. They’ll give the ball to RHP Nathan Eovaldi (postseason 2-1, 5.51 ERA) and ask him to keep the Astros down. The Astros ask RHP Luis Garcia (postseason 0-1, 24.55 ERA) to end the Series right now.

Today in baseball history John Updike published his ode to Ted Williams as “The Kid” played his final game at Fenway Park in 1960, in 1975 the Reds beat the Red Sox in a World Series filled with reversals, home runs, and foul balls waved fair, Albert Pujols homered three times in Game Three of the 2011 World Series, and in 2016 the Cubs beat the Dodgers in Game Six of the NLCS to win their first pennant in 71 years.

  1. Walker going to take the mound. Guess he wants to make up for last start, which was on extra rest.

      • Already had TJ, so he has a bionic elbow. A determined young man. Hope he keeps his cool, if put under pressure. During regular season he was one of the best in getting out of such situations.

  2. Quique’s first-inning misplay – a difficult chance, in fairness – has put the Sawx done 1-0.
