Astros possibly caught cheating in ALCS Game 1

The Red Sox said: "It is an Major League Baseball matter, so no one from the Red Sox would be commenting".

Red Sox first baseman Steve Pearce flipped head over heels into the Astros dugout chasing a foul ball hit by Reddick in the seventh. The Yankees, too, were also fined for violating a rule pertaining to the use of the dugout phone, and there have been similar reports that other teams believe the Yankees use the YES Network to steal signs from opponents. Doing such things without technology is surely done by every team in some way, as signs aren't changed often enough and pitchers tip their pitches at times.

The MLB has cleared the Astros of any wrongdoing in regards to their alleged sign stealing, but the dust clearly hasn't settled. And according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo!

Price needs to shake off the nerves and pitch the game of his life, hopefully getting the monkey off his back and sending his team to the World Series. The Red Sox say Sale is still weak from the stomach illness that landed him at Massachusetts General Hospital earlier in the week.

The Red Sox Game 3 win in Houston lasted almost four hours, which is long for a baseball game, although postseason contests are often so lengthy.
