      American League Championship Series at Fenway Park with ace Chris Sale on the mound.However , that assessment turned out to be wrong, as the Red Sox have rebounded with two consecutive wins, including an 8-2 triumph in Game 3 in Houston. Jackie Bradley Jr., who had a bases-loaded double in Game 2 to key that victory, delivered a crushing blow when he hit a grand slam in the eighth inning off Houston closer Roberto Osuna.That blow took the air out of Minute Maid Park and allowed the visitors to breathe easier as they closed out the game without facing any troublesome situations.”I was looking for a fastball from Osuna,” Bradley told TBS’ Lauren Shehadi. “I got a pitch I could handle and I put a good swing on it. Our guys did a great job that inning with hits by Bogey (Xander Bogaerts and (Rafael) Devers and a couple of hit batters, and that set up the whole thing.” ScheduleGame 1: Astros 7,Red Sox 2Game 2: Red Sox 7, Astros 5Game 3: Red Sox 8, Astros 2; Red Sox lead, 2-1Game 4: Red Sox at Astros; Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 8:39p.m. ET on TBSGame 5: Red Sox at Astros; Thursday Bo Jackson Jersey , Oct. 18 at 8:09p.m. ET on TBS*Game 6: Astros at Red Sox; Saturday, Oct. 20 at 5:09p.m. ET on TBS*Game 7: Astros at Red Sox; Sunday, Oct. 21 at 7:39p.m. ET on TBS*if necessaryBoston Globe Sports BGlobeSportsNew from nickcafardo: What鈥檚 striking about Nathan Eovaldi is he鈥檚 truly calm on the mound. And he was cool for a gusty six innings in Game 3.quot;I was in some tough situations but I was able to get out of them. I try not to put added pressure on myself.quot;HugmteZtVf PAPeAiduubNathan Eovaldi and Dallas Keuchel both pitched impressively after rough starts. The Red Sox scored two runs in the top of the first inning, but Keuchel settled down after that and did not allow any more runs in his five innings.Eovaldi allowed one run in the bottom of the first and another in the fifth, but after Steve Pearce untied the game with a home run in the top of the sixth, Eovaldi shut the Astros down in the sixth.Relievers Ryan Brasier, Matt Barnes, Joe Kelly and Eduardo Rodriguez blanked the Astros in the final three innings.The Red Sox will try to push their advantage to 3-1 when they send Rick Porcello to the mound in Game 4. The Astros will counter with Charlie Morton.Porcello pitched the eighth inning in Game 2, helping to get to closer Craig Kimbrel, and Porcello also pitched effectively against the New York Yankees in the American League Division Series.Morton has not pitched to this point in the postseason, but he was 15-3 in the regular season with a 3.13 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP.The Astros are minus-140 favorites (bet $140 to win $100) to win Game 4 and square the series, while the Red Sox are plus-120 Paulo Orlando Jersey , per OddsShark.Charlie Morton will try to even the ALCS in Game 4 for the Astros.Patrick Semansky/Associated Press PredictionMorton is an excellent pitcher who came through in key situations in last year’s postseason. However, he has not pitched since Sept. 30.Porcello has excelled as a starter and a reliever in two different series, and he should be prepared to start.Morton must get through the first couple of innings without giving up more than a run or two. That may be difficult, and the Astros can no longer be overly confident about their bullpen.There were a lot of questions about the Red Sox’s strength in that area going into the ALCS. Boston’s relievers have answered several key questions to this point, but closer Craig Kimbrel appears to have issues.He is their best reliever, but he has been shaky to this point.However, Porcello has been on his game and should be again. Boston takes a tight game and takes a 3-1 lead in the series. SEATTLE (AP) — Ryan Borucki was tiring as he prepared to enter the eighth inning for the first time in his major league career. Fortunately, the Blue Jays‘ rookie left-hander had the boisterous assistance of a crowd packed with Canadians vacationing a bit south of the border in Seattle.The 24-year-old starter, pitching in his seventh game, breezed through a perfect eighth to put a signature on his first big league victory as Toronto beat a suddenly reeling Mariners team, 7-2 on Friday night. He walked off the mound to a standing ovation from what seemed like a rare home crowd on the road.“I’m on cloud nine right now,” said Borucki (1-2) , who gave up one run and four hits in eight innings, striking out two without issuing a walk. “It was definitely worth the wait. These fans here, I was just riding on those fans. They were keeping me in it. . It was a lot of fun.”Toronto got a well-balanced attack including home runs from Russell Martin and Devon Travis and added three insurance runs in the ninth.The Blue Jays supported Borucki right away. Randal Grichuk led off the game with a double down the first-base line against Seattle starter Marco Gonzales and Travis singled him in. Toronto extended its lead to 2-0 in the fourth inning when Martin hit a solo homer to left-center field.The Mariners got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the fourth on Kyle Seager’s RBI single, but the Blue Jays pulled away in the top of the fifth when Grichuk reached on a one-out infield single and Travis hit a two-run homer off the scoreboard beyond the left-field wall. Toronto added three in the ninth off Mariners reliever Chasen Bradford.Meanwhile, Borucki shined, getting quick outs via ground balls, spotting his fastball in the 92-93 mph range, and making the Mariners hitters’ aggressiveness work against them.“He looked composed, in control and just pitched his game,” Martin said. “He’s good. He’s got what it takes and he’s not afraid out there. It’s just nice to see somebody out there that just attacks the zone and goes right after guys.”The Mariners have lost four consecutive games and are looking to break out of a slump that saw them score the fewest runs in MLB in the month of July and only eight in three games so far in August.“It’s kind of the same old tune here offensively,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said. “It will turn, I know it will Frank White Jersey , our guys know it will, but it is really frustrating right now. Everybody’s grinding away trying to figure out a way to get out of this thing.”Toronto reliever Ken Giles, acquired in a deadline trade with the Houston Astros, made his Blue Jays debut in the ninth and gave up a run on a two-out single by Ryon Healy. The reliever struck out three.TRAINER’S ROOMBlue Jays: CF Kevin Pillar returned from the disabled list (sprained right sternoclavicular joint) without having played in any minor league rehab games and batted ninth. The Blue Jays optioned RHP Brandon Cumpton to Triple-A Buffalo to make room for Pillar on the active roster. … The Blue Jays announced that RHP Oliver Drake was claimed off waivers by the Minnesota Twins.Mariners: 2B Dee Gordon was back in the lineup leading off and at his position. Gordon left Thursday night’s game in the ninth inning after rolling his right ankle while landing to catch a throw from third baseman Seager. “He didn’t swell up at all,” Servais said. “He feels pretty good today.” … Servais said reliever Juan Nicasio was unavailable Friday because of right knee soreness that the right-hander experienced in May. Nicasio was slated to get the knee checked out by a team doctor.UP NEXTBlue Jays: RHP Marco Estrada (4-8, 4.90) gets the ball for Toronto on Saturday night. Estrada returned from the 10-day disabled list in his last start July 30 and gave up four runs and five hits in four innings in a loss at Oakland.Mariners: LHP James Paxton (9-4, 3.49), a native of British Columbia, Canada, faces the Blue Jays for the first time since pitching a no-hitter in a 5-0 victory over the Blue Jays on May 8 in Toronto.
