LEADING OFF: Red Sox-Yankees all even, Astros try for sweep

Oh, he heard the boos. Porcello could be the only Red Sox pitcher unavailable, as Boston will be loathe to enter a Game 4 with its season on the line in a ballpark where it posted just a 3-6 mark in nine games this season.
Last week before the AL wild card game against the A's, Boone spoke eloquently - nearly monologuing - about his fascination in watching the crowd in the Bronx bring their best throughout last October.
With the Yankees desperate for a win, Price absolutely needed to bring his best against a team that has established a habit of getting the best of him. Price now has 5.28 ERA in 75 career postseason innings and his teams are 0-10 in his 10 starts.
That is one of the reasons there wasn't 100 percent confidence in a 108-win team heading into the 2018 Major League Baseball playoffs.
But because this is Boston, and because memories are long here, and because there is a history to account for, you can be assured that all anyone was talking about, as 39,151 fans trudged out of Fenway Park, tuned into sports-talk radio and bellied up to the corner bar, was the unimaginable, uncanny and unacceptable futility - not only Saturday night, but seemingly any time he climbs a mound as a starting pitcher with the stakes at their highest - of left-handed pitcher David Price.
He will have another chance to defeat those demons. "Gary is one of the most talented players in the league, and even though he had a rough year, he's the kind of the guy that can get hot with the best of them and put a team on his back".
Can he get it done? He said it. He wants to win a World Series. "I'm excited. This is what we play for coming out of spring training".
That may involve working out of the bullpen. After an 0-for-4 performance with two Ks in Game 6, Boone spent most of Game 7 watching from the bench.
Los Angeles was denied its second straight sweep in the NLDS, having chased Arizona previous year. Price told Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com and other reporters he'd be ready to pitch again as early as Game 3 on Monday, and he also declared (via Mastrodonato) that he's "looking forward to winning games in October as a starter". The flawless way to do that is help this team stay in the series and eventually pitch the game of his life in a Game 5 scenario in front of that same crowd that booed him into the October night.
Then there's the question of what happens if the Red Sox win game three.
Pompeo and Kim met privately in Pyongyang for two hours and then at a 90-minute luncheon hosted by the North Korean leader. Pompeo will also visit Beijing on Monday as he concludes his four-nation visit to the region.
