Well Red Sox fans, one win stands between your Red Sox and a date in the 2018 World Series. Jackie Bradley and a controversial fan interference call combined to lead the Red Sox to an 8 – 6 win in game 4 of the 2018 American League Championship Series.
In the very first inning with Boston leading 2 – 0, Houston star second baseman Jose Altuve launched what looked to be a game tying two run home run off of Rick Procello. As the ball headed to the rightfield stands, an excited Astros fan reached up for the potential souvenir. At the same time Mookie Betts leaped in an attempt to make a great play. Well that is where it became controversial. Betts the ball and the fan all came together and interference was called resulting in not a home run. but a long fly out.
Still the game moved on back and forth, until once again, Red Sox star of the week Jackie Bradley Jr. stepped to the plate with one on and two out in the bottom of the 5th. Bradley once again came through, depositing a Josh James pitch deep into the rightfield stands to give the Red Sox a lead they never relinguished.
The Red Sox tacked on a run in the seventh and another in the eighth inning and never relinguished the lead.
Now the Red Sox are in position to close out the Houston Astros as early as tonight in game 5 once again at Minute Maid Park in Houston.
