Down 0-1 in the series, the Red Sox will come back with David Price for Game 2 Sunday night.
BOSTON (AP) - With temperatures dipping into the 40s, numbing their fingertips as they tried to grip the baseball, Justin Verlander and Chris Sale both struggled to get the ball over the plate.
The Red Sox managed just three hits with their ace on the mound in (realistically) a must-win Game 1. If Verlander didn't walk three straight hitters and uncork a wild pitch in the fifth inning, the Sox were staring at a shutout. And I did. It's kind of like embarrassing that it happens in the playoffs. But sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do and you've got to defend your players.
Josh Reddick and Yuli Gurriel added insurance in the ninth with home runs off Brandon Workman.

Many in Boston's vociferous media chattering class called for Price to be pulled from the rotation and wondered why a guy with such a bummer of a playoff history was given the start in the first place. The right-hander struck out 12 over seven innings in a 3-1 win Game 2 win against Cleveland in the Division Series. You know they'll put it in play so you try to get a single instead of a double, or try to get a weak double instead of a homer. "I just went out there and lost it for a little bit".
Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora was ejected for arguing with home plate umpire James Hoye during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series. Verlander walked a third batter in a row, forcing in a run. Houston turned the pressure up in the second, loading the bases on a pair of walks and a hit by pitch with two outs. He can beat you in so many different ways. Sure, the Red Sox lead man only allowed one hit in his four innings of work, but the pitch count of 86 told the true story.
Benintendi was less philosophical.
With Jake Marisnick attempting to steal second base in the top of the eighth inning, Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez fired a throw that tailed away from second baseman Brock Holt and directly into the right shoulder of frequently reviled umpire Joe West.
Bench coach Ron Roenicke assumed managerial duties for the sixth inning.
