On Sunday at Fenway Park, the Boston Red Sox staved off elimination by beating the Houston Astros 10-3 and will play Game 4 of the best of five American League Division Series Monday afternoon in Boston. Benintendi walloped a go-ahead two-run home Monday to turn a 2-1 Astros lead into a 3-2 Red Sox lead.
David Price has found redemption for a disappointing 2017 season in the bullpen.
Price entered the game after another former Tiger, Doug Fister, struggled in his first start of the postseason.
Bogaerts had been 0-for-14 through the first three games before the homer. Red Sox bench coach Gary DiSarcina took the reins in Farrell's absence. Pedroia immediately turned to argue the call with Wegner before Farrell rushed out of the dugout to argue on behalf of the Sox' longest-tenured player.
Hanley Ramirez went four-for-four with three runs-batted-in and Sand Leon drive in another run for the Red Sox.
It was the first postseason win for Boston since the 2013 World Series Game 6, after a year ago being swept by Cleveland.
