ALCS: Bradley Jr. powers Red Sox to 2-1 series lead

Red Sox bullpen exceeding expectation thanks to shrewd moves from Alex Cora

"In the third inning of the first game of the series, security removed a man claiming to be an Astros employee from the media-credentialed area next to the Boston Red Sox dugout, according to multiple security sources who were on the scene at the time of the incident". The man, who did not have a credential, had a small camera and was texting frequently, per the report.

Down 2-1 in the best-of-seven American League Championship Series, the Houston Astros have been dealt another blow - a complaint filed to Major League Baseball alleging a man associated with the Astros surreptitiously tried filming the Indians' dugout during a playoff game last week.

A man claiming to be an Astros employee was reportedly removed from the media-credentialed area next to the Red Sox dugout.

There was no indication of any suspicious activity during Game 3 in Houston on Tuesday night, but the Red Sox were careful to change their pitch-calling signs throughout the night - something Manager Alex Cora said is fairly standard for the Red Sox. Remember that previous year, the Yankees and Red Sox ended up in a dispute adjudicated by the Commissioner's Office over Boston's use of Apple watches in the dugout (which is against Major League Baseball rules) and the Yanks fear they were being used to real-time steal signs.

The Red Sox closed it out from there to take Game 3 by an 8-2 score and take a 2-1 lead in the ALCS. "I'm anxious about the game".

While it's yet to be proven if the Astros were doing anything illegal, the two incidents have raised further questions about the use of electronic equipment during games and whether Houston has been cheating.

'Somebody mentioned (it) to me right now.

When asked if he thought there was anything going on in those first two games at Fenway Park against his old club, Cora responded, "No, I don't".

"I really wanted him to get one more at-bat against Dallas, because that's why he was in the lineup", Cora said. The manager noted he had just recently heard the news, but maintained the matter is an issue for the league office. He did say the matter was resolved early in Game 1 and that it had no impact on the Red Sox losing 7-2.

All of the suspicion has added to the length of each game, as both teams' catchers have routinely walked to the mound to confer with their pitchers, usually while covering their mouths with their gloves.

However, that doesn't mean the Red Sox aren't taking precautions to ensure their signs stay safe.
