Astros Suspected of Cheating In ALCS, ALDS


In the ninth inning of Wednesday night's epic ALCS Game 4 between the Red Sox and Astros, Castiglione was taken aback by Boston left fielder Andrew Benintendi's game-saving, game-ending catch.

The two teams went back and forth throughout the game, with Boston taking an early 3-1 lead before a George Springer blast and Josh Reddick single tied it up in the third.

Major League Baseball confirmed in a statement it was also aware of a report by Metro Boston that a man claiming to be an Astros employee was removed from a credentialed area near the Boston Red Sox dugout during the ALCS opener at Fenway Park.

Houston Astros manager AJ Hinch speaks during a news conference on Monday, Oct. 15, 2018. After being asked about the man claiming to be an Astros' employee and the warning given to the Red Sox, an Indians spokesman said via email on Tuesday, "We are not going to comment on this situation". According to the report, the Cleveland Indians spotted the same man - later identified by Yahoo Sports as Kyle McLaughlin, whose position with the Astros was unknown - in a similar spot doing similar things during the AL Division Series at Cleveland's Progressive Field.

The Red Sox had been warned before their series-opening game to look out for the man, the AP was told by the people.

Sale will pitch in Game 6 at the earliest.

The utilization of technology in sign-stealing efforts isn't likely to go away, and it'll continue to force teams and players into more rigorous efforts to protect signs. "I'm anxious about the game".

Sign-stealing has been an accepted part of baseball culture for decades, but technological advances have blurred the line between gamesmanship and cheating. And the Red Sox counter with David Price, who will be pitching on three days' rest because of Chris Sale's illness.
