League Championship Series - Houston Astros v Boston Red Sox - Game One Photo by Elsa/Getty Images

In order to beat this Astros team in a seven-game series, the Red Sox are going to need something close to perfection. That’s....not what they got on Saturday. (Kevin McNamara; Providence Journal)

The pitching was horrible with its historic walk numbers, but really the Red Sox lost that Game One because of their lack of offense. (Chad Finn; Boston Globe)

Alex Cora discussed his ejection with the media after the game. (Nicole Yang;

He also explained the strange and, frankly, wrong decision to go with Brandon Workman rather than Craig Kimbrel in the ninth. (Christopher Smith; Masslive)

Meanwhile, the Astros got a terrific night on both sides from Alex Bregman. Jason Mastrodonato writes that the Red Sox need one of their stars to match Bregman. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald)

Speaking of Bregman, he seemed to have a couple of testy moments with the Red Sox, including one with Joe Kelly. He insists there’s nothing going on there, though. (Ryan Hannable; WEEI)

So, now the season may just come down to David Price pitching well in Game Two. Hold on to your butts. (Greg Bedard; Boston Sports Journal) ($$)
