Sean McAdam spoke with a scout to break down the matchup between the Red Sox and Astros in this ALCS. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal)

The first game didn’t go the way we wanted, to say the least. Ultimately, it came down to a battle of two bullpens who can be rocky at times, and Houston’s performed better and helped lead them to victory. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

If you are looking for a positive on the Red Sox side from this Game One, Kiké Hernández is the obviously place to start. He came up big for Boston on both sides of the ball. (Martin Gallegos; MLB.com)

The FOX booth was interviewing Dusty Baker during one of Hernández’ two homers, and it led to a great moment. (Tom Westerholm; Boston.com)

It was a bit of a surprise to some that Matt Barnes was left off the roster with Hirokazu Sawamura taking his place. Alex Cora explained the move. (Christopher Smith; Masslive)

And speaking of Devers, that time off should be good for his ailing arm. (Steve Hewitt; Boston Herald)
