dddddd. Fenway also is whe Antworten

David Price is still looking to get his first postseason win as a starter, while Corey Kluber could give the Cleveland Indians a critical 2-0 advantage over the Boston Red Sox if he proves hes healthy and ready to roll. Who has the edge in their American League Division Series Game 2 showdown?Go inside the numbers and matchups that will decide tonights game, and then vote for which team will win at the bottom of the page.Inside the pitching matchupWhen?Price is on the mound: You cant ignore the big story here: Price is 0-7 with a 5.27 ERA in eight career postseason starts (he had two wins, both in relief). On one level, he has pitched better than that with 49 strikeouts and eight walks in 54? IP. He has, however, allowed 10 home runs. Seven of those were solo shots, so that doesnt explain the high ERA by itself. Indeed, he has allowed a .333 average with runners in scoring position.Prices game in recent years has been to pound the strike zone. That efficiency allows him to pitch deep into games -- he led the AL in innings for the second time in three years -- but also leads to hits and home runs. His season splits were odd: He had a 4.34 ERA in the first half, 3.58 in the second, even though he had a much lower strikeout rate after the All-Star break. He used to rely on a 95-plus fastball, throwing it 70 percent of the time, but added a cutter/slider hybrid this year that he threw about 20 percent of the time to go with a changeup and curveball. The cutter wasnt necessarily all that effective as batters hit .307/.349/.464, but offered a secondary pitch in the 88-mph range to counter his 92- to 94-mph fastball.Price will throw his fastball with command to both sides of the plate. Against righties, he likes to spot the changeup away, although he does pitch up in the zone, which explains the home run issues (30 this year). He used to be death on lefties, but they actually had a higher OPS against him this year. -- David SchoenfieldWhen?Kluber is on the mound: Its all about health for the 2014 Cy Young winner (and 2016 Cy Young contender) after leaving his final start on Sept. 26 with a right quad strain. Trevor Bauer drew the Game 1 start to give Kluber an additional day of rest.Klubers best pitch is one of the most dominant in baseball: A curveball (some call it a slider) that held batters to an .099 average and recorded a strikeout rate of 52.8 percent. He buries it low and away from righties, and over the past three seasons, batters have hit .106 against it with just five home runs. With two strikes, he throws it about a third of the time, so batters cant really sit. Along with his fastball he throws a cutter and an occasional changeup.One thing to watch: Kluber has always pitched much better from the windup than with runners on base. The splits werent as drastic this year, but he held batters to a .587 OPS with nobody on versus .715 with runners on and .735 with runners in scoring position. Batters also hit .339 and slugged .578 when putting the first pitch in play, so look for the Red Sox to be aggressive on first-pitch fastballs. -- SchoenfieldPlayer in the spotlightMookie Betts:?-- Speaking of fastballs, the potential AL MVP hit .328/.379/.581 against them, increasing his OPS 167 points from 2015. Betts had a big home/road split, with 49 extra-base hits at Fenway versus 29 on the road (although only three more home runs at home). Cleveland did play as a good home run park in 2016, so keep that in mind.?--?SchoenfieldWhat will decide tonights gameThe Indians success will likely hinge on one of the best pitches in baseball -- Corey Klubers curveball. Opponents hit .099 against his curve this season, the second-lowest opponents batting average against that pitch among starters who qualified for the ERA title. The pitch had the third-highest run value per 100 pitches (a stat charted on of any pitch thrown regularly by anyone with at least 100 innings pitched last season (behind John Lackeys and Clayton Kershaws sliders).Klubers success with the pitch is predicated on getting hitters to chase it -- hes generated a 47 percent chase rate, best among starters. The two best hitters in the Red Sox lineup -- David Ortiz and Mookie Betts -- happen to be least likely among their regulars to chase a curveball from a righty. Betts fared well against Kluber this season (4-for-7 with a homer). Ortiz is 1-for-5 against Kluber this season, but does have two home runs in 16 at-bats against him.?--?ESPN Stats & InfoChoosing sides: Who will win?The Red Sox. Given David Prices postseason track record (0-7, 5.28 ERA in eight starts), Bostons starter doesnt inspire much confidence. But it was pretty clear in Game 1 that the Indians cant win if they dont use relievers Andrew Miller and Cody Allen. After both threw 40 pitches Thursday night, its unclear how available they will be given the quick turnaround for Game 2. Short of a complete game from starter Corey Kluber, the Indians might not have the horses to get to Boston with a 2-0 series lead. -- Scott LauberThe Red Sox will take Game 2 after eventually forcing Corey Kluber to be removed and taking advantage of the Indians depleted bullpen to tie the series at one game each. The Red Sox could probably still win the series even with a loss Friday, but the Indians have been difficult to beat in three consecutive games all season; Boston would be wise to take care of business on Friday.?-- Andrew MarchandWhere the series standsTerry Francona may have used relievers Andrew Miller and Cody Allen for 40 pitches apiece in Game 1 -- season highs for both -- but he still has Bryan Shaw for Game 2, plus Dan Otero, who posted a 1.53 ERA this year. Even Miller should be available for a few batters, or at least to face David Ortiz in a big moment. Most importantly, the Indians are up in the series and hope to ride their ace to take the commanding lead.?--?Schoenfield Nike Air Force 1 Wholesale . Burris threw two TD passes, including a key 15-yard fourth-quarter strike to Bakari Grant that effectively countered a Toronto comeback bid and led Hamilton to a 33-19 victory. Nike Air Force 1 Clearance . John Lucas, signed as a mentor for rookie Trey Burke, showed he can score if required, scoring 12 points of his 16 points in the second quarter as Utah built an 18-point lead. Cheap Air Force Ones . -- Anaheim Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a torn tendon in his right hand. Nike Air Force 1 Sale . The 27-year-old Scrivens will be joining his third NHL club since signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in 2010. The move also reunites with him with head coach Dallas Eakins from their time together with the American Hockey Leagues Toronto Marlies. BOSTON -- Singer-songwriter James Taylor has announced a summer tour of four baseball parks, culminating in a date at Fenway Park, home of his beloved Boston Red Sox.Taylor and his All-Star Band will open the tour July 14 at Nationals Park in Washington. It continues July 17 at Wrigley Field in Chicago; July 29 at AT&T Park in San Francisco; and Aug. 11 at Fenway.Bonnie Raitt is scheduled to play at each show.It will be the third consecutive year Taylor has played Fenway. Taylor wwas born in Boston and now lives in the Berkshire Mountains in western Massachusetts.dddddddddddd. Fenway also is where Taylor debuted his video for Angels of Fenway, his ode to the redemptive spirit of baseball and a song featured on his 2015 album Before This World.---This story has been corrected to shows the ode title begins with Angels, not Angles.
