Bob Levey/Getty ImagesThe Boston Red Sox pulled ahead in the American League Championship Series after an 8-2 Game 3 win over the Houston Astros.Steve Pearce hit the go-ahead home run in the sixth inning http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-jose-canseco-jersey , but Jackie Bradley Jr. helped the team pull away with an eighth-inning grand slam.Nathan Eovaldi earned the win after allowing two runs in six innings to help the Red Soxtake a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.Defense Is as Important as Offense in This SeriesAs we have seen in the playoffs and throughout the regular season, there isn't a lot that separates these two teams. They both have elite pitchers and deep lineups, which will ensure each game begins as a toss-up.However, defense can make a difference in games and it could give the Astros an advantage going forward and a chance to even things up.Houston made some eye-popping plays, although none were better than Tony Kemp's catch in the outfield:BYU鈥檚 Cosmo the Cougar Is the Next Superstar MascotJoshua Johnson Is HS Footballs Quadruple ThreatThe Champions x Queer EyeHappy 26th Birthday to OBJ 馃帀Happy Anniversary to the Cubs Curse-BreakingD-Rose Turned Back the Clock and Put Up 50Will Drake鈥檚 Favorite Teams Reverse the 6 God Curse?Sports Worlds Halloween Costumes Went HardUp Your Halloween Game with Giant Pumpkin RegattaThe Champions: Episode 6 Is ComingDubs Trolled Fergie So Hard It Became a ChallengePurdue Footballs No. 1 Fan Is Inspiring the TeamOne Road to MLB Starts with a Bottle Cap and BroomstickIts Been a Wild Month with Flyers鈥?Mascot Gritty馃専The Champions: Episode 5 馃専CP3-Rondo Blowup Was a Long Time ComingMahomes Is Showtime Off the Field TooCFBs Creative Entrances Put WWE to ShameWorld Pole Climbing Championships Are Something ElseNBA Let Players Know They Have to Cover Branded TattoosRight Arrow IconWith two men on and two outs at the time, this play saved at least one run and possibly more.Carlos Correa and Alex Bregman also made impressive plays in the infield, with the latter turning heads several times during the game:MLB MLBWhat can鈥檛 ABREG_1 do well? #ALCS VOE5ZNTWNtZachary quot;Doomquot; Rymer zachrymerAlex Bregmans third base defense has been the best part of this ALCS.Jon Heyman JonHeymanAlex Bregman is putting on a showOn the other side http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-jed-lowrie-jersey , the Red Sox finished with zero errors but cost themselves with several misplays. The Red Sox only got one out on a potential double-play grounder in the first, and a runner eventually came home. Rafael Devers couldn't make a play on what became an RBI double in the fifth.According toBaseball Reference, the Astros had 1.3 defensive wins above replacement as a team this year, while the Red Sox wereminus-4.1over the course of the season. We are now seeing this play out in real time during the ALCS.If this doesn't change, the defensive difference could lead to a series win for Houston despite being down 2-1 in the series.Nathan Eovaldi's Efficiency Saved Series for BostonNathan Eovaldi's start must have seemed like a perfect game compared to what we have seen from the Red Sox pitching staff this postseason.The 28-year-old overcame a difficult first inning to produce a quality start, allowing two runs in six innings, his second strong outing of the playoffs:Joel Sherman Joelsherman1Eovaldi gave up 3 hits and a run in 1st inning on 26 pitches. He has allowed 3 hits and 1 run on 66 pitches over next 5 innings Tony Phillips Jersey , and 2 of the hits could have (should have?) been ruled errors. #RedSox #Astros He is making himself lots of dough in free agency.He also pitched seven innings of one-run ball in Game 3 against the New York Yankees, although few noticed in the 16-1 win.His effort likely changed the momentum of the ALDS while providing some much-needed relief for the bullpen after being overworked in the first two games. The story was the same in the first two games of this round, with neither Chris Sale nor David Price capable of getting out of the fifth inning.Tuesday's start allowed manager Alex Cora to put his best pitchers on the mound instead of worrying about matchups for five or more innings. The insurance runs at the end also allowed him to save closer Craig Kimbrel.The key players will now be able to pitch in Game 4if needed, a big advantage going into an important battle. Red Sox Don't Need Stars to Punch World Series TicketBoston had the No. 1 scoring offense in baseball this season as players like Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez turned into household names.However, it's clear the hitters at the top of the order aren't the only reason this team has been successful this year.Betts finished 1-for-5 in Game 3 while Martinez and Andrew Benintendi have both struggled throughout this series. Still, the team has managed 15 runs over the past two games thanks to the contributions from the back of the lineup.Bradley only had a .234 batting average this season and finished seventh on the team in RBI, but he has now driven in seven runs in the last two games. His grand slam helped break things open in the eighth inning:BYU鈥檚 Cosmo the Cougar Is the Next Superstar MascotJoshua Johnson Is HS Footballs Quadruple ThreatThe Champions x Queer EyeHappy 26th Birthday to OBJ 馃帀Happy Anniversary to the Cubs Curse-BreakingD-Rose Turned Back the Clock and Put Up 50Will Drake鈥檚 Favorite Teams Reverse the 6 God Curse?Sports Worlds Halloween Costumes Went HardUp Your Halloween Game with Giant Pumpkin RegattaThe Champions: Episode 6 Is ComingDubs Trolled Fergie So Hard It Became a ChallengePurdue Footballs No. 1 Fan Is Inspiring the TeamOne Road to MLB Starts with a Bottle Cap and BroomstickIts Been a Wild Month with Flyers鈥?Mascot Gritty馃専The Champions: Episode 5 馃専CP3-Rondo Blowup Was a Long Time ComingMahomes Is Showtime Off the Field TooCFBs Creative Entrances Put WWE to ShameWorld Pole Climbing Championships Are Something ElseNBA Let Players Know They Have to Cover Branded TattoosRight Arrow IconPearce鈥攚ho was traded to the team at the end of June鈥攈elped give Boston the initial lead:BYU鈥檚 Cosmo the Cougar Is the Next Superstar MascotJoshua Johnson Is HS Footballs Quadruple ThreatThe Champions x Queer EyeHappy 26th Birthday to OBJ 馃帀Happy Anniversary to the Cubs Curse-BreakingD-Rose Turned Back the Clock and Put Up 50Will Drake鈥檚 Favorite Teams Reverse the 6 God Curse?Sports Worlds Halloween Costumes Went HardUp Your Halloween Game with Giant Pumpkin RegattaThe Champions: Episode 6 Is ComingDubs Trolled Fergie So Hard It Became a ChallengePurdue Footballs No. 1 Fan Is Inspiring the TeamOne Road to MLB Starts with a Bottle Cap and BroomstickIts Been a Wild Month with Flyers鈥?Mascot Gritty馃専The Champions: Episode 5 馃専CP3-Rondo Blowup Was a Long Time ComingMahomes Is Showtime Off the Field TooCFBs Creative Entrances Put WWE to ShameWorld Pole Climbing Championships Are Something ElseNBA Let Players Know They Have to Cover Branded TattoosRight Arrow IconThe first baseman is hitting .304 so far this postseason.These players have shown they can come through in big moments and carry the team to victory. Even if the bigger names in the lineup stay quiet http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-walt-weiss-jersey , the Red Sox have more than enough depth to win this series. What's Next?The series will remain in Houston for the next two games, with the Astros trying to even the series in Game 4 Wednesday at 8:39 p.m. ET. Rick Porcello is expected to start for the Red Sox against Charlie Morton. The Los Angeles Angels have interviewed both Brad Ausmus and Eric Chavez as they look to fill their vacant managerial position.According to MLB Network's Jon Morosi, the Angels are "moving closer to a decision," but it isn't yet known who is favored to land the job.Mike Scioscia stepped down as the Angels manager at the conclusion of the 2018 regular season, marking the end of a 19-year run in that position.L.A. has finished 80-82 in consecutive seasons and hasn't reached the playoffs since 2014.The 49-year-old Ausmus, like Scioscia, is a former MLB catcher who played for the San Diego Padres Marcus Semien Jersey , Detroit Tigers, Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers. He was a one-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove award winner.Ausmus served as the Tigers manager from 2014 until his dismissal in 2017.Although Detroit went 90-72 and reached the playoffs during his first year at the helm, they went just 64-98 in 2017, and he finished with a 314-332 record overall.Chavez, 40, was primarily a third baseman during an MLB career that spanned 17 seasons with the Oakland Athletics, New York Yankees and Arizona Diamondbacks. He was a six-time Golden Glove award winner and one-time Silver Slugger award winner.After retiring at the conclusion of the 2014 season http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-morgan-jersey , Chavez became a television analyst before serving in front-office roles for the Yankees and then the Angels.In August, Chavez became the Triple-A Salt Lake Bees manager after Keith Johnson was promoted to the Angels coaching staff.Chavez was a special assistant to Angels general manager Billy Eppler before getting his first taste of coaching with the Angels farm club.Whoever gets the nod as L.A.'s next manager will take over a talented club that is led by perennial MVP candidate Mike Trout.
