Boston Red Sox at Houston Astros, ALCS Game 4 (7:39 CT, TBS)

I can’t believe they did it, but the Houston Astros “spying on dugouts in order to make sure they’re not spying on us” schtick has made me start rooting for the Boston Red Sox. I need a shower, and first pitch hasn’t even been thrown.

It’s Rick Porcello vs. Charlie Morton, as Houston must counterpunch tonight in order to avoid a 3-1 hole with two of three possible games remaining in Boston.

As tempting as it may be to say that the Red Sox offense has simply overwhelmed the Astros, credit Boston starters for holding things together OK, especially future free agent gazillionaire Nathan Eovaldi, to whose mother I once sold a Nathan Eovaldi baseball card.

I believe it’s been said a few times, but funny how all those “unbeatable dynasty” stories about the Astros after a big Game 1 win in Boston have suddenly evaporated in the wind.

All right, enough of my editorializing. Let’s see if Houston can make like the Dodgers and even the series 2-2.
