I guess we'll never know, but I disagree with the call, too.  Price was still sharp.

All i can figure is that, given Price's history, Cora just wanted to preserve an essentially perfect performance for Price and not risk any hiccups. This is a HUGE moment for Price. If he can continue this the Sox are near unbeatable. IMO Cora was more worried about that than one inning, which might have done more harm than help.

Barnes was one strike away from a clean inning... so hard to trust this pen

Good move bringing in Eovaldi. Barnes was in self-destruct mode.

GREAT outing for Price! I've been hard on him, but tonight he earned his pay.

Missed opportunity there with Kinsler on 3rd.

Nice play by Gurriel.  The Astros' defense is great.

Great job by Eovaldi.  Who pitches the 9th?  Please not Kimbrel.  I'd have more faith in ERod.

I think Kelly was warming up. I'd rather see Evo come back and at least try to pitch the 9th.

It looks like Kimbrel.  I'd rather see Evo too.

I guess Cora's bored and wants to make things interesting.

Ugh.  I don't think we can trust Kimbrel with a 3 run lead.
