'Huge win': Why the Astros have a good shot at winning the ALCS vs. Red Sox despite pitching issues

"This is enjoying baseball as if you are a child," Astros manager Dusty Baker said after a 9-2 win in Game 4. "This is one of the great things about baseball."

The Houston Astros flipped the script on the Boston Red Sox Tuesday when their bats came alive in the ninth inning. The 9-2 win in Game 4 guarantees at least one game in Houston in the American League Championship Series.

The 'Stros also stole momentum from the Sox by tying the series 2-2 despite injuries on the starting pitching staff and three grand slams by Boston in Games 2 and 3. 

"This is enjoying baseball as if you are a child," Astros manager Dusty Baker said after a 9-2 win in  Game 4. "This is one of the great things about baseball. When you're dead in the water and things aren't going good, and then all of a sudden boom, boom, boom, and you got seven runs, and that's what they've been doing to us this whole series, and we're capable of doing that as well."
