Chris Sale won't start for Red Sox in Game 5 of ALCS

Chris Sale won't start for Red Sox in Game 5 of ALCS

A request for comment was also made to the Cleveland Indians organization. A separate report identified the man as Kyle McLaughlin and says he aimed a cell phone into the Indians' dugout during their Game 3 loss to the Astros in the AL Division Series.

With two out and two on in the Red Sox' half of the third inning in ALCS Game 3 on Tuesday, Steve Pearce drove a fly ball deep to left field that seemed certain to hit the wall and drive home both baserunners.

"We are aware of the matter and it will be handled internally", an Major League Baseball spokesperson told Metro.

While it's yet to be proven if the Astros were doing anything illegal, the two incidents have raised further questions about the use of electronic equipment during games and whether Houston has been cheating.

Security was tipped off to the man by the Cleveland Indians, according to multiple reports. The man, who did not have a credential, had a small camera and was texting frequently, per the report.

Cora was asked about the situation after Boston's 8-2 win in Game 3.

Harvard on trial over alleged discrimination against Asian students
Asian-Americans, who represent about 6 percent of the USA population, comprise 23 percent of Harvard's current freshman class. Harvard says they use a "holistic" strategy to evaluate students, and that race is only one minor consideration.


"I'm aware of something going on, but I haven't been briefed", he told reporters. To address those worries, the commissioner instituted a new prohibition on the use of certain in-stadium cameras, beefing up Major League Baseball security at games and monitoring video rooms. Ironically, it was the Red Sox who were fined by the league last season for using an Apple Watch in a sign-stealing scheme. "So I mean we do a good job changing sequences and paying attention to details". It's arguable that these tactics are of in the spirit of more "traditional" sign-stealing methods that have been employed for decades (e.g. runner on second base looking in on a catcher's signs), though the advent of technology obviously presents new methods of gaining that edge - methods that exist in what is at best an ethical gray area. "We try to slow it down and if we feel there's something going on, we try to switch the signs". "And then we'll go from there", Cora said after Tuesday's victory.

This isn't the first time the Astros have been suspected of cheating. Bauer wasn't specific, but Astros pitchers Lance McCullers Jr. and Collin McHugh defended themselves on social media.

Following Game 3, Indians starter Mike Clevinger alluded to the Astros having an advantage.

After both teams left the field between innings, the Red Sox challenged the play.

"We were just outplayed", Kipnis said. It just seems from top to bottom we were out-scouted, out-pitched, out-coached a little bit.

"It's a credit to him, because at this level, when you're hitting.180 after two months or I think it was three months, it is hard", Cora said.
