Houston Astros' George Springer scores on teammate Alex Bregman's hit during the seventh inning in Game 1 of an American League Division Series baseball game against the Cleveland Indians, Friday, Oct. 5, 2018, in Houston. But in the 10th inning, former Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas came through with a game-winning RBI single that won it for the Brewers.
Kluber, a two-time Cy Young victor who was coming off his first 20-win season, was tagged for three home runs in 4 2/3 innings.
Game 3 will be held in either Chicago or Denver, based on who wins the Wild Card game.
One year after he was pounded by Houston in his playoff debut, Sale took a four-hit shutout into the sixth inning.
The Red Sox built an early lead, going up 3-0 in the first inning on Martinez's home run, and 5-0 after three in front of their ecstatic fans at Fenway Park.
Yelich recorded two hits, including the two-run home run responsible for opening the game's scoring, before Moose ended it in the opener.
The Bronx Bombers looked like they might mount a comeback when slugger Aaron Judge led off the top of the ninth with a homer off Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel, cutting the lead to one.
The Brewers moved within one game of their first NL Championship Series appearance since 2011 as Jhoulys Chacin, starting on short rest, threw five scoreless innings and the bullpen maintained the shutout.
Game 3 is Sunday at Coors Field.
At the time of this writing, I have to admit that the Brewers are already up 2 games to none against the Rockies, the Dodgers lead the Braves and the Astros lead the Indians 1 game to none, while the Red Sox are beating the Yankees 5 to 0 after 5 innings with Chris Sale on the mound with 8 K's so far ... so much for this shoulder concerns! The wild-card Rockies have scored six times in their last four games, and their potent lineup is showing signs of frustration.
