J.D. Martínez celebrated with his father on the field. He had previously talked to me about what his father has meant to his career: "My dad, when he came over from Cuba, he was working over 100 hours a week at Domino's Pizza, flipping pizzas, just to put food on the plate every night for us. Just [seeing] the way he's achieved his dream. He started his own company. To me, he did the American dream and he had that spirit of, 'I am not going to give up.' He had that hunger, that desire, to make something of himself and that's kind of what he always taught me."

Alex Bregman on the Astros failing to repeat: "To be honest with you, this year's team is better than last year's team, I believe. The ball's gotta bounce your way in the postseason. It's tough, and we'll learn from it. Everyone in here will have a little bit of an edge to play with next year, a little bit of a chip on their shoulder, knowing that we believe we should have been back-to-back champions."

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

David Price changed the script and tossed six dominant scoreless innings to win his first game as a starter in the postseason and send the Red Sox into the World Series with a 4-1 victory over the Astros. The Red Sox swept all three games in Houston, the 108-win team knocking off the 103-win team in the clash of titans.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Instead of toasting again, the Astros are toast. With a 4-1 loss to the Red Sox in Game 5 of the ALCS, Houston's bid to repeat as World Series champs is officially over. They were attempting to become the first team since the 2000 Yankees to win back-to-back titles.
