After being dominated through the first two games of the ALDS by the Houston Astros, the Boston Red Sox looked as though they would be swept out of the postseason with little resistance.

Boston, still trailing 2-1 in the series, will try to pull level when they host game four on Monday. If the Houston wins Game 4 and clinches the series, whenever it's played, losing a day between games would, of course, become inconsequential and render the prospect of Game 5 moot.

The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees kept their Major League Baseball playoff bids going on Sunday with the Red Sox offense coming alive and Yankees winning a pitching duel.

Bogaerts had been 0-for-14 through the first three games before the homer. He lasted only 1 1/3 innings, giving up three runs on four hits.

"We don't give up", he said.

Now comes another do-or-die afternoon for the Red Sox as Game 4 goes down on Monday afternoon at Fenway Park.

It was the first postseason win for Boston since the 2013 World Series Game 6, after past year being swept by Cleveland.
