The second person tried to gain access to the field photographer's pit but was turned away, said the people who spoke Wednesday to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

After Nunez departed, Devers failed to come up with a hard grounder that cost the Red Sox a run in the fifth inning.

With the Red Sox deep into the postseason and now facing the equally analytically minded Astros, those little edges come at a premium.

Sale told Cora, "I'm good enough" to pitch in Game 5 tomorrow, though Cora said before the game that the Sox are considering a contingency plan.

Sources say the Dodgers also believed that Houston was stealing signs in last year's World Series. The man's credential was requested by Houston, according to the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Steve Pearce hit a tiebreaking homer for the Red Sox off Joe Smith in the sixth, a drive that sailed just inside the foul pole in left field for a 3-2 lead.

Major League Baseball told the Metro the matter is being handled internally.

Something sketchy went down at Fenway during Game 1 of the ALCS.

The score was Hill's third touchdown of the game and when he got to the end zone, he definitely didn't get a warm welcome. He made a lot of big ones - the one at the end to Tyreek (Hill) was a great throw, and he had some other great throws.

Security was tipped off to the man by the Cleveland Indians, according to multiple reports. Per the report, the man had a small camera and was texting frequently.

"I'm aware of something going on, but I haven't been briefed", Hinch said. "I'm anxious about the game". And we don't get caught up in the whole paranoia thing [with] the signs. "We try to slow it down and if we feel there's something going on, we try to switch the signs". After being asked about the man claiming to be an Astros' employee and the warning given to the Red Sox, an Indians spokesman said via email on Tuesday, "We are not going to comment on this situation". "I'm not concerned about it though".

This isn't the first time the Astros have been suspected of cheating. Bauer didn't provide any specifics but his insinuations triggered a social-media storm, which included responses from several Astros players, including pitchers Lance McCullers Jr. and Collin McHugh.

Security at Fenway Park had been warned about the man, because of his similarly suspicious behavior during the Astros' ALDS win over the Cleveland Indians. Ramirez went hitless in 11 at-bats.

Price was in the bullpen last night and the TBS cameras spotted him raking the bullpen mound during the game.

"We can play at any park", Eovaldi said. But I just heard today'.

"I really wanted him to get one more at-bat against Dallas, because that's why he was in the lineup", Cora said.
