Astros may have been cheating in Game 1 against Red Sox

In the ninth inning of Wednesday night's epic ALCS Game 4 between the Red Sox and Astros, Castiglione was taken aback by Boston left fielder Andrew Benintendi's game-saving, game-ending catch.

Sign-stealing has been an issue all series. The man, who did not have a credential, had a small camera and was texting frequently, per the report. However, it does not appear as though this was an isolated incident. Nevertheless, Eovaldi, whom the Red Sox acquired from the Rays in late July, gave up only two runs on six hits and two walks, striking out four - four more than Astros starter Dallas Keuchel, who allowed two runs in five innings. "The series of complaints against the Astros, Sherman notes, could stem in part from a reputation in the industry that portrays them as a "[New England] Patriots-like" organization - that is, one that "pushes to the limits of the rules - and perhaps beyond".

The utilization of technology in sign-stealing efforts isn't likely to go away, and it'll continue to force teams and players into more rigorous efforts to protect signs.

Red Sox security reportedly was warned about the man due to suspicious activity in Houston's ALDS against the Cleveland Indians. ESPN's Buster Olney pointed out the Red Sox were using multiple signs with the bases empty to avoid having their signs stolen, though they did that long before their series with Houston. The Red Sox, for example, were seen calling out Luis Severino's pitches during the ALDS.

In 2017, an Major League Baseball investigation concluded that the Red Sox orchestrated a scheme to illicitly steal opponents' catchers hand signals during games with the help of an Apple Watch.

Even if the cookies were found to contain cremated human ashes, the student's actions would not be illegal, according to Doroshov. Right now, police and the school will confirm that a investigation is underway.

During the early innings in Game 3, the Indians became aware that the man standing near their dugout in Progressive Field was aiming his cellphone into their dugout and taking pictures.

Boston has put up 7, 8, and 8 runs in the past three games against the Astros, who had by far the best ERA in baseball this season with a 3.11 mark.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said he heard about the alleged incident.

After the Indians lost the American League Division Series to the Astros in a three-game sweep last week, Cleveland said a man was seen with a cellphone standing by the photographer's pit at Progressive Field, the Indians' home park, October 8.
