The Red Sox beat the Astros in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series on Monday which makes the accusation even more controversial.  The Red Sox played multiple pitchers during the game, including Matt Barnes, Ryan Braiser, Rick Porcello, and Craig Kimbrel and the guys were praised by manager Alex Cora who said "They did an outstanding job. They’ve done it throughout the postseason. We trust those guys. There are certain matchups we like with them. We’re going to try to go to those matchups.”
