The Boston Red Sox scraped past the Houston Astros 8-6 Wednesday night, grabbing a three-games-to-one lead in the American League Championship Series, but the game is likely to be best remembered for a controversial call of fan interference. The Astros felt they were the victims of a bad ruling that a fan interfered with Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts as he tried to make a catch—the Astros insisted it was a home run, but umpire Joe West ruled it an out. “Two runs,” said the Astros’ Jose Altuve. “The game ended up by two runs, so that makes me a little more upset.” Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Dodgers moved one win away from a return to the World Series, beating the Milwaukee Brewers 5-2 in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series. One more win would see their first back-to-back World Series since 1977-78.
