Major League Baseball says the Astros were definitely not cheating

REPORT Astros Suspected of Cheating In ALCS ALDS

There has been no denial by Major League Baseball, the Red Sox, Astros, or Indians regarding the incident or any of the aforementioned details.

The Red Sox' 8-6 victory over the Houston Astros in Game 4 of the ALCS Wednesday night at Minute Maid Park certainly had it all - clutch hits, great grabs, daring managerial button-pushing.

However, a league source said Tuesday night that the investigation concluded the Astros employee was not trying to steal signs, but was acting on suspicions the Red Sox had been stealing Astros signs, and was there to try to catch them in the act. Dombrowski said there are "a lot more steps that are attached to this" before adding, "I think it's partially closed, but I don't think it's all the way closed". The employee, reported by Yahoo's Jeff Passan to be Kyle McLaughlin, was said to be pointing a small camera into the Boston dugout.

A loud thud is heard, then audible laughter, followed by Castiglione piping in, matter-of-factly, "I just went head over heels in my chair".

The two teams went back and forth throughout the game, with Boston taking an early 3-1 lead before a George Springer blast and Josh Reddick single tied it up in the third.

When asked if he felt like anything was going on during the first two ALCS games at Fenway Park, Cora responded, "No, I don't". It's unclear as to whether or not that warning came from Major League Baseball or the Red Sox. "If we feel there's something going on, we switch signs".

The Astros' Game 3 loss was only the team's second defeat at home in their past 12 playoff games since the start of last season. Now he has an opportunity to fully change the narrative - and win over New Englanders far and wide - by pitching the Red Sox into the World Series.

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. "I'm anxious about the game".

First pitch of Game 4 is scheduled for 7:39 p.m.at Minute Maid Park.
