The Indians can ensure a second straight ALCS appearance by taking Game 3.
"Never really gave my team a chance to win".
The Red Sox were determined to not let All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve beat them like he did in the series opener.
Hendricks went about things differently - his best fastball is about 10 miles per hour slower than Strasburg's - but was every bit as good.
And so, there is considerable curiosity within the industry about whether another division series sweep will bring sweeping change in Boston, beginning with the manager.
Even though he beat Boston on September 28, it was still hard for him to fathom that he will face them in Game 3. He allowed two earned runs on four hits with two strikeouts and one walk over five innings in a 12-2 win at Boston his last regular season start.
Fister has been OK since the Red Sox picked him off waivers in June - he was 5-9 with a 4.88 ERA, including an August in which he was 2-2 with a 3.71 ERA. The 28-year-old went 7-3 with a 3.19 ERA on the road this year and 1-0 with a 1.46 ERA in two starts against the Astros.
Starters have not yet been named for Game 4 or 5, and despite starting 33 games during the regular season, Rick Porcello might not be one of those starters, pitching an inning of relief on Thursday. Boston has a history of manager scapegoats, so anything is possible if the Red Sox get totally embarrassed in the series. The Astros got a gift when Mookie Betts caught a fly ball to right and dropped it while trying to wind up a throw toward the plate.

This is Sale's first year with the Red Sox after being traded from the Chicago White Sox back in December. Carlos Correa finished 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk, two runs and four RBIs.
Jose Altuve was a monster in Game 1 on Thursday, and the Astros are off to a fast start in the American League Divisional Series because of it. "We feel like we're in the game and then it's just one inning that they take off", Bogaerts said.
David Price, the man with the most questions about his postseason ability entering October, settled things down, keeping the Houston offense at bay over 2.2 innings, in which he allowed just one hit and one walk while striking out two. They are young and don't have David Ortiz so it's going to be tough to win this best-of-five series. Now the Red Sox will see if they can tie up the series before it heads back to Boston. There was a reason late Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino used to say that then-Red Sox manager Terry Francona's job was more hard than his.
As you get ready for Game 2 of the ALDS against the Houston Astros, I want you to know that we all believe in you. Betts promised after that game he would be good to go.
After Hendricks' bunt moved Baez to second, 2016 NL MVP Bryant lined Strasburg's 60th pitch, a four-seam fastball, to right-center for the game's first run. Nunez's knee gave way again in the first inning, and he had to be carried off the field by Farrell and a trainer, although it was the medical staff, not Farrell, that cleared Nunez to play. Fister, 33, pitched for Houston a year ago (12-13, 4.64 ERA) but wasn't re-signed.
The Astros have some numbers against Fister.
Correa drove home Springer and Altuve by lining the first pitch from Reed to left field and scored on the ensuing pitch when Evan Gattis followed with an RBI single.
