One more out and it all would have been over.

One more out in the fifth inning of the Red Sox' eventual 7-5 victory over the Astros in Game 2 to even the American League Championship Series 1-1 and the monkey would have been off his back.

Well, considering it marked the first time in any of David Price's 11 career postseason starts that his team ended up winning ... something was definitely accomplished.

"We won," a content Price said after the game. "That's my first team win as a starter. So if it's baby steps, it's baby steps. I expect to win. But I'm very happy that we won."

This will be known as the "almost" game for Price.
