Red Sox face elimination, work on ALCS turnaround vs. Astros

Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora is aware of all the cliches heading into Friday's Game 6 of the American League Championship Series against the host Houston Astros.

The Red Sox, after all, are facing a 3-2 deficit in the best-of-seven series after sustaining back-to-back losses at Fenway Park in Boston. The Astros have totaled 18 runs on 23 hits over the last two games, while the Red Sox have mustered just three and eight, respectively.

Despite the lopsided totals, Cora is focused on having his team even the series to set up a winner-take-all Game 7 on Saturday.
