Fans of the Boston Red Sox mock Carlos Correa with his own gesture

After smashing a pitch from Hansel Robles into the stands in Game 1, Correa pointed to his left wrist which looked like he was asking, “What time is it?” He then followed it up by screaming, “It’s my time!” while going around the diamond to complete a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh inning.

The Astros won the game 5-4, but succumbed to exceptional hitting from the Red Sox after that. After winning Game 2 9-5, the latter scored an even bigger victory in Game 3, with the scoreline reading 12-3. Correa endured a difficult night in Boston yesterday, failing to record a single hit.

In the top of the second inning, Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodríguez struck out Correa cleverly. While walking to the dugout, a fan mocked him with his gesture from Game 1, by pointing to his watch and asking, “What time is it?”

Apart from the fans in Fenway Park, other Red Sox fans outside the stadium mocked the shortstop as well.

Can the Houston Astros level the ALCS in Game 4?

Although the Astros didn’t look like themselves in the last two games, they know how to win in Fenway Park. During the regular season, the Astros won two games at Boston in their three-game series. Overall, they played seven matches, with the Astros winning five of them.

While regular season records often account for little in the postseason, the Astros look likely to produce a better performance in Game 4 later today, especially with the possibility of falling 3-1 behind in the series looming large.
