Major League Baseball investigating Houston Astros' photographer during ALCS vs. Boston Red Sox

Astros cheating cheated cheat

REPORT: Astros Suspected of Cheating In ALCS, ALDS

The Red Sox are 3-0 on the road so far in this postseason, having defeated the Yankees twice in the AL Division Series; the Yankees put up a 54-28 record at the Stadium, and the Astros were 48-35 at Minute Maid Park, though they have been an even better 59-25 away from home. The employee, reported by Yahoo's Jeff Passan to be Kyle McLaughlin, was said to be pointing a small camera into the Boston dugout.

An unidentified man, who had been issued a credential before the October 8 game in Cleveland, was removed from an area near Boston's dugout for taking photos during Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday, according to a report by Metro Boston and Yahoo Sports.

In the third inning, security confronted the man, who did not have a credential for that area.

The inquiry began when the general manager of the second-place New York Yankees, Brian Cashman, filed a complaint with the commissioner's office a few weeks ago, including video from the teams' three-game series in August that allegedly depicted a member of the first-place Red Sox training staff looking at his Apple Watch and relaying messages to players, according to the New York Times.

The Red Sox were reportedly given a heads up about Houston by the Cleveland Indians after they had a similar situation with the Astros in the ALDS.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Astros deployed McLaughlin to monitor whether the Red Sox were cheating on their side of the field.
