The Boston Red Sox might've evened the ALCS against the Houston Astros, but not cleanly. 


Reliever Matt Barnes came into the game in the fifth inning, but he didn't come alone. In a video posted by a fan, you can see something on Barnes' arm. That glistening substance looks like pine tar, which you can see around the 30-second mark.

That definitely looks suspicious.

This also isn't something that's new. Watch yet another fan video where Joe Kelly appears to be using pine tar against the Yankees. 

That's two different instances where there's a substance on the arm of a Red Sox reliever. That's not a coincidence, that's blatant cheating.

The MLB has yet to say anything about this, but you have to assume they'll at least look into it at some point. On a stage this big, something like this can't just be brushed under the carpet.
