Astros' Verlander aims to remain hot vs. Red Sox

05 Octubre 2017, 06:29 | Cornelio Vivanco

Houston clinched the AL West weeks ago. The Red Sox are still trying to get a read on his ability to play defense, but Nunez said his knee felt good during a simulated game on Monday. "He respects the success that we've had this season and the previous couple of seasons, and he wants to do his part". Which team is best stacked to save a championship?

If Boston defeats Houston in the ALDS, they will advance to the ALCS.

But Pedroia's mentality has gained him an admirer in Jose Altuve, the similarly undersized Astro that should win the American League MVP award this season. He's started at least 14 games at five different spots this year, but he's settled into left field since the trade of Nori Aoki and the season-ending injury to Jake Marisnick. "He's as consistent a player as there is in major league baseball".

After wrapping up the regular season with over 100 wins for only the second time in franchise history the Houston Astros are getting ready for what they hope will be a very long playoff run.

The Astros led the majors by a wide margin in runs (896) and batting average (.282).

The Boston Red Sox begin their postseason in the Lone Star State of Texas as they face off against the Houston Astros.

McHugh pitched six innings, allowing three runs to improve to 16-0 in September and October since 2014.

Tyler Clippard got the save, his fifth of the season and second with Houston.

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said they'd been trying to get Verlander since late July but weren't able to pull it off until just before the deadline for having players eligible for postseason play. "I don't feel anything at this time". I'm up for pitching.

Let's be honest: The Astros should beat the Red Sox. The Red Sox run well, and even if stolen-base threat and spark-plug Eduardo Nunez doesn't return to full health in time to play, guys like Mookie Betts, Andrew Benintendi and Xander Bogaerts could test the tandem of Brian McCann and Evan Gattis throughout the series. "But you're still looking to evaluate all the way through the final out".

By the way, if you didn't notice, I've chose to carry 12 pitchers on my roster - with 13 position players - but I'm not sure what A.J. Peacock earned the rubber for Game 3, and McCullers has already indicated in the press he's open to a bullpen role in the postseason, but either one would be a decent start. Gurriel's sacrifice fly broke the 3-3 tie.

The question in this one from a Red Sox perspective is can Sale control the big offense of Houston who can do everything and do it well. They were swept out of the playoffs previous year by Cleveland. Farrell is the only manager ever to lead the Red Sox to three first-place finishes. Houston took three of four games at Fenway Park to end the regular season, outscoring the Red Sox by a count of 22-13 over the four days.

The Astros finished the season with the second-best record in the American League at 101-61, but they had problems winning games when southpaws took the mound against them.

Hinch said his motivation for wanting to join the Astros was simple.
