Boston Red Sox Red Sox Lack True Star Power

Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox host the Houston Astros at Fenway Park beginning at 1:30 p.m. Verlander got the team deep into the game and got off the mound after only 99 pitches.

Carlos Correa, SS, Astros: The young star got everything headed in the right direction for the Astros on the afternoon with his bomb to left field in the bottom of the first. "We won't take anything for granted".

The upstarts in 2013 saw Jon Lester toss 15 1/3 innings of one-run ball in the World Series, and when his team needed it most, John Lackey came alive. This year through two games, they've been outscored 16-4.

For the Astros to nail down a game two win, they'll Keuchel to mirror Verlander's strong opening inning. Things are different now. The Astros now have the lead in the best-of-five series. The Astros will counter Pomeranz by sending out former Cy Young victor Dallas Keuchel, who went 14-5 on the season with a 2.9 ERA.

Despite that, the Red Sox were more than happy when Price was healthy enough to pitch near the end of the season.

Farrell similarly held off on naming a Game 4 starter. In his career, Peacock is 1-2 with a 9.00 ERA and 9 strikeouts against Boston. In Game 2, the Astros would tally eight runs on 12 hits-this time only hitting three home runs.

You can also live stream the Red Sox vs. Astros ALDS game through Sling TV free trial. After he missed a large chunk of the season due to torn ligaments in his thumb, he appears to be back to his old self - which was an MVP-caliber player pre-injury. The Astros lineup would shell Pomeranz, forcing him out of the game after giving up four runs, including two home runs, in only two innings pitched.

One year after almost costing the Indians a trip to the World Series, Bauer helped them take the first step back.

Pomeranz was the pitcher of record when Boston clinched the AL East on September 30 against the Astros, allowing one run on three hits and two walks with three strikeouts over six innings in a 6-3 victory. Everyone counted them out in 2004 when they were down three games to none to the Yankees, but they were still able to come back.

"It's a close-knit group, there's constant conversation that goes on", Farrell said.

Along with being streaky, this series has revealed that Boston just doesn't have the roster depth to have postseason luck.

After yesterday's drubbing, Xander Bogaerts was asked what's at the crux of this five game losing streak. Fister, 33, pitched for Houston past year (12-13, 4.64 ERA) but wasn't re-signed.

Fister is 1-1 with a 3.14 ERA in three starts against Houston.

Jose Altuve is making his case to be known as the best player in baseball on the biggest stage of his career. Marwin Gonzalez is 0-for-7. The Astros hit six in their first 10 innings.

Beltran, who didn't start against the two left-handers, will be the DH for Houston Sunday.

The Red Sox offense is more built to chip away and manufacture runs, so falling behind early is a pretty rough road to travel.

He then went seven pitches in a competitive at-bat against Carlos Correa before he either lost concentration, gave up or simply made a bad pitch.
