Featured Game | Boston Red Sox vs. Houston Astros
Historically, teams that go up 2-1 at the best of seven settings have won the series more than 70% of the time. This makes it a crucial competition.
Urquidy has appeared 20 times during the regular season, posting a 119 ERA and a strike-to-stride ratio of 4.74. This will only mark his second career start in the ALCS. He pitched five two-run innings last October against the Rays in a losing effort.
RodrÃguez has a 100+ ERA and strikeout-to-goals ratio of 3.94 in 32 regular season outings. Despite making the Red Sox pitching squad in 2018, this will be his first career start in the championship round.
We’ll say the Red Sox will be aggressively massaging their pitching staff in a way that will get them a tough one-point victory.
To take: Red Sox 6, Astros 5
