Start times revealed for first two games of Red Sox-Astros ALDS

"Every pitch he has is a wipeout pitch".

It will be interesting to see how Sale performs under the bright lights of the playoffs. He hates losing, and his stuff is ridiculous: 308 strikeouts in 2017.

The series will get underway Thursday in Houston. No matter who wins, it promises to be memorable. Both pitching staffs have a number of well-known stars, and this isn't a case where the Q scores exceed the on-the-field production by any means.

It is virtually impossible. If the Red Sox are facing elimination in Game 4 then Farrell will presumably be more open to bringing Sale back to pitch early. So, you will have some time to dedicate to just hockey, but you know you want to catch Brady and co.in action as well. Or do you know someone who does? Bear in mind that this is practically.200 lower than their overall 2017 OPS of.823. "I don't think now would be the time to start doing that". No let-up. And their bench is great, too. "We felt like (the bullpen) was the most logical path for him to come back to us".

It was very good, but it has gotten even better. Game 1, on Thursday, is scheduled to start at 3:08 p.m., while game 2, on Friday, will begin at 1:05. He batted.284-10-30 in 58 games and famously hit a game-tying home run off a 102.8-mph fastball against Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman in August.

The Red Sox don't have to set their postseason roster until late Wednesday, so we'll use this projected roster from CBS Boston as our guide. In his postseason career, he is 4-0 with a 2.15 ERA in the ALDS appearances.

However, a healthy Keuchel is a formidable opposing dance partner for him on the mound. Brad Peacock is the other candidate for that slot along with Charlie Morton. It would also really help the Astros if Keuchel is at his best in Game 2. "But you're still looking to evaluate all the way through the final out. He's an unbelievable pitcher. and he's helping our rotation in a big way". Boston will roll out another lefty in game two, Drew Pomeranz, knowing full well that Houston has a record of (21-23) against left-handed starters.

Boston left-hander Chris Sale (17-8, 2.90 ERA) earned the opportunity to be first up in attempting to stymie the powerhouse Houston offense. In 78 innings, he has struck out 85 and walked just 19.

Rick Porcello has been pretty bad all year, while Doug Fister went from awful, to great, back to awful in a short period of time.

The Boston Red Sox made the playoffs for the second consecutive season, clinching the AL East division crown on the second to last day of the regular season.

What are the Astros playing for? . They need him right now. Tyler Clippard pitched the ninth for his fifth save for Houston.

Houston started second baseman Jose Altuve, first baseman Yuli Gurriel, designated hitter Carlos Beltran and shortstop Marwin Gonzalez.

A team which thrived under pressure situations all year now finds itself in an unfamiliar spot, where little is expected of them in situations of the like. "I have been following the Astros my whole life and just to watch them and watch them grow.we just love this team and we are ready to win", Strickland said.

"But to me it's always been Pedroia with the way that he puts the at-bats together, and he has a pretty good career average off of me", Britton chuckled.

Prediction: Astros in five.
