The magic number is two, which means the Red Sox could wrap up the AL East any day now with a little help from the Yankees. The Astros come to town fighting for the No. 1 seed in the AL playoffs, which means they won’t just roll over and let the Sox win, which is too bad for us, as Red Sox fans. Brad Peacock gets the start for Houston, while Eduardo Rodriguez will go for Boston. Mookie Betts is back after his wrist injury scare.

Here are the full lineups:
