After a somewhat frustrating opening game to this ALCS, the Red Sox came back out on Saturday and immediately set the tone for what was a relatively easy win in Game Two to even up the series. Now the Red Sox and Astros head to Boston to play three games in as many days, starting with Game Three on Monday.
First Pitch Time and Place
8:08 PM ET; Fenway Park; Boston, Massachusetts
Eduardo Rodriguez vs. José Urquidy
The Red Sox pitching staff is in better shape than Houston’s right now after the latter had two quick outings, but we know things can shift quickly in the postseason. Rodriguez has struggled twice against Houston this year, and this is an Astros team that handles lefties well in general. Rodriguez will have to be at his best to keep this team at bay. Over on the other side, Urquidy is yet another guy Red Sox batters had a tough time against earlier this year. They were able to get the other two out early (Garcia left due to injury, but looked like he was set for an early exit either way), and will look to do the same against another good young Astros starter.
