Astros prepare for ALDS series with the Red Sox — Sports Fix

Astros' Josh Reddick says he's 'ready to go' for Game 1 of ALDS

Red Sox Baseball

The Astros are asking Houston to Orange Out! Jose Altuve hit.417, Marwin Gonzalez.364, Carlos Beltran.357, Yuli Gurriel.333 and Brian McCann.333 with three homers.

Chris Sale was christened with champagne and beer after the Red Sox won the AL East. "It seemed easy for a while with the Tigers organization, especially with my first year going to the World Series, so, I appreciate ever step of the way now", Verlander said.

The 34-year-old made just five starts with the Astros, but he was the winning pitcher in every one of those games.

"Between watching our team and other teams that were successful in the postseason, if you rely on one thing, if you rely on home runs, good pitching in the postseason prevents home runs for the most part", Britton said. "We're going to embrace that emotion". We had a lot of guys put everything they had on the field the entire season. "And if we don't take advantage of that emotionally or even with the opportunity we have, we'll have regret". Fernando Abad took the loss, falling to 2-1 with a 3.30 ERA this season.

Everything about his season for the Red Sox was superb. That both teams finished in the bottom-five in pinch-hitters used, and that neither likes to issue an intentional walk - though both will play around with the hit-and-run when they deem it worthwhile. Dallas Keuchel gets the ball, and he is 14-5 with a 2.90 ERA and 125 strikeouts this season. "Obviously, I play a position where you hit the deck a lot".

"The records, you can flush".

Then there's the World Series, where plenty of talented National League squads will compete for the title. If he really is as durable as he says he is, Price could propel Boston to the Fall Classic. He had a 3.72 ERA in his time with NY and struck out 59 batters in 65.1 innings.

Deep and powerful bullpens have been a key to playoff success in recent years, as evidenced by the Kansas City Royals (AL pennants in 2014-15) and Cleveland Indians (2016).

3 keys to victory for Broncos against Raiders
We all became fans of Marquette King last season as he captured us with his vibrant personality and fun celebrations on the field. Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian completed 16 of 26 passes for 179 yards, one touchdown and a 94.9 passer rating.

Before we get too excited about the notion of Sale starting Game 4, we should note that Farrell has yet to confirm he would allow his ace to pitch on three days rest. They scored 785 runs this year, good for 10 overall in all of baseball (the Astros were No. 1 with 896 runs). Hinch's club, of course.

"We have got some infield depth that we have to keep because of Pedey and Nunie [versatile infielder Eduardo Nunez, who is dealing with a sprained ligament in his right knee]", Farrell said.

The series shifts to Fenway Park in Boston for Games 3 and 4 on Sunday and Monday.

More importantly, most of the Astros have historically performed poorly against Sale. The Astros bulked up their pitching, but they're the ultimate offensive team, as Houston led Major League Baseball with 896 runs and 1,581 hits.

Sale did not face the Astros during the regular season.

Boston's postseason rotation was collated via free agency and trades, including the man who fronts it.

Remember when Jon Singleton, Jarred Cosart and Mike Foltynewicz were mission critical?

Red Sox in four.

Thank you to Detroit for an incredible 13-seasons, a city that will always be important to me. But first, they must reach the Series this city has only seen once before.
