It will be Gerrit Cole getting the start for the Astros to oppose Red Sox lefthander David Price. The Astros took the 1-0 lead in this series after their 7-2 victory on Saturday night. Astros were up 3-3 heading into the top of the ninth inning and blew the game open with four runs. Justin Verlander earned the win as the veteran righthander tossed six innings giving up two runs and two hits with six strikeouts. Verlander was not happy about the four walks he allowed. Astros bullpen was outstanding working three innings with no runs allowed and only one hit. Like they did in the Cleveland series the Astros got help from the long ball as Yuli Gurriel and Josh Reddick went deep in the game. Astros had five hits with Gurriel driving in three runs. George Springer drove in a pair of runs in the win.

Lefthander Chris Sale could only pitch four innings in the opener. The veteran allowed two runs with one hit but four walks. It exposed the weakness of the Red Sox which is their relief pitching and their unit surrendered five runs in five innings of work. Boston was held to three hits by Astros pitching.

Astros starter Gerrit Cole is 15-5 on the year with an ERA of 2.88. He earned a victory in the ALDS at home against Cleveland giving up one run and three hits over seven innings of a 3-2 victory. He last faced the Red Sox in early September giving up two runs over six innings of a 6-3 road victory. Team record in Cole’s past seven starts is 7-0.

Davide Price has had his struggles in the postseason. In his ten playoff starts Price has an 0-9 record and team record in those games is 0-10. He faced the Yankees in the ALDS and surrendered three runs with two homers in 1 2/3rd innings of a 6-2 home defeat.
