Bottom of the 3rd: Correa Homers, Astros Lead Sox 2-1

Sale made his postseason debut on Thursday and it was one he will surely want to forget.

Verlander draws the Boston Red Sox and their ace Chris Sale in game one of the best of five American League Division Series.

One thing Pomeranz can do that Sale and the rest of Boston's bullpen in Game 1 couldn't is to not pitch to Astros second baseman Jose Altuve.

When Price entered the game, the Red Sox were down 4-1 and things were about to get much worse. Nunez, who played in just one game since September 9 while dealing with an injury to the same knee, failed to make it to first base and was carried off the field by a Red Sox trainer and Boston manager John Farrell. He improved to (3-0) and lowered his ERA to 0.96 in October after going 5.2 innings allowing 2 hits and just 1 run.

Of course, many wondered about the season-opening opponent Florida State, which was ranked No. 3 at the time of the game. The Crimson Tide opened up the offense a little bit the past couple seasons with Lane Kiffin as offense of coordinator.

David Price temporarily kept the game close with 2.2 brilliant innings, firing 38 pitches, but Eduardo Rodriguez and Addison Reed followed Pomeranz's messy example, allowing four more runs to score in the sixth inning. The Red Sox have shown no power in the series and have been out-homered 6-0 in the first two games, as Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa have had their way with the Boston pitchers. The third homer came in the fifth inning, also off the bat of Altuve.

Right fielder Mookie Betts contributed to the fun with a solo home run in the bottom half of the seventh to make it 6-2 Boston. The 28-year-old went 7-3 with a 3.19 ERA on the road this year and 1-0 with a 1.46 ERA in two starts against the Astros. What a fraud-Oh, he went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored? It took the Red Sox 161 games to clinch the division they had a two game lead in. Despite last year's success, Porcello has struggled this season and in prior playoff appearances, racking up an earned run average of 5.66 over seven postseason starts. They have combined for 12 hits (six home runs, two doubles), 11 runs and 11 RBI. If things go all the way, then Game 5 will bring the series back to Houston for the victor takes all decider next Wednesday.

That said, between these four teams that have so much talent between them, who should you put in your lineup today?

I said it heading into game two, that I thought Boston was done after Houston took Sale to the woodshed, and I'm not changing my tune here.

There have 56 teams down 0-2 in an LDS, and seven of them have won their series. Keuchel will be facing Boston for the first time this year.

Brad Peacock starts for the Astros against Doug Fister. They are the number three seed in the American League and would have to beat the Astros in a best of five series in order to move on to face either the Cleveland Indians or the victor of the American League Wild Card Game. Heading into the series, the pitcher that would start for the third game was up for debate among the media.

Justin Verlander is still on the mound for Houston and he gets the Red Sox in order, 3 up and 3 down. Boston is 7-1 in those eight games and the ERA the lowest ever by a postseason starter (since the start of championship series in 1969) with at least 50 innings.
