Astros, Red Sox announce starters for first 2 ALCS games

Red Sox analyst Lou Merloni said that there was a tipping issue, evidenced by Boston batters' ability to consistently lay off Severino's sharp-breaking slider.

By winning a club-record 108 games this season, the Red Sox ensured home-field advantage through the postseason. The only show in town thanks to the NHL's decision to move the Bruins-Red Wings game up to 3 p.m., Game 1 will feature Chris Sale going against the Astros' Justin Verlander in a true battle of American League aces.

Kimbrel, who finished with 42 saves during the regular season, went on to struggle in the bottom of the ninth, allowing two runs on one hit and two walks before closing the door on the Yankees' season.

This game will go against the Sunday Night Football showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots.

Emma Baccellieri: Manager Alex Cora seems to have made up his mind here, saying Price will be ready to start Game 2.

After beating the 100-win Yankees, the Red Sox face the 103-victory Astros.

Boston won the AL pennant in four of the six times it opened the Championship Series at Fenway, in 1975, 1986, 2007 and 2013, the last two en route to World Series titles. If Price continues to look more comfortable in a relief role, leave him there, and let Eduardo Rodriguez start Game 4. I think that's what puts everything in perspective.

The victor of the best-of-seven showdown will advance to the World Series.

Notes: 1B Mitch Moreland, who injured his right hamstring in Game 2 against the Yankees while running the bases, participated in batting practice on Thursday. There are certain things they were that I don't like, but just keep it loose and be yourself. "He's OK. I think he slipped on that play, but then he was jumping up and down celebrating, " Cora said.
