Boston Red Sox vs. Houston Astros Game 2 Predictions
Boston will have its ace on the mound for Game 2 of the ALCS. Nathan Eovaldi was the best pitcher for the Red Sox in the regular season, and he has been great in the playoffs. Houston will be forced to counter with Luis Garcia since Lance McCullers was left off the ALCS roster with forearm tightness, and that will put them at a disadvantage on Saturday afternoon in the Lone Star State.
The Red Sox have been great on offense throughout the postseason. They have scored 32 runs through five games, propelling them past division rivals New York and Tampa Bay to reach the ALCS. Their performance has been reminiscent of their World Series run three years ago, and they will be able to go back to Fenway Park with home field advantage.
