The defending Wolrd Series champion Astros will be sending Gerrit Cole to the mound for his fourth career postseason start and first in the AL. He went 15-5 this season and posted a 2.88 ERA to go with 276 strikeouts. This was the third season in his career he pitched at least 200 innings and the second time he was named an All-Star. Saturday will be Cole's first postseason game since he gave up four runs in five innings in a loss to the Cubs in the NL wild card in 2015.

Carrasco went 5 2/3 innings and allowed only three hits and three walks while picking up seven strikeouts, but Cleveland lost the game 1-0. This season Carrasco has gone 17-10 with a 3.38 ERA. His 231 strikeouts were a career high and his 192 innings pitched were the second highest mark of his career.

After this contest, the series will pivot to Cleveland for Game 3 on Monday, Oct. 8.
