Boston won Game 4 against Tampa Bay to take home the series win. The Red Sox sport a great pitching staff and an offense capable of putting up runs in bunches.

The Astros have been hitting the ball extremely well entering the series against Boston and feature a strong pitching staff of their own, though they will be without ace Lance McCullers Jr., who was left off the roster for the ALCS due to injury.

The Red Sox are set to start Chris Sale on the mound in the series opener. For the Astros, Framber Valdez will get the starting nod. These two pitchers are both capable of shutdown performances, so the offenses will need to come ready to play.

Regional restrictions may apply.
