Key Matchups to Watch:

Jose Altuve vs. Chris Sale:

The Astros’ Second Baseman has had very solid success against the Red Sox ace. Despite his success, he’s never faced the postseason version of the ace.

Mookie Betts vs. Justin Verlander:

The Red Sox outfielder has had very little success against the former Tigers’ ace. Verlander has been fantastic since heading to Houston. In order for the Red Sox to have success today, Mookie MUST have a solid game.
