Gamethread: Astros at Red Sox, ALCS Game 1

Old friend Chris Sale tries to get Boston off to a strong start toward the World Series

MLB: ALCS-Houston Astros at Boston Red Sox
Tossup: Seems like this series between 100-win teams is, predictably enough, too close to call.

Houston Astros at Boston Red Sox, ALCS Game 1 (7:09 CT, TBS)

No offense to the National League, but this right here is the World Series.

Chris Sale takes the bump for Game 1. Must games are a little overplayed, but Boston really needs to pocket wins in every Sale start; it’s hard to see a rotation advantage they have otherwise.
