The Red Sox had an off day yesterday coming off a three-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves.
Boston is welcoming an Astros team to town who have won 5 games in a row against the Twins and Angels, and have won 12 out of their last 15.
This will be a battle of heavyweights as the Red Sox have the best home record in major league baseball (48-18) and the Astros have the best away record (47-21).
The Red Sox have the most runs per game and the Astros have the lowest ERA per game.
On the mound for the Red Sox is David Price. Price missed his last start due to taking a hard line drive off his wrist. The Red Sox are 9-0 in Price’s last 9 starts.
On the mound for Astros is Gerrit Cole who has already defeated the Red Sox earlier this season, and has had a very nice first season in Houston. Cole is 13-5 with a 2.86 ERA.
