The Boston Red Sox and the Houston Astros will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at Minute Maid Park.

Drew Pomeranz will be the starting pitcher for the Red Sox on this day. Left hander Pomeranz is 17-6 this season with a 3.32 ERA.

It’ll be Dallas Keuchel toeing the rubber for the Astros in this contest. Left hander Keuchel is 14-5 with a 2.90 ERA so far this season.

Pomeranz won three of his last four decisions during the regular season and gave up fewer than two runs in three of his final four appearances. The 28-year-old went 7-3 with a 3.19 ERA on the road this year and 1-0 with a 1.46 ERA in two starts against the Astros. Carlos Correa (3-for-5) and Jake Marisnick (4-for-12, two homers) have caused plenty of trouble for Pomeranz, who is 2-2 with a 3.69 ERA in 12 career games (seven starts) versus Houston.

Keuchel finished the regular season strong, limiting his final three opponents and seven of the last nine to fewer than three earned runs. The 29-year-old Tulsa native is 36-20 all-time at Minute Maid Park, including 6-2 with a 1.64 ERA this year, and went 2-0 there in the 2015 postseason. Ramirez is 2-for-2 while Betts and Xander Bogaerts each have homered versus Keuchel, who is 0-1 with a 9.88 ERA in three career appearances (two starts) against Boston.

Oddsmakers opened the Astros as -165-moneyline favorites versus the Red Sox, while the game’s total opened at 8.

Jose Altuve looks for another memorable performance as his Houston Astros vie for a 2-0 lead in the American League Division Series on Friday afternoon against the visiting Boston Red Sox. Altuve, the AL batting champion three of the last four years, including 2017, launched three solo homers in the series opener on Thursday as the Astros posted an 8-2 victory after taking three of four at Boston to end the regular season.

Altuve went 10-for-24 with one blast against the Red Sox in the regular season on the way to a career-high .346 overall batting average, a .410 on-base percentage, 24 homers and 81 RBIs. Altuve is 7-for-17 with a double and a walk versus Boston’s scheduled starter Drew Pomeranz, who finished the regular season strong and will face 2015 AL Cy Young Award winner Dallas Keuchel on Friday. Slugger Hanley Ramirez recorded a pair of hits in the opener after coming on when Eduardo Nunez suffered a knee injury, while Mookie Betts and Sandy Leon also notched two hits apiece as the Red Sox lost their fourth consecutive postseason contest after being swept by Cleveland in the last year’s ALDS. Boston will need more from Dustin Pedroia, who went 0-for-3 with a walk on Thursday and was 3-for-36 to end the regular season while hampered by a lingering knee injury.

Last time out for Houston, they were a 8-2 winner as they battled the Red Sox on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Astros at -130 were rewarded, while the 10 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Boston lost its last outing, a 8-2 result against the Astros on October 05. Bettors who backed the Astros at -130 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (10) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
