Astros win game 1 against the Boston Red Sox!
Spectacular performance from Astros' pitcher Lance McCullers Jr. (7-3, 3.89 ERA) to get the Astros their 36th win of the season against none other than the Boston Red Sox, who lead the MLB with their impressive 39-18 record
McCullers pitched 6 full innings against the Boston Red Sox, striking out 4 toget the win against Drew Pomeranz (1-3, 6.81 ERA), who pitched 5 innings against the Houston Astros and struck out 5
The MVP of this game would have to be Carlos Correa for sure who not only performed impressive plays in the infield (as per usual) but also went deep (left field) on Pomeranz on a fastball up and in and gave the Astros a 2-0 lead early on in the first inning, the rest of the Astros' runs came from a couple of hits that they compiled in the 4th inning
Kenneth Giles (0-1, 4.50 ERA) earned the save for this game, coming in in the 9th inning and striking out the first two batters he faced, walked a batter, allowed at hit, but then got the pop up (that was catched by Jake Marisnick) to end the game.
The Astros continue to hammer the Red Sox (like in the 2017 ALDS), let's hope this stays the same with Chris Sale at the mound tomorrow for the Boston Red Sox, facing Gerrit Cole for the Astros (a picthers duel for sure)
