Coming off of the franchise’s first World Series victory, the Houston Astros picked up where they left off. They sit at the top of the AL West and have proven that they can win against any opponent. That success has been predicated on the Astros’ top pitching rotation, which leads the Majors in ERA (2.58) and Quality Starts (40).

Lance McCullers Jr. is set to take the mound for the Astros in the opening game against the Sox.

As great as the Astros have been to open the season, Boston has been even better. They own the best record in the MLB and have been lethal on the road (19-9). Despite being up against the defending champs, Boston will look to flex their muscles and challenge the Astros at home.
