Carlos Correa leads the Astros with nine hits and five RBI while Alex Bregman and Michael Brantley have combined for 16 hits and eight RBI.

The Astros are 7-3 in their last 10 playoff games and 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Red Sox are 6-0 in their last 6 games as a favorite and 5-1 in their last 6 overall. The over is 6-0 in Astros last 6 overall. The over is 6-0 in Red Sox last 6 overall. The Astros are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

Zack Greinke hasn’t exactly been lights out this season, and he’s pitched just 12.1 innings since September. While well rested, Greinke hasn’t been able to build a rhythm and isn’t exactly the pitcher I want to throw out there with the season pretty much on the line. Pivetta has been hit or miss this season, but he’s allowed just three runs in his last 9.2 innings and is coming off a game where he had seven strikeouts in four frames. Also, the Red Sox offense is on fire all postseason, and it’s starting to feel like they’re a team of destiny a little?

Give me the Red Sox.
