2018 American League Championship Series: Astros vs. Red Sox Game 2, 6 p.m. CT

The Astros look to go up two games to none.

The Astros blew open a close game in the ninth inning Saturday at Fenway Park and took a 1-0 lead in the ALCS. At least from the first game, they looked like the better team. But this series could easily go the distance.

The Astros and Red Sox combined for just eight hits Saturday — along with 13 walks and three hit batters. No wonder the game ran four hours and three minutes.

Note below the earlier starting time for tonight’s Game 2.

Pitching matchups:

Gerrit Cole (Astros) vs. David Price (Red Sox)

Fun pitching matchup fact:

A cool note from the great research minds at @MLBNetwork:#ALCS Game 2 will be the first postseason starting-pitching matchup ever between two No. 1 overall picks in the draft:

David Price (2007 No. 1 pick) vs. Gerrit Cole (2011 No. 1 pick).#RedSox #Astros
