The schedule for Sunday includes two games 3 of the American League Division Series, with the scenes shifting to Chicago and Boston.
Houston Astros @ Chicago White Sox
Astros main series, 2-0
Regardless of what the bottom line indicated, Game 2 of this series was actually closer than you might think. That was until the Astros pulled away in seventh place after jumping on Craig Kimbrel for a crooked spot.
Framber Valdez and Lucas Guolito hit 4⅓ innings each, allowing 4 deserved runs, but it was the walks that pursued the latter, five to be precise. Valdez had his problems with hits and allowed a total of seven.
The White Sox now have to win the next three to move forward, but they have to survive to fight another day in Game 3 and all players are on deck. This team won a division title in one of the weakest baseball games and is now faced with a difficult situation.
Tampa Bay Rays @ Boston Red Sox
Series tied, 1-1
This Red Sox team showed a lot of resilience after the Rays put down five runs against Chris Sale in the first inning, something that had never happened against the left-handed in his entire career.
Kiké Hernández had another memorable postseason game. Some of you may remember his three homers night to win the 2017 NLCS for the Dodgers in Chicago. This time, he became the first Red Sox player to score four extra base hits in the same postseason game.
Nathan Eovaldi takes the hill for the first time in the series on Sunday and will attempt to lead Boston 2-1 ahead of favorites Tampa Bay Rays.
