The Astros reversed momentum in this American League Championship Series after the Red Sox offense looked absolutely unstoppable in Games 2 and 3. Boston scored 21 combined runs in those games to take the lead in the series, but In Games 4 and 5, the Astros have limited the Red Sox to three total runs to gain a 3-2 series lead.
How to watch Boston Red Sox vs. Houston Astros:
Game date: October 22, 2021
Game time: 8 pm Eastern Time
TV: fox sports 1
The Astros’ offense has exploded in the last two games in Boston, scoring 18 runs. Houston shut down Boston’s offense, and now the Red Sox will have to do the same as this series returns to Texas.
The Red Sox will start Nathan Eovaldi in Game 6. Boston manager Alex Cora led Eovaldi into the ninth inning of Game 4 when the score was tied 2-2. That move quickly fell through when the Astros won 9-2.
The Astros will start rookie Luis Garcia. Left Game 2 early with knee pain. He has only pitched 3.2 innings this postseason, but he had a solid regular season, going 11–8 with a 3.30 ERA.
This is still a series for anyone entering Game 6 on Friday. Can the Red Sox take her to Game 7 or will the Astros shut it down?
