With several strong options at pitcher, AL manager Ned Yost and NL counterpart Bruce Bochy just named their respective team’s starter. Dallas Keuchel will open up the game against Zack Greinke, although they will most likely only pitch one inning apiece.
Keuchel leads the AL in wins (11) and innings pitched (137.1) as the ace of one of the MLB’s most surprising team. On the opposite side, Greinke continues his dominance with the Dodgers, maintaining an MLB-best 1.39 ERA and 17 quality starts. With such great pitchers on the mound, the hitters will certainly have plenty to deal with. Greinke hasn’t allowed a run in 35.2 innings, so let’s see if the AL can push anything across him.
