Houston Astros at Boston Red Sox, 8:08 p.m. on FS1
ALCS Game 3, series tied 1-1
HOU: RHP José Urquidy (0-0, 0.00 ERA)
BOS: LHP Eduardo Rodríguez (0-1, 5.40 ERA)
Urquidy was supposed to start in the ALDS but got skipped due to a rainout. Rodríguez, meanwhile, has only lasted 6 2/3 innings over two ALDS starts. The Astros knocked Rodríguez around for six runs in both of his two regular-season starts against them, so they could be in a position to reclaim home-field advantage.
