ALDS GAME 2 AT A GLANCE
Astros-Indians Game 2 preview: Pivotal game for both teams
he ALDS series between the Astros and Indians will continue Saturday afternoon with Game 2 in Houston. Check back right after the game for a full recap:
When: 3:37 p.m.
Where: Minute Maid Park.
Streaming: TBS App.
Pitching matchup: Gerrit Cole vs. Carlos Carrasco.
Series: Astros lead 1-0.
The breakdown: We will get the chance to watch another strong pitching matchup in Game 2 today, with two 200+ strikeout pitchers going against each other in Cole and Carrasco. This is virtually a must-win game for the Indians, who would have to win three straight if they lose today, while a win for the Astros means they would only need one out of the next three games to move on to the ALCS. An Astros loss would make it a best of three with Cleveland hosting two of those games. The Astros will look to their offense to continue their playoff success at home to back up Cole on the mound.
