The ALDS shifts to Cleveland for Game 3 this afternoon with the Astros looking for the sweep. We'll have a full game recap for you right after the final pitch:

When: 12:30 p.m.

Where: Progressive Field, Cleveland.

TV: TBS.

Streaming: TBS App.

Pitching matchup: Dallas Keuchel vs. Mike Clevinger.

Series: Astros lead 2-0.

The breakdown: The Indians find themselves fighting off elimination, while the Astros will have their first playoff game on the road, where they were very strong in the regular season. The Astros will send lefty Dallas Keuchel to the mound, who could cap off an up-and-down year by putting together a solid postseason performance before he hits free agency. The Indians will start Mike Clevinger, a solid starter that will have the benefit of his home crowd behind him. This game will likely have some more offense than the fierce pitching battles of Games 1 and 2, so watch for Houston's offense to try and put things away and hopefully earn some days off for the ALCS.

This week, ESPN released their post-NFL Draft power rankings and lo and behold, the Texans are out of the basement, ranked No. 28. Which is up from No. 32, when the first rankings came out post-free agency.

Another interesting note about the power rankings, the Jets are now behind the Texans after having what was considered to be an all-time great draft haul. Be sure to check out the video as we make sense of these updated rankings, and debate Texans vs Jags, Davis Mills vs. Zach Wilson, and much more!
