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.
