This American League showdown includes two of the top pitchers in baseball.
The Houston Astros have so much potential with the roster they have, they look to get rolling.
The Boston Red Sox look to stay hot at the plate, and get Price some insurance.
The Houston Astros have struggled big time this season thus far.
The only bright spot that has stood on this team is the middle infield, which could be baseball’s best. Jose Altuve is hitting very well for another season in a row. He is hitting .321 on the year with 15 doubles and 9 dingers, all leading the team in those categories.
Colby Rasmus is leading this offense in runs batted in, also hitting for .236 and 7 home runs. The young shortstop Carlos Correa is hitting a firm .275 on this young season.
The Astros send reigning Cy Young winner Dallas Keuchel to the mound, although he has struggled thus far. Keuchel is currently 2-4 with a 4.70 E.R.A. and 38 strike outs.
He last appeared against Seattle where he served a no decision. Keuchel threw a solid 7 innings, only giving up 2 earned runs, striking out 8 Mariners but giving up 2 home runs.
Keuchel looks to get some run support and turn things around against Boston.
Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox have been absolutely en fuego at the plate this year, with multiple people hitting above .300. The Sox are led in average by Travis Shaw.
Shaw is hitting .322 with 17 extra base hits and 23 runs batted in. David Ortiz is having a stellar last season in the bigs. Big Papi is hitting .321 with a teams best 9 home runs and 29 RBI’s.
The veteran David Pedroia leads the team in hits with 43, carrying a .321 average.
David Price is taking the mound for the Red Sox, and he has been good on the year, mainly because he has received run support. Price currently is 4-1 carrying a 6.75 E.R.A and 53 strike outs.
He last appeared in a loss in New York against the rival Yankees. Price threw only 4.2 innings where he gave up 6 earned runs while scattering 7 hits and only striking out 4 batters.
Price looks to get back on the road in this game with the astros.

Free Houston Astros vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
I look for this game to be low scoring. Keuchel has not received the run support that he deserves this season, which makes it tough on any pitcher. It’s hard for that club to expect him to win 2-1 ball games all year.
Look for Keuchel to keep this Red Sox lineup on their toes throughout this game. On the other side, look for Price to dominate this lineup on the mound. Getting by Altuve and Correa, this lineup does not scare many opposing pitchers.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Red Sox -150
Look for Boston to prevail in this one, but it will be a low scoring pitchers duel.
