The Astros will carry a five-game winning streak into Fenway after a day off to travel on Thursday. They’ve got a 3.5-game lead over Oakland in the AL West, in their quest to avoid the wild card game in the American League.
Gerrit Cole will take the mound a day before his 28th birthday. He’s not going to win a Cy Young his first season in the AL but he’s in the running and will probably end up with a top-5 finish.
The highlights: a career-best 12.4 strikeouts per nine innings and a 139 ERA+. He struck out at least eleven in his first three and four of his six April starts. Will he have the gas in the playoffs? That’s what I’m not quite sure about.
Boston Red Sox
Brandon Phillips made his 2018 and Red Sox debut on Wednesday afternoon, his 17th season as a big leaguer. It wasn’t just a ho-hum performance either. He scored three times, including the game-winning run when he hit a go-ahead two-run home run in the ninth inning of an 8–7 win.
Boston completed the sweep of Atlanta by winning a game against Mike Foltynewicz when Mookie Betts, JD Martinez and Xander Bogaerts got the day off.
They didn’t win it against Foltynewicz, rather Atlanta’s depleted bullpen, but it was a win all the same. Boston has the day off on Thursday and then has a chance to reach 100 wins with a sweep at home against Houston this weekend.
That may not be likely but it looks like 110 wins are within reach for the Sox.
