The American League Division Series continues on Saturday with both games taking place. The first one to take place is at Minute Maid Park when the Houston Astros and the Cleveland Indians face off.
The Astros won four of the seven games played between the two teams this year during the regular season. In game one it was all the Astros with them coming out with a victory by a final score of 7-2.
The Cleveland Indians have the worst record of any American League team, but this is a team that has a ton of playoff experience.
In game one they ran into a really good pitcher in Justin Verlander and by the time they could get to him, it was too late.
The chances are not going to get any easier in this game, so they are probably going to need to do a better job of manufacture runs.
On the mound for the Indians is Carlos Carrasco who comes into this game with a 17-10 record and ERA of 3.38. Carrasco has actually been better on the road coming into this game with an ERA of 8-6 and 2.96 ERA.
In this game they are going to need to be better. If he struggles in this game they are going to have real trouble winning this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Houston Astros who won the World Series last year and have a target on their back.
The Astros star last year was Carlos Correa but he has really struggled the last few months and he really is the X-factor in this series and in the playoffs.
He struggled in game one going 0-4 but the team was still able to overcome it, with the rest of the offense coming in hot.
Alex Bregman was the star having two hits including a home run, and he is looking like he is ready to have a big series.
On the mound for the Astros is Gerrit Cole who has been good this year coming into this game with a 15-5 record and an ERA of 2.88.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
This one is tough. This is too great pitchers who both teams feel like can carry them to where they need to go to but I think the Astros have a slight advantage.
