The ALDS started on Monday and the Astros are in position to sweep on Wednesday.
After taking a 2–0 lead with a 5–2 victory on Tuesday, Houston turns to Jose Urquidy to finish off the A’s.
Oakland won the division by a wide margin over Houston in the regular season — seven games in just a schedule of sixty.
Unless it can reel off three consecutive victories, all that will be for not.
The Athletics have not been impressive since losing Matt Chapman, which was to be expected. The energy has been flat and that affects nearly every body on the roster.
After Chris Bassitt and Sean Manaea started the first two games for Oakland, Game 3’s starter is unknown.
It could be Mike Fiers, who started the third game against Chicago at the end of last week. It could also be Jesus Luzardo, the talented left-hander who got knocked around a bit in his first postseason start in Game 1 of the Wild Card against the White Sox.
The biggest reason the Astros have not lost yet this postseason has been their young pitching rising to the occasion.
They gave up two runs in eighteen innings against the Twins in the Wild Card. Then, after Lance McCullers gave up five runs in four innings in his first postseason action of 2020 in Game 1, Houston’s bullpen gave up nothing in the final five frames.
Framber Valdez has given up a total of seven hits and two runs in twelve postseason innings. The trio of Christian Javier, Enoli Paredes and Ryan Pressley have thrown ten shutout innings.
Wednesday will be Jose Urquidy’s chance to shine. He threw four-and-a-third innings of two-hit, one-run ball against the Twins and draws the Game 3 start with Zack Greinke shelved.
He gave up two hits and two runs in six innings the only time he faced Oakland in the regular year.
