It’s a Friday afternoon in October filled with baseball! The Astros and Indians have 1-0 leads in their series and both teams took Game 1 decisively over their opponents.
Given the pitching matchups this afternoon, those could easily become 2-0 leads before the N.L. teams even throw their first pitches this evening.
Game time for Red Sox/Astros: 1 p.m. CT. TV: FS1. Announcers: Joe Davis, A.J. Pierzynski, Jon Paul Morosi and David Cone.
Game time for Yankees/Indians: 4 p.m. CT. TV: MLB Network. Announcers: Joe Buck, John Smoltz, Tom Verducci and Ken Rosenthal.
Drew Pomeranz (Red Sox) vs. Dallas Keuchel (Astros)
CC Sabathia (Yankees) vs. Corey Kluber (Indians)
(Note: Going forward, I am going to link to the “classic” Gameday here because MLB.com broke the links I used to use to get to their “new” Gameday. If you click on this link, you can then click on “New Gameday” at the bottom of the page to get to the updated version. Note that the “classic” Gameday won’t load until just before game time.)
