The Astros banged out 12 hits and walked four times with Alex Bregman launching a solo homer and scoring twice while Marwin Gonzalez went 4-4 with two runs driven in.
Dallas Keuchel toes the rubber at Cleveland in game three of the ALDS on Monday. Keuchel has made 34 starts and has accumulated a 12-11 record with a 3.74 ERA.
The Cleveland Indians are in desperation mode after Saturday’s loss at Houston. Cleveland never got their offense untracked and starter Carlos Carrasco took the loss with a pair of runs plated over 5.1 innings while Trevor Bauer surrendered a solo homer.
The Indians offense consisted of three hits and a pair of bases on balls with Francisco Lindor connecting on a solo bomb. Cleveland saw Edwin Encarnacon reach base twice on a single and walk while Melky Cabrera singled.
Cleveland will be sending Mike Clevinger to the mound to oppose Houston on Monday. Clevinger has been dependable with a 13-8 record and 3.02 ERA over 32 starts.
Keuchel is certainly not my first choice on the mound but he is capable and the Astros offense is more then capable...
