Red Sox and Astros look to cash sixth straight over in ALCS Game 6
Fri, Oct 22nd 7:26am EDT
The over/under for Game 6 is nine runs, per BettingPros consensus odds. Houston's bats exploded at precisely the right time in Games 4 and 5. The Astros, at one point, scored 15 unanswered runs, with the last eight runs of Game 4 and the first seven runs of Game 5. Boston's offense is reeling after batting .131 as a team in their last two games, and they are 0-for-13 in their previous 13 at-bats with runners in scoring position. The Red Sox are 17-7 in 24 playoff games under manager Alex Cora. Before their Game 5 loss, they had never lost back-to-back postseason games with Cora as manager and had a run differential of +32 in those games. Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi. was rocked in a relief performance in Game 4, allowing four earned runs in 0.2 innings. However, though that appearance was similar to a bullpen session, it was a tough ask for Eovaldi to break from his usual routine and get warm much more quickly than when he prepared to start a game. Aside from that rough relief outing, Eovaldi is 2-0 this postseason and has allowed an OBA of .200. Eovaldi is opposed by Houston's Luis Garcia, who left after the first inning of his Game 2 start with a knee strain.
