Chris Sale in his last six starts, has fanned 69 hitters, averaging 11.5 Ks per game during that stretch. But Houston has the second best K ratio in the league as well as the 2nd best HR per AB ratio in the league. At home on a Friday night for a team that is 12-3 SU in their last 15, I'll go with them and trust Miley to hang around in this one as well. I like a tight 4-3 win for Houston tonight and I'll take the UNDER PROP on K's for Sale at -8.5 (+103)!70%

Love the Red Sox in this spot. They got Sale on the mound with some momentum versus a banged up Astros squad that just got spanked by the White Sox. Miley has been better then expected this year but I don't see him getting much run support in this one. look for Boston to take game one of this series.60%

Over the Monster: Red Sox 3, Astros 4: Little League-caliber defense and wasted opportunities
The series opener in Houston was an extremely frustrating one for the Red Sox, who were thoroughly outplayed and never really felt quite as close as they actually were on the scoreboard. They didn't look all that good at anything in this game, particularly very early on. Chris Sale was fine and finished strong, but he wasn't as sharp as he could have been against a very good Astros lineup. Considering the amount of hard contact he allowed he probably could have allowed more than the four runs he did give up. The offense was shut down early by Wade Miley but did get some chances with runners on base.
Fansided: Red Sox lineup gets a boost with return of J.D. Martinez vs Astros
He's back! After missing the last four games with a combination of illness and back soreness, J.D. Martinez will return to the Boston Red Sox lineup for Friday night's series opener in Houston.
Martinez will serve as the designated hitter in the familiar cleanup spot. The Red Sox cycled different players through the DH spot during their four-game series in Toronto, giving a few of their regulars a partial day of rest. His absence led to manager Alex Cora deploying some creative lineups but today's batting order is similar to what we've been accustomed to this season.

Chris Sale / Wade Miley
Rafael Devers is the only Red Sox player who has appeared in every game this season, starting all but two of the team's 50 games. He begins the evening on the bench.
Devers leads all MLB players with 83 batted balls with an exit velocity of 95+ MPH. The next three: Josh Bell, Pirates (81), Jose Abreu, White Sox (77), and Cody Bellinger, Dodgers (76).
Over the Monster: Red Sox at Astros lineup: Southpaws down south
The Red Sox and Astros face each other again down in Texas when Chris Sale and Wade Miley do battle tonight at 8:10 p.m. in H-Town. Good news: J.D. Martinez is back! Better news: It's my five-year anniversary, which means things are hectic around her, but you know the deal: the Sox are the good team, the Astros the bad one.
