RHP Doug Fister (12-12, 4.42 ERA, 1.40 WHIP) vs. LHP James Paxton (5-7, 3.72 ERA, 1.30 WHIP)
The Houston Astros are technically in the AL Wild Card race. It was a miracle but to even have a chance they have to win all four games.
It will be a tough task with Doug Fister on the mound. Fister is 4-6 with a 5.70 ERA in 14 starts since the All-Star break. He is 0-3 with a 10.38 ERA in his last five starts. But the key will be for Fister to have a clean game through the first two rounds of the lineup aka the Brad Peacock plan.
James Paxton is 0-2 with a 4.74 ERA in three career starts against the Astros. The Astros won 2-1 in his previous start against Houston.
