Game Thread no. 143. Red Sox at Houston Astros. Sept 9, 2018, 3:05 CDT

The Astros go for the sweep on national TV against the AL leading Boston Red Sox. Join the fun. Join the discussion.

MLB: Houston Astros at Boston Red Sox Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The Astros have won seven straight, and yet the pesky Oakland A’s remain just 3.5 games behind our Stros. Every game counts in this tough race, but if the A’s had hoped to catch up, it would have been this weekend, as the Astros were on the road against the best team in the AL. Instead the Astros have taken the first two in this series, with good pitching and enough clutch hitting and defense. Tonight the Stros go for the sweep, before heading off to the gentler climes of Detroit Michigan.
