The Red Sox are playing their best baseball of the season right now, but they are going to be tested coming up like they haven’t been so far this year. They have a tough schedule looking ahead that is also combined with a stretch of 33 games in 33 days. That stretch starts with a series against the MLB-best Astros, and that series starts tonight. Boston will send Rick Porcello to the mound to start this 2018 ALCS rematch as Houston counters with Gerrit Cole. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 PM ET, and this will be your space to discuss the action.

How to Watch

You can watch locally on NESN as well as on the new cord-cutters app FuboTV, which does carry NESN for those in the local market. For those who are out of market, the game will be broadcast on MLB Network.
