After falling a game short of making the World Series last year, the Astros have a chance to make it there this year as Game 6 of the ALCS gets underway on Friday.

The Astros seem to have the momentum heading into the game; they’ve won two in a row and put up nine runs in both games. They were also helped by strong pitching performances, specifically by Framber Valdez in Game 5. He threw eight innings of one-run ball, giving up three hits and striking out five.

In Game 6, it will be Luis Garcia on the mound for the Astros and Nathan Eovaldi for the Red Sox in a rematch of Game 2, which Boston won 9-5. Both pitchers struggled in their most recent outings, however. 

Garcia lasted just one inning in Game 2, giving up five earned runs on two hits and three walks, including a grand slam to J.D. Martinez. He hasn’t pitched since then. Eovaldi saw action in Game 4 on Tuesday. 

After pitching well in Game 2 and earning the win (5 1/3 innings, three earned runs), he took the loss in Game 4 when he lasted just two-thirds of an inning in relief and gave up four earned runs on two hits and two walks. Eovaldi claimed he fell victim to bad umpiring by Laz Diaz behind the plate, and that that was part of the reason the Astros were able to mount a comeback capped by a seven-run ninth inning.

The Astros are hoping for a bounceback from Garcia as they try to earn the franchise’s first World Series berth since 2017 and manager Dusty Baker’s first since 2002. The Red Sox, meanwhile, are looking for Eovaldi to return to Game 2 form and tie the series 3-3 to force a decisive Game 7.
