ACTION on the pitchers: TV Blowout - Rickenbach MLB 8* Boston Red Sox Money Line -115 vs Houston Astros @ 8:08 ET - I do not care who pitches here. This is a team-based play. The stats below are from the regular season action. The Red Sox finished 17 games over .500 in home games this season. The Astros were only 7 games above .500 in road games this season. Boston was 18 games above .500 versus right-handed starters this season and Jose Urquidy expected to start for the Astros in this one. Houston only 6 games above .500 versus lefties this season and Eduardo Rodriguez expected to start for Boston in this one. Again, not concerned with the pitchers as like the Red Sox no matter what but Rodriguez was solid in the 2nd half of the season plus off a strong start versus the Rays at Fenway Park last week. Urquidy had his start versus the White Sox last week canceled by rain and he could be rusty here as he finally makes a playoff appearance after two weeks of no game activity. 8* BOSTON -115
