Gerrit Cole (13-5) gets the nod to open the series at Fenway Park as the Astros travel to take on the Boston Red Sox in a big three-game series.
Houston has won five in a row behind the bat of Alex Bregman. During the previous 10 game homestand, Bregman hit a scorching .486 with seven doubles, five home runs and 17 RBIs.
With a little over three weeks left in the regular season, the Astros have a 3 1/2 game lead over Oakland in the AL West.
First pitch is slated for 6:10pm CT. Listen on SportsTalk790!
