Lance McCullers was dominant over his 6.2 innings against the White Sox in game one, allowing just four hits and issuing no walks. McCullers allowed just one hit threw six innings, before the Sox started to get to him in the seventh, when the Astros went to the bullpen.  

At the plate, Houston got on the board with an RBI single from Jake Meyers in the second inning, then scored two in the third and tacked on another two runs on a single by Michael Brantley in the fourth. Yordan Alvarez capped off Houston’s scoring with a moonshot of a solo homer to right center in the sixth. Chicago’s lone run came on a Jose Abreu RBI single in the eighth. Abreu went 2-for-4 on the day after dealing with flu-like symptoms earlier in the week.

The White Sox send Lucas Giolito to the hill for game two, the Astros counter with the lefty Framber Valdez. Giolito went 11-9 on the season with a 3.53 ERA. Back on July 17th, he pitched a complete game against the Stros’ allowing just one run on three hits. Valdez is coming off a 11-6 season with a 3.14 ERA. Two of his starts came against Chicago this season. He went 1-1 while allowing seven runs on 13 hits over 13.1 innings of work.

The Astros are 1.5-run favorites against White Sox. The over/under is 8 runs.
