The Red Sox can clinch a spot in the World Series with a win over the Astros in Houston on Thursday night. Boston has taken both games at Minute Maid Park thus far and has scored 23 runs over the last three games.
Scoring eight runs will be pretty tough Thursday considering the Red Sox will be facing Justin Verlander.
