In Game 1 of this year’s American League Championship Series, there will be two starting pitchers who know each other very well squaring off to commence this rematch between AL powerhouses.

Of course, it was in last year’s ALDS when these two clubs first hooked up in postseason play — with Houston easily dispatching the AL East champs en route to ultimately securing their first title in franchise history.

Does a similar outcome await in 2018?
