The Astros aren’t really mixing much up in this game. There are a few lefty bats against the left-handed Sale, but that shouldn’t make much of an impact. The Red Sox likely won’t leave Sale in there long, especially if he gets shelled early on like in the ALDS vs. the Tampa Bay Rays. Brantley, Tucker and Alvarez are all power lefties.
