The Astros won their fifth straight game Friday night with a 3-2 victory. Alex Bregman was 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and three RBIs to lead the way. Charlie Morton picked up the win, while Ken Giles earned his 34th save. Mitch Moreland was 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run for the Red Sox. Rafael Devers added an RBI double. Doug Fister gave up three earned runs in 5 1/3 innings to take the loss.

Bet on Astros vs. Red Sox

There is no team hotter in baseball than the Houston Astros right now and they've now managed to win two straight games at Fenway Park. The issue here is McCullers, who has not been at the top of his game since getting injured a few months ago. While both teams are still fighting for position in the AL playoffs race, the Red Sox know they have the Yankees now breathing down their neck with two games to play. A win will clinch the AL East title and with Pomeranz on the mound, we see that happening.
