Astros ready for Rays in Game 1 of the ALCS
Game 1 of the best-of-seven series between Houston and Tampa Bay is today at 6:37pm CT at Petco Park in San Diego. The game will air on TBS. Framber Valdez gets the start for the Astros against Tampa Bay’s Blake Snell. The Astros beat the Rays in five games in last year’s ALDS, but the two teams did not play each other during the 2020 regular season.
The Astros brushed aside a 29-31 regular season to sweep the Twins in the AL Wild Card Series and overwhelmed the A’s in four games in the ALDS at Dodger Stadium, capped by Thursday’s 11-6 win.
Tampa Bay won 40 games during the regular season — the most in the AL — and is making its first ALCS appearance since the 2008 season, when it lost in the World Series to the Phillies.
