The Houston Astros currently possess the best record in Major League Baseball, and can add to their resume with a resounding road sweep of the Boston Red Sox on Sunday. That would be Astros' 11th straight victory, but Boston would like to avoid losing their fourth game in their last five tries.
How to Live Stream Astros-Red Sox Game 3
First pitch is scheduled at 1:05 p.m. ET from Fenway Park. The game can be seen on NESN and AT&T SportsNet Southwest, with live streams also available on the MLB streams subreddit.
Wade Miley will be on the bump looking to capture the sweep for Houston, having recorded victories in each of his last three appearances. His last start on May 14 was a bit rocky, however, as he allowed seven hits and four earned runs over six innings against the Detroit Tigers, albeit in a winning effort. Miley's ERA stands at 3.51 entering the matinee, to go along with his rock solid 1.15 WHIP.
Red Sox Lineup
Chris Sale will pitch Sunday for Boston, in what he hopes is another small but steady step toward his return to dominance. His 4.24 ERA is still a bit of a concern, but his last six outings have lowered that figure following his dreadful start to 2019. Sale's 1.02 WHIP is a better measure of his current, red-hot form. His last start came on May 14 when he allowed two earned runs over seven innings in a record-setting 17-strikeout performance against the Rockies, with a bad bullpen day taking away the win.
The Astros fly back to the Lone Star State after Sunday's game to begin a 10-game homestand, with a four-game series against the White Sox beginning Monday. Boston has its own four-game series as well this week, heading north of the border to take on the Blue Jays. The Red Sox and Astros meet again for another three-game series on Friday at Minute Maid Park, so a win today for Boston will be imperative to avoid falling far behind the AL powerhouse.
