To no surprise, Red Sox manager John Farrell announced on Tuesday that Drew Pomeranz would be the team’s Game 2 starter against the Houston Astros in the American League Division Series, which starts Thursday.
Pomeranz finished 17-6 with a 3.32 ERA. He threw six shutout innings against the Astros on Saturday before giving up a single that led to a run in the seventh inning. Current Astros players are hitting .245 with a .714 OPS off Pomeranz in their careers.
As for who will start Games 3 and 4 of the series, Farrell is keeping his cards face down.
