Titans collide in ‘semi-finals’
The World Series champions Houston Astros launch their pursuit of another American League title at 7am on Sunday (Thailand time) against the Red Sox in a clash of the two best teams in baseball.
The Astros won a club-record 103 games in the regular season - but they still couldn’t match the major leagueleading 108 games won by the Red Sox.
The ALCS (semi-final) marks just the third time since the wild card round was introduced in 1995 that the top two regular-season teams will meet in a league championship series.
The Astros appear to have the edge in pitching and have ace Justin Verlander on the mound in game one.
The National League Championship Series begins at 7am Saturday (Thailand time) and features two of the hottest teams in baseball: the Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers.
