Fenway Park will be rocking this weekend as the Astros tangle with the Boston Red Sox in a pivotal four-game series to close out the regular season.
Adding to the intrigue is the fact that both teams are ticketed for the postseason—and may in fact face one another in the first round of the playoffs, pending Houston’s ability to pass the Cleveland Indians in the standings and take the #1 overall seed. The Astros are currently one game behind Cleveland with four left to play. Unless they close that gap over the weekend and finish with a better overall record, they’ll take the #2 seed and face the Red Sox in round one. So tonight’s game may very well be the first of nine consecutive matchups between the two powerhouse teams.
