Verlander set for opener, Keuchel Game 2

HOUSTON (AP) The Houston Astros will start Justin Verlander in Game 1 of the AL Division Series against Chris Sale and the Boston Red Sox on Thursday.

Manager A.J. Hinch announced the decision Tuesday on SiriusXM radio, adding that left-hander Dallas Keuchel, who won the AL Cy Young in 2015, will start Game 2 on Friday. The Red Sox haven't announced their Game 2 starter.

Verlander has been at his best since being acquired in a trade from the Detroit Tigers on Aug. 31. He's 5-0 with a 1.06 ERA in five starts since the trade.
