Jonathan Daniel/Getty ImagesThe NLDS kicked off on Thursday Wade Boggs Jersey , with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers jumping out to an early 1-0 lead in their respective series.Now it's time for Game 1 from the two ALDS matchups.The New York Yankees' victory over the Oakland Athletics set up a meeting with the rival Boston Red Sox, while the Houston Astros and Cleveland Indians will meet on the other side of the bracket in a battle of stacked rotations and potent offenses.Ahead is a full preview of what to expect on Friday, complete with all the pertinent TV and streaming information:Friday's ScheduleCleveland Indians at Houston Astros, 2:05 p.m. ET (TBS)New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox, 7:32 p.m. ET (TBS)All postseason games can be live-streamed at PreviewIndians vs. AstrosJustin VerlanderPatrick McDermott/Getty ImagesThis game will feature two of the game's best starting pitchers, with Corey Kluber (20-7, 2.89 ERA, 222 K) toeing the rubber for the Indians and Justin Verlander (16-9, 2.52 ERA , 290 K) on the hill for the Astros.The Astros won the season series 4-3, with both series coming back in May.Kluber picked up the win on May 19, allowing six hits and two earned runs while striking out 10 over seven strong innings. He was equally impressive less than a week later on May 25, when he scattered seven hits over 6.1 scoreless innings in a no-decision.The Indians missed Verlander this year, but they saw plenty of him in past seasons while he was pitching for the Detroit Tigers.Utility man Marwin Gonzalez is 9-for-20 with two home runs against Kluber in his career, as he's had far and away the most success against him of any current Astros player.The Indians' Michael Brantley has seen a ton of Verlander, going 22-for-76 (.289 BA) with two doubles and a triple, as the two shared the AL Central division for years.Francisco Lindor (10-for-29, 2B Pedro Martinez Jersey , 3B, HR), Jose Ramirez (11-for-27, 3 2B, 2 HR) and Josh Donaldson (6-for-18, 1 2B) all have strong numbers against Verlander as well.With both teams featuring stacked rotations, a Game 1 victory with their aces on the mound doesn't carry quite as much weight as it would for most teams, but there's still a distinct advantage to jumping out to an early lead.Yankees vs. Red SoxChris SaleJason Miller/Getty ImagesThe Red Sox won the season series between these two rivals 10-9, but it was the Yankees who came out on top both times they met in September.The Yankees will turn to deadline-addition J.A. Happ (7-0 Hanley Ramirez Jersey , 2.69 ERA, 63 K in 10 starts following a trade from the Toronto Blue Jays) for the Game 1 start, while the Red Sox will send out ace Chris Sale (12-4, 2.11 ERA, 237 K).Look for Steve Pearce to be penciled into the Red Sox lineup somewhere. The veteran has absolutely worn out Happ in his career, going 11-for-32 with two doubles, six home runs and 16 RBI.Mookie Betts and Ian Kinsler also have two home runs each off Happ.Sale has held active Yankees hitters to a .193/.243/.265 line with 67 strikeouts in 166 at-bats.Aaron Judge has taken him deep once, but he's also fanned 13 times in 18 at-bats. Aaron Hicks has enjoyed the most success, with an 8-for-25 track record that includes a pair of doubles.These two teams have met three other times in the postseason.The Yankees bested the Red Sox in four games in the 1999ALCS. The 2003ALCS belonged to the Yankees as well Bill Lee Jersey , as it provided the memorable Pedro Martinez vs. Don Zimmer "fight" and Aaron Boone's walk-off home run. And of course, there is the 2004 ALCS, in which the Red Sox pulled off the greatest comeback in MLB history after falling behind 3-0 in the series.All stats courtesy of Baseball Reference, unless otherwise noted. Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg will make his first start since July 20 on Wednesday against the Philadelphia Phillies, according to Jamal Collier of has been on the disabled list with a pinched nerve in his neck. This followed a shoulder injury that had earlier landed him on the DL for over a month.In his only start since June 8, he allowed six earned runs in 4.2 innings.Strasburg has a 6-7 record overall this year, producing a 3.90 ERA that would be the worst for any season in his career.However, he is back on the mound for a key series against the Phillies, a team that currently holds one of the two wild-card spots in the National League. Washington entered Sunday six games out of the playoffs with a 62-62 record."Credit to Stras that he got himself ready to pitch for us Xander Bogaerts Jersey , and got the opportunity to go up against a team we're trying to catch," manager Dave Martinez said. "He's been working diligently to get ready and he feels good. It's nice to go into that series with our three best pitchers."Max Scherzer and Tanner Roark will also start in the series.Injuries have been a problem for Strasburg throughout his career, and he has only topped 200 innings once in nine seasons in the majors. However, the 30-year-old will hope he can remain on the field for the remainder of the year.
