ALDS Game 3 Open Thread: Royals at Astros

New, comments

A pivotal game three takes form today at Minute Maid Park.

In case you haven't heard, Dallas Keuchel is good at home. At least, he was in the regular season.

He's 0-0 in the playoffs at home. The last time the Royals faced him, they smacked him around for five runs. Edinson Volquez has never lost in his career (6-0) at Minute Maid Park. Are you sure that you want to pencil this in as a loss for the defending AL champions?

The Royals will throw out the same lineup as they did in the first two games of the series. The Astros will start Carlos Gomez, their trade-deadline acquisition who has yet to make a start in the series due to a rib problem.

S'go, Royals. Take the lead in this series.
