Justin Verlander allowed four runs over 5 1/3 innings with six strikeouts in a victory over the Athletics on Sunday.
Verlander allowed seven hits, and unfortunately for him, three of those hits were homers by the powerful Oakland lineup. The veteran right-hander has shown flashes of brilliance as of late (25 strikeouts in starts against Colorado and Los Angeles), but there have been some clunkers, and this was not him at his best. It’s still been a quality year for Verlander, with a 2.65 ERA and an impressive 223 strikeouts in just under 170 innings. He’ll be on the hill again on Saturday against the Angels. Aug 19 - 7:19 PM

Keuchel is the obvious choice with Justin Verlander having pitched on Friday. He will be taking the ball on an extra day of rest when he opposes Clayton Kershaw at Dodger Stadium, while Verlander will go in Game 2 Wednesday on regular rest. The Dodgers have not announced who will pitch for them in Game 2, but it will likely be Rich Hill.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch announced Wednesday that Dallas Keuchel will start Game 1 of the ALCS.

Justin Verlander will follow him in Game 2 of the ALCS. Keuchel worked 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball in his one ALDS start against the Red Sox, striking out seven batters and yielding just three hits. Houston will either be matched up against the Indians or Yankees in the best-of-seven American League Championship Series. Those teams are playing a winner-advances ALDS Game 5 on Wednesday night at Cleveland's Progressive Field.
