It's the biggest pitching matchup in terms of names so far in the postseason - Chris Sale vs Justin Verlander. The Red Sox vs the Astros best-of-five series begins today in Houston.

Sale and Verlander have faced off six times in the past with Verlander getting the best of things.

But, this is the first time it will be in the postseason, and Sale is with the Sox, and Verlander is with the Astros.

Should make for some high octane drama.
