The home team has not won a game in the American League Championship Series, and the Astros can continue that streak Friday night.

Houston dominated the Rangers in its 10-3 victory at Globe Life Field. The Astros evened up the best-of-seven series after Texas took a 2-0 lead.

It will be the battle of aces as Justin Verlander takes the mound for Houston. The three-time Cy Young winner lost Game 1 of the series after giving up two runs off six hits in 6 2/3 innings. Jordan Montgomery will hope for a repeat of his Game 1 performance where he gave up zero runs in 6 1/3 innings and struck out six.
