Fantasy Impact

In an unorthodox move, the Astros used their best starter out of relief to take down the Red Sox at Fenway Park. The move initially appeared to backfire, as Andrew Benintendi hit a two-run homer off Verlander as soon as he came in the game. However, the Houston bats rallied and Verlander was able to hold off further trouble. He'll resume starting in the ALCS against the winner of Cleveland and New York.
