When was the last time Hinch used the same lineup in consecutive games?

per espn:

Keuchel is the most extreme ground ball starter in the game with a 68 percent ground ball rate, but the Red Sox were third in the majors in OPS against Baseball-Reference.com designation of ground ball pitchers (compared to 25th against fly ball pitchers).  and

During the regular season, Altuve hit .381/.441/.629 against fastballs in the upper half of the zone. Pomeranz throws his fastball in the upper half 74 percent of the time. So ...
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Still boggles my mind that only in this lineup would Marwin bat 8th.

This arrangement worked out pretty well yesterday.  Let's roll.

And that it makes perfect sense he's batting 8.

By the way, I think legally MLB requires us to refer to this game as ALDS Game 2 -Astros vs. Red Sox, sponsored by Doosan.

 Drove in this morning, standing in line at shake shack now.

 I'll be in CB section 103, sitting at the bar/table thing in seat 8.

OWA'ers here feel free to come by and throw shit at me.

If you're at the game you can't see it. Imagine if in Boston they turned the monster into a giant Hankook ad. That's what they've done in Houston, but an ad for Dongus or whoever it is.

Dallas can't find the zone, then Angel gives him one low off the corner.

How many calls would Angel have to make in our favor to get to neutral with the Astros?  100?  125?
