The Astros jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the American League Division Series Thursday with an 8-2win over the Red Sox.In a game that was touted as a battle of aces, it was Jose Altuve and the Astros' offense that stole the show in Houstonfrom Justin Verlander and Chris Sale. Here are three takeaways from the Astros' win:1. Altuve sees Judge's home run and raises him twoAltuve is one of the two leaders in the AL in the MVP race. He leads MLB in batting average (.346), was second in base hits (204), was fourth in WAR (7.56), sixth in runs scored (112) Miguel Gonzalez Jersey and ninth in OPS (.957). He sometimes gets overshadowed by Yankees rookie Aaron Judge, but he's been as good as any player in MLBthis year.Altuve went 3 for 4 with three solo home runs in the win, becoming the firstin MLB history to hit three home runs in the team's opening postseason game.With the three homers, Altuvealso became just the ninthplayer in the history of baseball to accomplish the feat. Only Babe Ruth did it more than once.2. Astros jump on Chris Sale early Astros manager A.J. Hinch had a couple ofgoals for his team against AL Cy Young Award Sox Cool Base Custom White/Black Jersey candidate Chris Sale. One was that hewanted his team to jump on him early and that is exactly what they did.In the first inning, Alex Bregman got Houston on the board first with a home run to left field. Altuve followed itwith a home run of his own to left-center.Sale gave up just one first-inning homer this season. He gave up two Thursday and finished thenight at Tim Anderson Jersey just five-plus innings with seven runs on nine hits, one walk and six strikeouts.3. Hanley Ramirez proves losing EduardoNunez doesn't hurtEduardoNunez started at designated hitter in Game 1 over slugger Hanley Ramirezin part because he was6 for 18 in his career against Verlander coming into the game.It was a short-lived start. Nunez saw one pitch, grounded a ball to third base and immediately pulled up after leaving the batter's box. He limped down to first base and fell to the ground in clear pain. He had to be carried off the field on what the Red Sox later described as a re-aggravation of a knee injury he suffered earlier in the year. Ramirez was then brought in to replace him.Ramirez made the lo s ofNunez hurt a little bit le s as he doubled during his first at-bat against Verlander and singled in his next one. He will likely be the player to start at DH the rest of the series for the Red Sox, and if Game 1 is any indication, it might not be a bad Yoan Moncada Cool Base Black Jersey thing.Boston does have a decision to make though. They can replaceNunez on their playoff roster, but if they do that they cannot bring him back for a potential AL Championship Series.HighlightBregman and Altuve hit back-to-back home runs in the playoffs for just the second time in Astros history.Lift off. #EarnHistory pic.twitter.com/b2cO6vLmPZ Houston Astros (@astros) October 5, 2017 What's NextALDS Game 2: Red Sox at Astros,2:05 p.m. ET Friday It's a battle of the Jim Thome Jersey lefties as2015 AL Cy Young Award winner Dallas Keuchel (14-5, 2.90 ERA) takes on Red Sox starter Drew Pomeranz (17-6, 3.32 ERA).
