Astros manager A.J. Hinch¬†said after Tuesday night’s American League Wild Card Game victory in New York that Collin McHugh would serve as the team’s ALDS Game 1 starter on Thursday against the Royals. Now we know how the rest of Houston’s Division Series rotation will shake out …

Hinch told Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle on Wednesday that Scott Kazmir will pitch Game 2 on Friday and Dallas Keuchel will take Game 3 on Sunday. Keuchel tossed six scoreless innings on Tuesday night against the Yankees to push the Astros past the Wild Card round.

If the Astros need a Game 4 starter, they’ll go with either Lance McCullers or Mike Fiers.
