Oakland Athletics vs. Houston Astros, second time this season that the Astros visit the home of the Athletics, the first series was interesting as the Astros won 3-0 on the road, again the home of the Athletics will be the place for another series against the Astros . The players at Oakland Athletics have worked hard to lift the spirits of the team with the results at home.
Houston Astros: No one can stop us.
The Astros have 23 victories and 11 defeats on the road, the team so far is an unstoppable machine, they have not lost games in the last 4 days on the road, besides the series of 4 games against the Rangers was a comfortable victory 4-0 . This season has been almost the same as last year, the Astros have not stopped and want to win another title despite having some problems in the offense.
For this game the starting pitcher will be Lance McCullers, veteran player of the Astros, Lance is with the Astros since 2015, his best year was in the last season with 7-4, today in the regular season he is with 7-3 throwing for .700 with 3.94 ERA and 1,195 WHIP. Lance was the starter of the second game of the series against the Athletics on May 8, the victory was for the Astros 4-2.
Oakland Athletics: Things at home are not working well.
18-16 at home for the Athletics, a record nothing good, the effectiveness just over 52.9%, the season at home started with a 6-5 victory against Engels but that series of 4 games lost it 3-1. The only winning streak they have had at home was between April 21 and May 6 with 5 consecutive games, 3-0 against the Red Sox and 2-1 against the Orioles.
Production at home has not been good, the team is just scoring 3.47 runs and 7.53 hits, batters suffer up to 8.79 strikeouts leaving on base up to 13.68 runners per game. Daniel Mengden will be in charge of stopping the Astros at home, but Mengden’s record is only 6-5 in the regular season and he has always been a mediocre pitcher for the Athletics.
