The Astros and Diamondbacks meet on Thursday afternoon for the finale of a four game set at Minute Maid Park.
On Tuesday afternoon, the Astros topped the Diamondbacks 8-5. Lance McCullers earned the win giving up six hits on three runs.
George Springer had a huge night for the Astros. Springer went 3-of-4 with a double, a home run and four RBI.
Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin got the loss giving up seven runs in 3.1 innings.
The Diamondbacks have disappointed so far this season. A big reason has been the absence of David Peralta who is out with a wrist injury. Arizona is also missing A.J. Pollock who had right elbow surgery in the offseason and is expected to miss the year.
Pollock was an All-Star last year after hitting .315 with 20 homers to go along with 39 stolen bases.
Paul Goldscmidt is hitting .269 with 10 homers and 33 RBI. Jean Segura leads the way with a .306 batting average.
Zack Grienke has been the biggest disappointment for Arizona. The 32-year-old is 6-3 with a 4.71 ERA on the year. Over the last few outings he has been solid winning his last three starts and lowering his ERA half a run.
On the season the Diamondbacks are 8-3 in Grienke’s 11 starts.
The Astros are playing their best baseball of the season. Houston has won seven of their last eight games. The trio of Carlos Correa, Jose Altuve, and Springer are the main factors.
Altuve is hitting .327 with nine homers and 31 RBI. Correa is only batting .253 but he has eight home runs and 27 RBI.
Springer is batting .288 with 12 homers and 33 RBI.
Dallas Keuchel has underperformed all year as he is 3-6 with a 5.58 ERA. The lefty is coming off one of his best starts of the year in which he gave up two runs in seven innings against the Angels in a win.
On the season the Astros are only 3-8 in Keuchel’s 11 starts this year.
