The Arizona Diamondbacks were beat up 3-10 in Colorado against the Rockies on Thursday night. It was their second consecutive loss, giving them a record of 3-7 through their previous 10 games.
The Diamondbacks will head into Friday’s game one against the Astros in Houston 4.5 games back in the National League West. Arizona will need to be a little more productive with the wood if they hope to play past September this season.
While 20 runs in their previous five games aren’t exactly horrible, they will simply need to do more if they want to make the postseason.
Right-hander Zack Godley will be the man putting in work on the mound for Arizona Saturday. He’ll enter the game looking to improve his 14-9 record on the season.
Godley currently has a 4.67 ERA to go along with 174 strikeouts this year.
The Houston Astros were able to get a 5-4 win against the Tigers in Detroit on Wednesday, giving Houston three wins in a row. The streak has been part of a 9-1 record in their previous 10 games.
Houston will go into game one of this series on Friday night with a three and a half game lead over the Oakland A’s in the American League West.
They have been solid from the batter’s box here lately, crossing home plate a total of 23 times in their previous five games.
Charlie Morton will get the start for the Astros Saturday. He’s been good for a 14-3 record this year to go along with a 3.15 ERA.
188 times this season he’s been able to send an opposing batter back to the dugout on strikes.
He’ll need to have one of his better performances of 2018 if the Astros want to keep what lead they have in their division.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
The Houston Astros have been a little more productive with the bat recently than the Diamondbacks. They also have been hot their previous 10 games and I don’t know if Arizona has the pitching to cool them down right now.
I like Houston at home in game two, regardless of what happens on Friday night.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER 8
Both of these starting pitchers have been solid this season. I don’t think Arizona has a chance to outpitch Houston in this one.
If they are going to win, they’re going to have to get the bats swinging. I think they’ll give it a go, but end up falling short later in the game.
