I see the Astros keeping up their good play in this one. I do not see them slowing down.
Houston is the better team and I feel they will show that in this one. I do not give the Diamondbacks much of a chance.
Zack Greinke was not good in his last start, but I look for this to be a bounce back opportunity for him.
