Detroit looks to continue their road success when they head into Houston for a weekend series.
The Tigers took back to back games in Pittsburgh while the Astros dropped the final 2 to the Royals in Houston.
Detroit knew their pitching staff was a giant question mark heading into this season. However, their offense right now is proving to be a completely overwhelming task to stop for the opposition. Detroit put up a 7 spot as they took down the Pirates before heading out of town.
This year, the Tigers have averaged 6.00 runs per game and they continue to get production from the middle of the lineup.
Detroit is also the lone perfect road team left. The Tigers have gone 4-0 away from Comerica Park here in 2016.
The Tigers will send out Mike Pelfrey, who looks to bounce back from a rough outing last time out. Pelfrey allowed 6 runs on 8 hits in just 2.2 innings of work against the Yankees before being pulled from the contest. Pelfrey struggled with command and left a lot of pitches up, something he did with the Twins in the past.
The Astros have a lot of pressure on them this season. A year after eliminating the Yankees in the Wild Card Game and nearly taking down the eventual World Series Champions, a lot of people think this is the Astros year to make a push toward the World Series themselves.
Things haven’t started according to plan as they have started just 3-6 and looked bad in the series against the Royals, losing 2 of 3.
Luckily for them, they’ll see ace Dallas Keuchel on the hill Friday. At home last year, Keuchel finished with wins in all 15 starts at Minute Maid and compiled an ERA of only 1.46.

Dallas Keuchel was absolutely dominant at home in 2015 and even that is an understatement.
Things will be tough on him with the Tigers lineup being so stacked. Locating and changing speeds is a key here for him.
