This has a bit of a World Series preview feel. Houston did not have much success against the Yankees to start the week and now they close with a tough road trip to the dessert. Their offense can definitely be better.
The do lead the Majors in most pitching categories though and Charlie Morton has been part of a great group of starters. He got the lone win in that Yankees series and held them to just a couple of hits over 7+ innings. It was a nice bounce back after his only bad outing this season.
The Diamondback also had a big series to start the week, splitting with the Dodgers. They also have been pitching great – second in ERA behind Houston – but the offense has more potential. AJ Pollock has 10 dingers but Paul Goldschmidt has yet to find his groove.
Zack Greinke is the most recognizable starter for Arizona but others have performed better than him this season. Reports say his stuff isn’t quite as good as it used to be. He still can pitch very effectively but the dominance comes and goes. He hardly walks anyone.
