Having won nine-of-eleven, including two straight over red hot St. Louis, Houston faces another streaking club tonight in Cleveland. This season, the Astros are 2-2 vs. an Indians group just two games behind Minnesota for division-leader status.
After a series-opening adjustment, Houston’s proven arms held the Cardinals to four runs as the Astros won their latest interleague matchup with style. Carlos Correa, George Springer and Jose Altuve sparked Houston’s 14-4 game two and three dominance vs. the Cards.
The Astros look to keep that momentum going tonight against a group fighting for playoff inclusion.
Jose Urquidy (1-0, 4.26 ERA) would also like his incipent MLB momentum to roll along this evening as he opens for the fifth time this season. Houston is 4-2 when Urquidy starts. And in his last start, the rookie RHP tossed six fine innings of one run, six strikeout ball before the Astros’ bullpen collapsed allowing St. Louis victory, 5-3.
Cleveland has availed its recent fortunes against subpar competition, going 3-1 vs. Kansas City. However, the Indians dropped their series finale Sunday night vs. the Royals 9-6 as Trevor Bauer allowed five fifth inning runs.
While starting pitching is Cleveland’s strength, the Indians bullpen issues make limiting Houston’s early offense a top priority.
Adam Plutko (3-2, 4.83 ERA) starts tonight for Cleveland. The Indians sport an impressive 7-2 record when Plutko opens. Granted, most of those wins come opposite Detroit and Kansas City -though the MLB newcomer owns an impressive June 8 win vs. NYY.

Free Houston Astros vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction
While Houston is dominating the AL West, they are also motivated by halting streaking opponents and flexing their top-shelf muscle to other World Series frontrunners.
That stated, Plutko and Urquidy each possess good stuff which has brought early career success. Plutko’s auspicious six-inning, two-run gem vs. New York bodes well for tonight’s high stakes encounter.

Though, after a long game one look at Cleveland’s lineup, Houston will adjust and generate enough offense to win game two of this pivotal series.
