It is no surprise that the Astros took the first two games of the series in commanding fashion. They are currently riding a seven game winning streak and have been dominating. They have been easily coping with the fact that Jose Altuve is likely out the rest of the month. It helps that George Springer is red hot. His 16 homers are tied for the Major League lead with Christian Yelich.
Justin Verlander has discovered the fountain of youth in Houston. He has given up 1Er or fewer is five of his last six starts and is coming off his best outing of the season – 7IP 1H 0ER against Texas. Oddly his numbers against his old team are just so-so. Still I would not bet against him or the team in this spot. The Astros are strong across the board including a top five bullpen.
The Tigers were competing early in the season but they have been struggling of late. It does not help that they have four starting pitchers currently on the disabled list. They might have been able to manage that better if this team could score some runs but that has been a challenge too – 29th. They have only 33 home runs on the season. That is just more than double what Springer has on his own.
Gregory Soto is getting another chance to fill in and another chance to show that he has something. His first start was poor with 7ER over just 4 innings. They are desperate though due to all of those injuries. He could have an unfamiliarity advantage but I am not sure you want to bet on that. Especially with a light offense and bullpen that is nothing special.
