The Houston Astros were able to come up with a 3-2 win in the series opener against the Tigers in Detroit on Monday, giving them a record of 8-2 throughout their previous 10 games.
The streak has put Houston three games ahead of the Oakland A’s in the American League West. Houston had been hot with the wood coming into Monday, crossing home plate for a total of 30 runs in their previous five games.
The Astros will need to keep the production coming out of the batter’s box if they look to stay on top of their division through the last few weeks of the season.
Lefty Framber Valdez will get the start for Houston on Tuesday, looking to improve his record of 3-1. He has an impressive 1.37 ERA in his short amount of work to go along with 15 strikeouts.
If he is able to stay on top of the count for at least a few innings, the Astros should have no problem pulling away in this one.
After taking the loss in Monday’s series opener, the Detroit Tigers are now sitting at .500 throughout their previous 10 games. While the season will be over at the end of the month for the Tigers, they still have a few opportunities to make things more difficult for a couple of other teams.
Before Monday’s game against Houston, Detroit had been able to knock in 29 runs in their previous five games. However, the numbers aren’t as good as they sound when you figure 18 of them were against the White Sox on 9/4&5.
Still, 29 runs in five games are definitely something any team could build on.
Right-hander Jordan Zimmermann will be on the mound for Detroit Tuesday looking to keep his 7-6 record above .500. He has a 4.03 ERA for the year and has been able to rack up a total of 97 strikeouts this season.
He’ll need to be on top of his game if Detroit looks to get the win Tuesday night.

Free Houston Astros vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
The math isn’t too hard to figure out in this one. With the way Houston has been swinging the wood and Valdez on the hill, I think the Astros are too much for the Tigers in game two.
