The Astros have found their strike as of late, as they currently ride a 5 game winning streak.
They take on the Royals who have also been playing really well as of late, but have lost their last 2.
They’ve won 8 of their last 11 which has put them 5 games over .500 and looking more like the team they were last season.
The Astros have won 7 of their last 8 games and look unstoppable at the moment.
They’ve scored 38 runs in their last 8 games, which is a tad below 5 runs per game. So their offense is clicking but it’s their defense in combination with this offense that has helped them get the w’s.
They do like the long ball and now have 91 of them on the season which puts them in the top 10 in the MLB.
During this same 8 game span, they’ve given up just 22 runs, which is a 16 run differential compared to the 38 they’ve scored.
Fiers contributed to this by throwing a shutout over 5.2 innings on June 19th against the Reds.
His era is 4.42 but don’t let that fool you because he’s pitched pretty good since the start of May.
Over his last 9 starts, he’s had 1 poor outing of 7 runs and 2 outings of 4 runs. The remaining 6 starts he gave up 2 or less.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals have been great themselves. They’ve scored 45 runs over their last 7 games.
They can definitely fill up the scoreboard. They average just 4 runs per game on the season but have the 2nd best team batting average of .273 in the MLB.
They are always chipping away and keeping themselves in the game, especially as of late.
Defensively, they rank among the top 7, allowing just 4.1 runs per game.
Young is just 2-6 with a 5.61 era, so this is working against the Royals in this one, especially with the Astros hitting a hot bat.
