Houston is looking to catch the Yankees for the best record in all of baseball. This is key as there is a real possibility the two face off in the ALCS. The Astros currently trail them by two games but they do have a crucial tie-breaker. The difference in a series like that can simply be home-field as it was in the 2017 ALCS when the home team won all seven games.
The Astros are as balanced of a team as anybody in the majors. They got a great lineup led by guys like Jose Altuve, Michael Brantley, Carlos Correa, George Springer, Alex Bregman, and Yordan Alvarez.
Most importantly they got a trio of top-notch pitchers in Justin Verlander (2.58 ERA), Gerrit Cole (2.73 ERA), and Zack Greinke (2.99 ERA).
On the mound for Houston is Wade Miley. Miley is 13-5 with a 3.74 ERA this season. The lefty has struggled over his last few outings. In his last two games he has allowed 12 runs while recording one out total.
Kansas City Royals
Kansas City has been a mess all season. The team is 55-93 and have had issues everywhere on the field. The Royals rank second to last in the AL in runs scored and have allowed 784 runs on the season.
The offense is led by Jorge Soler who has a franchise record in homers. The star right fielder has 44 homers and 107 RBIs. Hunter Dozier (26 homers), and Whit Merrifield (.304) have also had good seasons.
The Royals will go with Jakob Junis in this matchup. Junis is 9-13 with a 5.06 ERA this season. In his last outing he allowed five runs in five innings.
