The Houston Astros have been in a bit of a slump, but seemed to have regained focus in their last meeting with the Angels, making the series even at 1-1. Houston doesn’t have much to worry about in regards to the division, but should worry about the pitching staff going into the postseason.
Charlie Morton (10-6, 3.81 ERA) will make the start for the Astros. Morton has made one start against the Angels in 2017. He is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in his only start against the Angels this season. The Angels lineup averaged .250 against him in that start.
Los Angeles Angels
Los Angeles trails the Astros by 13 games in the AL West, but are still alive in the AL wildcard and trail the Twins by one game for the final AL wildcard spot.
The Angels have been in this position before, and know what it takes to come up short of the postseason. The Angels came within one game of the postseason last year.
Ricky Nolasco (6-12, 5.05 ERA) will make his third start of the season against the Astros. Nolasco is 1-1 with a 2.77 ERA in both starts against Hosuton this year. The Astros lineup is averaging .327 against him in those starts. He is 3-5 with a 4.90 ERA in 13 home starts this season.

Free Houston Astros vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
There is no way I can trust Nolasco under any circumstance this season. Charlie Morton has been suspect at times, but better than what Nolasco has been. Take the Astros in this one.
