It’s an American League West showdown on Wednesday afternoon at the Oakland Coliseum. The Houston Astros make the trip to Oakland to take on the Athletics.
The Astros have won four of the five games played between the two teams this year.
The Houston Astros look to be a team that could really compete for another World Series this year, but they have had struggles with one team. the New York Yankees.
After struggling against the Yankees and only taking one game from the Arizona Diamondbacks, seeing the Athletics was a welcome sight.
They have gotten good pitching in each of the first two games and that will need to continue in this game. On the mound for the Astros is Gerrit Cole.
The Oakland Athletics are going through a rebuild, and the results haven’t been great this year. They are still 18-18 but in a tough American League West, that is no where near good enough.
To win this game it’s going to start with slowing down the offense of the Astros. If they don’t get good pitching in this game they won’t have a shot to win.
