The Houston Astros need to get back into the American League West as the Seattle Mariners are slowly running away with it. The Astros did their job in their post recent series as they swept the Texas Rangers as they pretty much ended their rivals season.
On the mound for the Astros will be Lance McCullers JR who seeks his third win over the A’s in 2018. The right-hander has allowed two earned runs over 12 innings with four walks and 10 strikeouts in two prior starts vs. Oakland. McCullers took a no-decision against the Mariners on Wednesday.
Coming into this game, the Oakland Athletics hold 34 wins so far in the season and some may think that is plenty enough to contend in the division. However the Athletics are in the 4th spot in the division as these games should be treated like playoff games.
On the mound for the Athletics is Daniel Mengden who llowed seven runs total in six May starts, was roughed up for six runs in four innings in Arlington on Wednesday. The Rangers tagged him for four home runs. Mengden also walked three.
