The Houston Astros are still one of the best teams in the league this season. The Astros are deadly. The lineup is loaded and clicking on all cylinders at the right time. Once the bats are swinging like they are now, look for a big day from the Astros.
The Astros will look for ace Justin Verlander (8-2, 1.45 ERA) to give them a good start. If Verlander is able to come out, and play his game, the Athletics are going to be in trouble. Look for Verlander to go seven or more innings in this one.
The Oakland Athletics are a better team than they were last season, but are still failing to stay consistent. The Athletics are 3-3 over their last six games. That includes two losses to the Astros. Oakland lost last night, 13-5.
