The Stros and A’s split a doubleheader on Tuesday as the battle for the West is close coming down the stretch. Astros sit just three-games back and have a chance to close the gap to two in the final game of the series on Wednesday.
Alex Bregman returned to the lineup on Tuesday going 0-3 for a walk after spending 10-days on the DL. Hopefully, he can get back into a rhythm as the next 16 games are crucial for their playoff hopes.
As a team, Houston scores 5.27 runs per game which is ranked 4th in the league.
Rookie Luis Garcia is seeking his first win on the year in the first start of his career on Wednesday. Garcia appeared in one game giving up one run in 4.1 innings of work.
Bob Melvin is going to need his pitching staff to kick it up a gear with the injuries to his starting lineup. They are missing three bats in the middle of the lineup with Marcus Semien, Stephen Piscotty, and Matt Chapman.
Kris Davis returned to the lineup after being benched due to his production being low in 2020. Davis hit a home run in his first at-bat so that should buy him some time in the lineup with Matt Chapman being sidelined. Collectively the A’s are scoring 4.76 runs per game which is ranked 16th in the league.
Oakland will also send out a rookie to the mound as Jesus Luzardo is on the bump for Bob Melvin’s squad. Luzardo is 2-2 with a 3.76 ERA in seven starts this year.
Free Houston Astros vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
Even though the Astros don’t have the big-name pitchers I still like them in this one as the A’s don’t have the bats to match up with the Astros once again. Luzardo is still a rookie in his own right and the public is all over Oakland right now. I’ll be confident laying my money on the dog here.
