Houston comes into this games losers of their last outing, 9-7 in Baltimore. Lance McCullers too the loss. He pitched 4.2 innings, allowing six runs on nine hits. In his last three starts, McCullers is 0-1 carrying a 3.88 ERA during that span.
The Astros continue their east coast road trip, and send Brad Peacock (8-1, 2.49 ERA) to the bump against the Phillies.
Peacock is probably headed back to the bullpen since the return of Colin McHugh, but is definitely a valuable piece to the Astros bullpen. Anytime you can convert a bullpen guy to a successful starter is a huge bonus, making Peacock a duel threat.
Philadelphia is still one of the worst teams in baseball, but are 5-4 since returning from the all star break. Yesterday the Phillies got a two run home run in the fourth inning from Nick Williams, then got a four run fifth inning to seal the win, 6-3 against the Brewers.
Philadelphia sends Vince Velasquez (2-5, 5.14 ERA) out against the deadly Astros lineup. Velasquez has yet to face the Astros this season. He carries a 1-3 record, with a 6.26 ERA at Citizens Bank Park.
Opposing hitters are averaging .287 against him at home this season.
