Going into Friday night’s opener, Houston has won eight in a row.
Whereas Houston was pitching when it didn’t hit, hitting when it didn’t pitch, and losing lots of close games, now it has been on the right side of the one-run games.
Four one-run wins in a row (three by a score of 2–1 and another 3–2) will help get a team feeling right and that’s how the ‘Stros are now.
Brandon Bielak has been the man in his rookie season thus far. He won each of his first two appearances out of the bullpen with strong multi-inning performances and has delivered three good starts since moving into the rotation.
All told, he’s given up four earned runs in over 21 innings this season but 15 strikeouts to 11 walks suggest the run could have a bit of beginner’s luck involved.
San Diego Padres
Bielak will be opposed by Zach Davies.
Davies went relatively unnoticed when he signed a deal with San Diego in the offseason after spending his first five big league seasons in Milwaukee.
He’s so far made five starts for the Padres and given up no more than three runs in any single start.
A strikeout-to-walk ratio of nearly 5:1 solidifies his strong start. This guy doesn’t jump out at the average fan but he’s a good, smart, consistent pitcher who will be an asset for San Diego this season and into the future.

Davies won’t make it easy but Houston should keep the momentum going. Give me the Astros in a spot where they could be not much more expensive than a pick.
