Winning four out of the five games in their recent stretch, the Houston Astros are on a roll. One of those reasons why the Astros are hitting a stride as of late is due to their third basemen Alex Bregman who has hit a home run in the past three of the past four games as well.
On the mound for Astros Lance McCullers Jr who a Tampa, Fla., native, has pitched six or more innings in each of his past five starts. He is 0-2 with a 6.00 ERA in two career starts at Tropicana Field.
Tampa Bay Rays
On the other side the Tampa Bay Rays are on fire right now as they have won five straight games including a huge sweep against the New York Yankees. Now the Rays are back into this mix as they also swept the Washington Nationals. Could the Rays stop the red-hot Astros?
On the mound for the Tampa Bay Rays will be Ryne Stanek who has not allowed a run in his last 10 appearances (five starts) since the beginning of June, and opponents are batting .095 (4-for-42) against him over that stretch. Fourteen of his last 15 performances have been scoreless.
