The Houston Astros are finally coming to life.
Houston looks to inch closer to the .500 mark when they take on the Texas Rangers for an AL West weekday series starting on Monday.
The Astros were picked by many to win the American League this season.
After a horrific start that saw at the cellar of the AL, they have finally began to pick up steam.
Houston has jumped to 2 games within the .500 mark and are 7.0 games out of first in 3rd place in the AL West.
7.0 games out is actually a solid feat given their early season struggles. This series could bode very well for them as they get a chance to take on the team they’re currently chasing.
Houston will send out Mike Fiers here, who has been a big part of that turn around. Fiers has allowed 2 runs or fewer in 5 of his last 7 starts.
However, he hasn’t grabbed a win in 4 straight starts now, which can be pinned to lack of offensive support. He allowed just 1 run in his last outing, but was deemed a ND.
The Rangers have been just as hot as the Astros, which has kept the distance between these two clubs.
Texas has won 12 of their last 15 and made a statement in the AL West this weekend. They outscored the Mariners 20-9 and swept them way, creating a 3.5 game gap between the two teams now.
Texas has been dominant at home, going 21-9 while averaging 5.43 runs per game.
To make matters even nicer, they’ll send out Colby Lewis, who has been dominant this season and against the Astros. Lewis In a 13 start span against Houston, Lewis has won 3 straight and 10 of 11, while posting a 2.50 ERA.
On the season, Lewis has been a stellar 5-0 with a 3.09 ERA. He has everything working for him and hasn’t given up many free passes this season. Combine that with how good his offense has been and he’s been almost unstoppable on the mound.
