The Astros are 3-8 over their last 11 games. Very uncharacteristic of a team who is first in the Majors in runs scored (668) and batting average (.290). The team has gone through some injuries, and pitching difficulties during their losing stretch. It is only a matter of time until they break out of their losing ways.
Dallas Keuchel (9-2, 2.87 ERA) will start today for the Astros. It’s tough to say, but Keuchel has been bad since his return from injury. In his last two starts, he is 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA. He faced the Rangers June 2nd, getting a 7-1 win. He held the Rangers lineup to a .143 average over six innings in that start.
Texas is looking to keep playing spoiler against any team with playoff hopes. The Rangers are four games under .500 and 15.5 games back of the Astros. The Rangers took game one of this three game set, 6-4. The Rangers bats were able to get 10 hits in the win.
Andrew Cashner (7-8, 3.36 ERA) will start for the fourth time this season against the Astros. He has not done will against them this year. Cashner is 0-3 with a 6.19 ERA over 16.2 innings pitched. The Astros lineup has averaged .333 against him this season.
