It’s an American League showdown between two teams on Saturday night. The Oakland Athletics make the trip to Minute Maid Park to take on the Houston Astros.
These two teams have faced off 12 times so far this year with the Astros winning ten of those games.
The Oakland Athletics have had a disappointing season so far, not that anyone really expected it to be much different. They were active at the trade deadline trading away a lot of their bullpen and that has really hurt their chances to win.
On the mound for the Athletics is Kendall Graveman who comes into this game with a 3-3 record and an ERA of 4.70. In his last start he went seven innings against the Orioles and gave up eight hits and two runs, but still ended up with the loss.
On the other side of this match up is the Houston Astros who will have home field advantage up until the World Series if they make it that far.
They have two goals before the playoffs come though. They need to try and get healthy, and they need to try and finish the season strong.
Their bats have been quiet at times the last month and they need to try and change that soon, or they will have a lot of issues in the playoffs.
