It’s an American League showdown between one of the best teams in baseball, and one of the worst. The Oakland Athletics make the trip to Houston to take on the Astros.
These two teams have played 13 times so far this season with the Astros winning 11 of those games.
The Oakland Athletics have had a disappointing season, and it doesn’t look to be getting any better. They are young and don’t have enough good pitching or hitting for that matter to really compete this year.
Their best pitchers they traded away and it has really hurt them the last month.
To win this game they are going to need to find a way to get their bats going early. They are facing a really good pitching team in the Astros, and if they let Brad Peacock get settled in, it could be a long day of not many runs crossing the plate.
Ever since the trade deadline passed, the Houston Astros just haven’t been the same team. They didn’t really upgrade much, while the teams chasing them did many upgrades.
They are hoping this little run will help them turn the corner though. They have won three of the last four games including two over the Diamondbacks.
On the mound for the Astros is Brad Peacock who has been really solid this year for the Astros. He comes into this game with a 10-1 record and an ERA of 3.30.
