The Jays take on the Astros in Houston Tuesday night.
The Jays have won five of their last seven games and are in a tight battle for the AL East lead.
The Astros have lost three straight and looked to be sellers at the trade deadline.
R.A Dickey is on the mound for the Jays and he is 7-12 with a 4.66 ERA and 1.34 WHIP.
Lance McCullers is on the rubber for the Astros and is 6-4 with a 3.18 ERA and 1.53 WHIP.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays just took two out of three against the Orioles over the weekend and open their series with the Astros tonight.
They’ll be looking to take at least three of these four against the Astros to ensure they stay in the AL East race and hopefully overtake the lead they held for one day.
Offensively, the Jays have scored 28 runs over their last five games. Runs are coming in plentifully but the team just lost Tulo to injury.
This shouldn’t impact their scoring too much though if Barney is in the lineup, he’s hit well this season.
R.A. has pitched poorly this season and has been unreliable.
His 4.66 ERA is around average but in his last three starts, he’s given up 18 runs.
The Astros are on the outside looking in and they don’t look like they are making a run for the playoffs.
Their activity at the deadline looked to sellers, slightly.
They have scored just two runs over their last two games.
Lance McCullers has been great for the Astros and holds an impressive 3.18 ERA.
In his last seven starts, he’s given up just one run five times, two runs once and three runs once.
He’s locked in and just 22 years old.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
R.A. has been just awful and with him on the mound against McCullers, this pitching matchup is dominated by the Astros.
Jays offense is without a doubt better but it’ll take too much to go right for the Jays to take this one down, so Astros are likely to come out on top,

Jays will have a tough time putting up runs but they are one of the best at doing that regardless of the starter. They’ll likely come out of this game with three runs.
The Astros should get plenty of runs on Dickey, they’ll get at least five on him and tack on at least one more against the bullpen.
