The Houston Astros will be looking to make it three-games in a row they’ve won as they prepare themselves to host the Chicago White Sox, also looking to continue on with their own current winning streak that stands at three at the moment. While the Astros continue to hold one of the most comfortable leads in all of professional baseball when it comes to divisional standings, with a nine-game difference putting them atop the AL West division, for Chicago, every game and every win is as important as the next as they are fully immersed in a battle with the Guardians and Twins for the top spot in the AL Central division.
Even while standing tall and strong in the first spot of the AL West division, the Houston Astros haven’t been playing their best baseball as of far, especially given the fact that they’ve lost five of their last ten games. Still though, a lot is to be said about a team that while losing 50% of their games, still have a very strong lead in their division. While their hitting powers continue to flail between hot and cold at times, it is their pitching department that continues to shine as one of the absolute best units. This has been the main driving force behind Houston’s success, especially when at first the team saw their initial stretch of the season be one where underwhelming performances reigned above all.
Still, the Astros will be looking for their offense to continue with their recent hot streak where they have scored 13 runs against just bagging five in return. Led by LF Yordan Alvarez when it comes to production and slugging percentages, the Astros will surely need for their batting lineup to continue heating up, especially against a team that can turn the heaters on at any minute like Chicago. In the pitching mound LHP Framber Valdez, will be looking to score his 7th win of the season, all while holding back Chicago’s offense to a minimum.
The White Sox on the other hand continue to flail in the middle of the AL Central division even while continuing to have one of the better and more explosive offensive units in the game. Constant highs and lows in performance have been the main weapon stopping Chicago from putting an even stronger chase on both the Guardians and Twins atop their division. Tonight, in the hopes of maintaining their most recent win streak going, the Sox will be sending ace RHP Lucas Giolito looking for his 5th win of the season as the White Sox will be looking to cut the distance with Cleveland for the 2nd spot in their division.
While Chicago’s offense could become a sort of trouble for the Astros, Houston’s rotation and bullpen still give an edge to the home team that should be able to walk out of Minute Maid Park with a W under their belts.
