The Cleveland Guardians and the Houston Astros will meet up for the second game of their 3-game series at the Minute Maid Park. Yesterday, Jose Ramirez went 2 for 5 with a two-run homer, a double, 4 RBI and a stolen base, securing the Guardians victory over the Astros. Luis Garcia was the one that took the loss for the Astros as he pitched 5 innings and he gave up 4 runs on 5 hits and 2 walks. Now the Houston Astros will try to turn things around by scoring a win over the Cleveland Guardians, who are currently sitting in the bottom-half of the standings.
The Houston Astros will send out Framber Valdez as their starting pitcher, who carries a 3-2 record with a 2.68 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP, which are some decent numbers. Last week we saw Valdez score his 3rd win after allowing only 1 run on 6 hits and 2 walks against the Texas Rangers. While Valdez has scored only 39 SO over 47 innings this season, he’s maintained a 65.7% groundball rate. Valdez might be the deciding factor in this game, if he managed to put up a good performance then the Astros could be looking to secure a series victory over the Cleveland Guardians.
On the other side, Zach Plesac will be the starting pitcher for the Cleveland Guardians, who is looking to get his 2nd win of the season. Plesac is currently on a 1-3 record and carries a 4.42 ERA and a 1.34, which doesn’t look that great, at least compared to Astros’ Valdez. The last time we saw Plesac throw was against the Cincinnati Reds 7 days ago, where he allowed 2 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks, and that was his second start of the year. Even if the results were good, Plesac wasn’t dominant at all, scoring only 6 swinging strikes over 95 pitches, which doesn’t look great at all.
