After having last night’s game suspended due to rain and with the Astros not wasting any time today, already beating the Twins in a very dominating fashion, Houston will be out once again to take care of business and deal with their series against the Twins before they make a trip to the nation’s capital to face the Nationals for a three-game interleague weekend series.
Houston, who is coming into today’s second game of the day running on a nine-game winning streak will look to RHP Luis Garcia to try and score his third win of the season, while for Minnesota, who would nothing more than a win to try and save something out of this rather horrendous visit from Houston it will be RHP Josh Winder, who will be looking to move his record to three wins and zero losses for the season.
This Houston Astros team is turning into the nightmare that every other team in the American League would love nothing more than to avoid. After winning nine games in a row, including the first two of this series against Minnesota, the Astros look like they are the team to beat not only in the AL West division, but in all of the American League in general, of course, after the Yankees.
This team’s offense, which is filled with some pivotal players decided to wake up and get swinging at the best time and now it seems like stopping them is a gargantuan task that no opposing defense and pitching rotation could famine to try and accomplish.
But, if we’re going to be completely blunt and honest about the Astros, we can’t leave their stellar pitching rotation and bullpen on the side. This unit can pitch like nobody’s business. If you don’t believe it just look at Justin Verlander’s last game, or should we say masterclass in pitching.
This team’s pitching core could very well be the reason to any and all successes that the team continues to harvest now and moving on in the season. As long as their pitchers are doing good, always give the Astros an advantage in the game.
For Minnesota, this series is definitely not going the way they would have expected. The Astros have managed to completely shut down a rather good and decent offense and now, as they face the last game of their series, the question here is, what will the Twins come out with to counteract Houston’s dominance throughout the series? One thing is completely true, they will need a strong outing from starter Josh Winder to turn the ship around, because this Astros team will leave no room for errors.
