Today the Oakland Athletics and the Houston Astros will play their first game of a four-game series. The Oakland Athletics are entering this game after losing their previous four-game series to the Chicago White Sox. Meanwhile, the Houston Astros are entering this one after winning their previous series against the Detroit Tigers.
The Houston Astros currently sit at the top of the AL West, as they have a 12.5-game lead over the second-place Seattle Mariners. They are also 7-3 in their last 10, as their strong play has given them some breathing room in the AL Standings. They currently hold the number one seed in the AL playoff race.
The Oakland Athletics are currently in dead last place in the AL West, as they are now 41.0 games back from the first-place Houston Astros. The A’s are also 2-8 in their last 10 games played, as their poor play has allowed them to slide in the wrong direction. Oakland is also 28.5 games back from the final AL Wild Card spot, as they will most likely miss the postseason this year.
At the plate, the Athletics are scoring 3.54 runs per game and they are hitting .217 as a team. This is the second least amount of runs averaged per game and the lowest overall team batting average. They have struggled to reach base safely, which has made it much more difficult to score. Oakland has also shown that they don’t have a ton of home run power hidden inside of their lineup.
The A’s will be starting James Kaprielian on the mound. He is currently 3-9 with a 4.79 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP. In his last start, he pitched for 5.2 innings but he gave up seven hits and two earned runs. Houston replies back with McCullers Jr., who is currently 3-1 with a 2.20 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. In his last start, he pitched for 7.0 innings and he only gave up four hits and two earned runs.
