Athletics Analysis: Ross Stripling will be the starter

With a goal of maintaining a gap with the Astros in the AL West standings, the Oakland Athletics go to Houston. The A’s had a terrible start to the season with problems on and off the field, but they have played remarkably well. The A’s and Mariners split their opening two games this weekend, with each side winning 8-1. The Mariners defeated the Athletics 8-4 in the series finale on Sunday. Alex Wood, the starter, gave up five runs on four hits, including a home run, in just two innings of work. Against Wood, four of the runs were undeserved. In the first game of the series against the Astros, righty Ross Stripling will be the pitcher for the A’s. Stripling has a 5.14 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP this season, and he is just 1-6 overall.

 

Astros Analysis: They’ve won 3 of their last 5 games

After defeating the Detroit Tigers 9-3 on the road, the Houston Astros managed to go 18-for-42 with three walks and seven strikeouts. With two walks and a two-run home run off of the leadoff spot, Kyle Tucker had a solid outing. Houston was 6-for-12 in those at-bats with nine runners left on base, demonstrating their outstanding ability with runners in scoring position. Having Justin Verlander pitch seven scoreless innings, they were able to allow most of their bullpen to get a break. The Houston Astros’ rookie right-hander Spencer Arrighetti will take the mound. He hasn’t fared well in the majors, going 0-4 in five starts with an 8.44 ERA and a 2.02 WHIP in 21.1 innings.
