Both the Houston Astros and the Baltimore Orioles are hoping to build off of successful regular seasons. The Astros are 64-49, good enough for second place in the AL West. The Orioles have won four in a row, improving their record to 70-42 and giving them the top mark in the American League.
Framber Valdez, fresh off a no-hitter in his previous start, will take the mound for the Astros, while Grayson Rodriguez, who has allowed just three runs in his last two outings, will do the same for the Orioles, making this an exciting pitching matchup to watch.
The Astros are playing well and looking to take over first place in their division in the near future. Starting pitcher Framber Valdez is having a tremendous season, allowing only 51 runs in 135 innings pitched while striking out 141 batters. He threw a no-hitter in his last start.
This season’s opponents are having trouble getting runners in scoring position against Valdez, as seen by a.388 anticipated opponent Slugging Percentage, a 6.1 Walk Rate, and a 3.86 predicted ERA.
Two of baseball’s top teams are facing off in what promises to be an exciting game. The Astros are counting on Framber Valdez to carry them to victory after his no-hitter, but the Orioles are on a roll and want to take control of the game from the get-go.
Gunner Henderson, Anthony Santander, and the rest of the Orioles’ order should be able to easily drive in runs against the Astros’ pitching staff, since the team’s average scoring output is 4.95 runs per game.
Grayson Rodriguez, coming off two starts in which he allowed only three runs, should be counted on to continue that trend and lead the Orioles to a comfortable lead for the bullpen to seal.
