The Oakland Athletics look for a win after losing four of their last six games. The A’s have scored just four runs in their last two games and two or less runs in three of their last six games. The Athletics have lost nine straight regular season games when scoring less than three runs. Billy Butler leads Oakland with 24 hits and 12 RBI while Marcus Semien and Stephen Vogt have combined for 25 RBI. Only three of the Oakland Athletics eight wins have come on their home field. Kendall Graveman takes the hill, and he’s 1-1 with a 6.94 ERA and six strikeouts this season. This will be Graveman’s second career game against the Astros.
The Astros are 76-160 in their last 236 during game 2 of a series and 1-6 in Feldmans last 7 starts. The Athletics are 8-20 in their last 28 vs. a team with a winning record and 50-24 in their last 74 home games vs. a team with a winning record. The Astros are 0-5 in Feldmans last 5 starts vs. Athletics.
While the Astros are playing great ball right now, the A's will be hungry to bounce back after losing a tough game Friday night. Also, Feldman has had brutal success in his career against the Athletics. Take the home team for the reasonable price.
