The Houston Astros look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Astros have scored eight runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games.

The Houston Astros have won seven of their last 10 home games. Collin McHugh takes the hill, and he’s 5-2 with a 4.24 ERA and 52 strikeouts this season. McHugh is 0-0 with a 4.38 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 1-8 in their last 9 during game 2 of a series and 5-2 in their last 7 vs. American League West. The Astros are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series and 12-3 in McHughs last 15 starts. The under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
The Astros are on fire when playing at home and now have one of their better pitchers on the mound. Also, the O's have been fade material when on the road. I like Houston to keep rolling at home.
