The Houston Astros are at the point in the season where they need to finish things on their own and lock up the American League West. The Astros defeated visiting Oakland 5-1 Sunday for much needed consecutive victories. Starter Collin McHugh came up big with the lone run plated on four hits through eight innings to up his record to 17-7. The Stros totaled nine hits and three free passes with George Springer smacking a two run jack while Colby Rasmus went deep, drove in three and scored twice. The Astros hand the ball to Dallas Keuchel who will be looking for redemption on Monday. Keuchel was hammered for nine runs on eleven hits including three bombs of a 14-3 loss at Texas.
The over is 7-1 in the Angels last 8 Monday games and the under is 6-2-2in their last 10 overall while going 6-2-2 in their last 10 on grass. The over is 5-1-2 in Houston’s last 8 Monday games while Houston are 42-16 in their last 58 home games while going 21-6 in Keuchel’s last 27 home starts. I’ll take a shot with the guy who has to rebound…
