The Los Angeles Angels need a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Angels have scored eight runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Angels have won eight of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. David Fletcher leads the Angels with 22 hits and eight RBI while Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani have combined for 43 hits and 27 RBI. Dylan Bundy gets the ball, and he is 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. Bundy is 0-3 with a 4.25 ERA and 49 strikeouts in his career against the Astros.
The Houston Astros look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Astros have scored 29 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Astros are 9-3 this season when scoring four or more runs. Yuli Gurriel leads the Astros with 24 hits and 23 RBI while Carlos Correa and Michael Brantley have combined for 45 hits and 15 RBI. Lance McCullers Jr. gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 5.27 ERA and 16 strikeouts this season. McCullers is 3-3 with a 3.21 ERA and 66 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 21-46 in their last 67 road games and 3-10 in their last 13 Sunday games. The Astros are 13-5 in their last 18 during game 4 of a series and 105-49 in their last 154 home games. The over is 4-0 in Angels last 4 overall. The over is 5-0 in Astros last 5 home games. The Angels are 18-40 in the last 58 meetings in Houston and 16-35 in the last 51 meetings.
The Los Angeles Angels offense has fallen off a cliff over the last week and Bundy is a pitcher who has had issues with control the last couple of seasons. McCullers isn't off to a great start, but he's better than he's shown up to this point and he was dominant at home last year. The Houston Astros offense has also picked things up lately, so there's confident run support here. Give me the Astros for another victory.
