Houston Astros 

Houston played the Angels over the weekend, bagging three wins in four games. On Monday versus Toronto, the Astros scored six runs in the first inning alone on the way to an 11-4 win. Starting pitcher Brandon Bielak lasted 6.2 frames with three earned on 10 hits and a walk. 

For the starter job on Tuesday Houston will go with Hunter Brown. In 11 starts this year Brown is 5-2 with a 3.61 ERA and 74 Ks in 62.1 innings. Brown is 7-2 with a 2.94 ERA in 18 career games (13 starts). 

Toronto Blue Jays 

Over on the Blue Jays’ side, they took care of the Mets in a three-game sweep over the weekend. On Monday Toronto gave up 19 hits (and had 12 themselves) in the loss. Starter Alek Manoah lasted just 0.1 frames with six earned, seven hits, one walk and zero Ks. 

It’ll be Kevin Gausman in the start for the Jays on Tuesday. Across his 12 starts this year Gausman is 4-3 with a 2.76 ERA and 100 Ks over 75.0 innings total. Gausman is 80-85 with a 3.87 ERA in 279 career games (240 starts). 

The Astros are 5-1 in their last six in game two of a series and 18-6 in their last 24 overall. Houston is 40-17 in their last 57 Tuesday games.

Meanwhile, the Jays are 3-8 in their last 11 on turf and the over is 4-0-1 in their last five Tuesday games. The over is 6-2-1 in Toronto’s last nine on turf. 


I’ll stay with the Jays in this one. Gausman has done well over his last few starts. In his most recent three combined Gausman is 2-0 with three earned on 15 hits and nine walks in 20.0 innings. As for Brown, he’s coming off a sketchy outing versus Minnesota but was pitching well before that. On Monday Toronto got off to a bad start and really had no chance at coming back despite a fairly solid offensive output. I like the Jays to recover and tie it up in game two.
