Wandilicious vs Boomer, the battle of two losing pitchers. If there's one thing to be thankful for today, it's that Wandy is making this start at home and Boomer is making his start away from home. Wandy when at home this season has a 5-2 record with a 1.81 ERA with only 4 home runs against. Away from the juice box, Wandy has a 1-7 record with a 7.43 ERA and 11 home runs against. Boomer on the other hand has a 2-4 away record with a 6.25 ERA as opposed to his 3-2 record at home and a 3.55 ERA. Wells is also coming off his 2nd worst start of the season where he went 4.1 innings and gave up 7 runs(3 off of long balls). All of the signs point to Wandy having a good outing and the Astros taking the first game of the series. Unfortunately they still have to play the game... let's just hope things turn out as planned.
