Pitching Matchup

RHP Chris Devenski (0-1, 1.46 ERA, 1.09 WHIP) vs. RHP Trevor Bauer (2-0, 5.14 ERA, 1.43 WHIP)

Preview

Well, I have to admit I didn't expect that outcome with Monday's game. The Astros chased off the 2014 AL Cy-Young award winner in the third inning. May it's time to act like April never happened and this time has found it's way out of the desert?

The Astros send out Chris Devenski to help get the team's first three-game winning streak. Devenski has been everything the has needed as a starter. Devenski is 0-1 with a 2.45 ERA in two starts this season. He has allowed three runs over 11 innings as a starter, overall he allowed just four runs over 14 2/3 innings.

Trevor Bauer is one of many super prospects that haven't ever put it all together. Bauer still has time at 25-years-old. Bauer didn't start the season in the Indians rotation, moving back into the rotation after Carlos Carrasco went down with an injury.

As a starter, Bauer is 1-0 with a 5.59 ERA in two start -- he has allowed six runs over 9 2/3 innings on eight hits and four walks. Bauer had plenty of success against the Astros in 2015. He was 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA in two starts, Bauer allowed two runs over 14 innings while striking out out 20 and walking five.

Current Astros are batting .158 (6x36) against Bauer with a .250 BABIP, 1.34 FIP, 33.3 K%, and 7.1 BB%.
