Join the conversation as the Houston Astros look to start off their West Coast road trip with a win. A classic lefties duel between Dallas Keuchel and James Paxton should be fun.

Unfortunately Seattle killer Chris Carter is not in the Astros lineup tonight, so the other hitters will have to figure out a way to finally score some runs. Dallas Keuchel has not been his usual self so far in 2018, and James Paxton has a career 3.38 ERA with 43 strikeouts in 45.1 innings against Houston. Needless to say, tonight will be a very tough test for what has been an inconsistent Houston Astros baseball team so far.
