After some clutch hitting and much improved patience at the plate last night, the Houston Astros are looking to finally break out of their slump on offense. Additionally, today will be Gerrit Cole's first major test after facing the Rangers twice and the Padres in his first three starts of the 2018 season. Should be another fun one between Houston and Seattle.
