Pitching Matchup

RHP Mike Clevinger (3-1, 2.87 ERA, 50 SO) vs. RHP Charlie Morton (6-0, 1.94 ERA, 70 SO)

It's kind of funny how Charlie Morton has a 1.94 ERA and 70 strikeouts through two full months of the MLB regular season but is the 3rd best pitcher on the Astros pitching staff.

After his absolutely terrible performance so far this season, it is surprising to see outfielder Jake Marisnick back in the Astros lineup so quickly after his quick promotion back to the MLB due to Josh Reddick being placed on the disabled list.
