Pitching Matchup

RHP Paul Blackburn (1-0, 1.50 ERA, 3 SO) vs. RHP Gerrit Cole (7-1, 2.16 ERA, 124 SO)

Blackburn does not have much experience as a starter in 2018, but he was decently effective in his only start thus far this season. Cole, on the other hand, is looking to ride what has been an unbelievable start with his new team in Houston.
