Pitching Matchup

LHP Dallas Keuchel (3-7, 3.65 ERA, 60 SO) vs. LHP James Paxton (4-1, 3.13 ERA, 95 SO)

This will be a very fun pitcher's duel tonight at Minute Maid Park as James Paxton, over the course of his career, has dominated the Houston Astros as Astros hitters have only been able to produce a slash line of .224/,275/.333 against the big Canadian left-hander. On the opposite side, Dallas Keuchel has pitched equally as well if not better against the Mariners, with Seattle hitters producing a slash line of .200/.226/.400 against the 2015 American League Cy Young winner.
