Pitching Matchup

LHP Cole Hamels (3-5, 3.63 ERA, 74 SO) vs. RHP Gerrit Cole (6-1, 2.20 ERA, 116 SO)

In two starts against Arlington so far in 2018, Gerrit Cole has only allowed three earned runs while striking out 25 opposing hitters, but the main question for tonight remains: Will George Springer hit another home run off Cole Hamels?

Today's Lineups

The Houston Astros have yet to officially announce the injury status of Carlos Correa (as of this afternoon at 4:45 PM so they might have by the time this post is published), but the star shortstop will sit for tonight's game and will be available to pinch hit.
