Pitching Matchup

LHP Dallas Keuchel (6-8, 3.95 ERA, 89 SO) vs. RHP Mike Fiers (6-5, 3.65 ERA, 74 SO)

A couple of World Series champions will face off tonight as Dallas Keuchel looks to build off some momentum from his last two starts, in which he has allowed only three total earned runs in 14.0 innings pitched while striking out nine and walking four. On the other side, Mike Fiers makes his return to Minute Maid Park where he threw the Astros' only no-hitter of this decade back in 2015. Fiers, however, has always had issues giving up too many home runs and we know the Astros offense would like to take advantage of that weakness tonight.
