Pitching Matchup

RHP Lance McCullers Jr. (9-3, 3.55 ERA, 106 SO) vs. RHP Reynaldo López (4-5, 3.68 ERA, 73 SO)

The Astros will look for McCullers to continue building off his recent success tonight, as the young right-hander owns a high 32.9% K% and low 7.9% BB% in his last three starts along with a FIP of 2.95 and an opponent batting average of only .188. We all watched Justin Verlander strike out a ton of White Sox hitters last night, so hopefully McCullers can continue that trend in tonight's contest.
