The Astros are on the road after a 6-4 home stand, one marred by critical injuries to core players; George Springer, Carlos Correa, and Jose Altuve. And that’s just some of them. With all that, they still beat the Red Sox two out of three, as well as the Cubs.
The A’s have won 10 of the last 12, but the two losses were the last two games they have played.
Brad Peacock goes to the mound for the good guys tonight, hoping to keep his 12 inning scoreless streak intact. Former Astro Mike Fiers grabs the banner for the A’s, and though his ERA is an even five, his record is 4-3, and he pitched his second career no-hitter earlier this season.
