Game 107 Thread. August 3, 2021, 9:10 CDT. Astros @ Dodgers

A battle of aces: Walker Buehler against Lance McCullers.

MLB: Houston Astros at San Francisco Giants Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports

The Astros couldn’t have chosen a worse time to hit LA, facing perhaps the best 1, 2 pitching punch in baseball: Walker Buehler and Max Scherzer.

Tonight it’s Buehler, with an 11-1 record and a 2.19 ERA.

But the Astros have two answers for that.

  1. They are the best hitting team in baseball, and although slumping during most of July, seem to be back to life recently.
  2. Lance McCullers: 8-2, 3.23 ERA in the tougher AL.

Should be some good pitching tonight . Hopefully for the good guys anyway.

It’s the MLB free game of the day.
