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.
- They are the best hitting team in baseball, and although slumping during most of July, seem to be back to life recently.
- Lance McCullers: 8-2, 3.23 ERA in the tougher AL.
Should be some good pitching tonight . Hopefully for the good guys anyway.
