Houston vs Oakland: American League West Tussle in Texas

Houston vs Oakland: American League West Tussle in Texas

Astros worst to first turnaround continues in Texas

How many times have you heard someone say, “it’s a great time to be a sports fan in Houston?” The answer is much closer to never than it is to often. However, with the Rockets about to open play the NBA Western Conference Final, and the Astros owning the best record in the MLB American League, there’s a huge sports buzz happening in Houston. After a 3-5 season start, the young Astros are 22-8 and they own a six game lead on the Los Angeles Angeles in the AL West. Houston leads the Majors with 57 homeruns.

Oakland Athletics: MLB playoff streak looks like it will end at three seasons

Following three seasons where they advanced to the MLB playoffs, posting a combined 278-208 record, Oakland has hit a huge skid of mediocrity. The Athletics are dead last in the Majors with 13-26 record and that includes a 5-18 recent run. While the offence has been fairly consistent, the A’s sit fifth overall in runs scored with 178, Oakland’s pitching and defense have been very suspect. The Athletics have allowed 183 runs (25th) and they have committed an MLB worst 42 errors over 39 games played.

Athletics vs Astros MLB Prediction: Rookie RHP Lance McCullers makes his MLB debut tonight as he squares off against Athletics LHP Drew Pameranz (2-3 ERA 4.42). McCullers went 3-1 with a sparkling 0.62 ERA during six starts for the Double A Corpus Christie Hooks prior to getting called up. Give us the streaking ‘Stros with a 500 unit wager on the money price posted on the betting board at SportsInteraction.
