Oakland Athletics – Houston Astros Match Prediction | 10-09-2019 20:10

When it comes to home runs and RBIs, Matt Chapman has taken the lead for his team. Oakland is looking towards Mike Fiers as their starter against Houston on Tuesday. The leading batsman is Ramon Laureano with an average of .284. Oakland is holding a batting average of .250 and opponents are hitting .241. The righty is holding an ERA of 3.64 and is 9-3 on the season with 35 BBs and 78 Ks.

Even with all that he still sits at a respectable ERA on the year and has a chance to right the ship before heading into the playoffs. Miley has been suffering command issues in recent games and has already had a few games where things just seem to snowball out of control for him. Miley makes this start after a bit of a disaster outing against the Mariners where he was yanked after allowing five runs on five hits and a walk without recording an out.

Depending on who is needed in the first half of the series I wouldnt be surprised to see some combination of Sneed, Urguidy, and Valdez to cover the bulk of the innings in this game. They have also announced that this will be a bullpen game for those reasons. This will be the first of what the Astros have said will be two bullpen games in September. The Astros bullpen will serve a larger role for the rest of the season as the club has announced that they will go with a 4-man rotation.

Anderson sports one of the worst K/9 rates in the league at 4.53, so the Astros should certainly be able to put it in play against him. He had to grind in his last start against Houston, tossing just 5 innings and giving up four runs, and had a similar outing his first time against them. He is quite capable of delivering a quality start but does have a few clunkers to his name this year. Anderson has been the other steady part of the rotation for the As this season behind Mike Fiers.

Justin Verlander is on a Cy Young and Hall of Fame trajectory this season. Utter dominance. JV entered another gear in mid-August and has been absolutely ridiculous in his last five starts. He is 30 strikeouts away from 3,000 for his career with four more cracks at it before the regular season ends. All of that even with getting run early from a game by the home plate ump. During that time hes tossed a no-hitter, had three double-digit strikeout games, struck out 47 batters while only walking 2, and sports a 1.21 ERA and 0.43 WHIP in 37.1 innings.
