The Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Sunday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.
The Houston Astros need a win after losing eight of their last 10 games. The Astros have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. The Astros have split their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Carlos Correa leads the Astros with 45 hits and 23 RBI while Yuli Gurriel and Kyle Tucker have combined for 85 hits and 58 RBI. Zack Greinke gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 3.27 ERA and 50 strikeouts this season. Greinke is 7-6 with a 4.38 ERA and 103 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Dodgers have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Dodgers have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Mookie Betts leads the Dodgers with 51 hits and 33 RBI while Corey Seager and AJ Pollock have combined for 94 hits and 56 RBI. The Los Angeles Dodgers didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Zack Greinke has allowed seven runs and 13 hits in his last 12 innings, and he's allowing a .227 batting average and .260 on base percentage this season overall. With that said, through 130 at bats against current Dodgers hitters, Greinke is giving up a .347 batting average and .401 on base percentage with 14 home runs. Guys such as Corey Seager and Cody Bellinger have owned Greinke in 20-plus at bats. The Los Angeles Dodgers didn't list a starting pitcher for this game, but they have the offense to support whoever is on the mound and seeing the numbers against the Astros ace, there's a lot to like here with the home team, especially assuming we can probably get a nice price.
I'll back the Dodgers in this Sunday night contest.
