The Arizona Diamondbacks and Houston Astros meet Sunday in MLB action at Minute Maid Park.

The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Diamondbacks have won five straight games when scoring four or more runs. David Peralta leads the Diamondbacks with 53 hits and 30 RBI while Christian Walker and Nick Ahmed have combined for 100 hits and 56 RBI. Madison Bumgarner gets the ball, and he is 0-4 with a 8.53 ERA and 19 strikeouts this season. Bumgarner is 4-2 with a 3.19 ERA and 45 strikeouts in his career against the Astros.

The Houston Astros look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Astros have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four straight games. The Astros have lost seven of their last nine games when scoring three or less runs. Carlos Correa leads the Astros with 47 hits and 23 RBI while Kyle Tucker and Yuli Gurriel have combined for 92 hits and 62 RBI.

The Diamondbacks are 0-4 in their last 4 Sunday games, 1-8 in their last 9 during game 3 of a series and 7-22 in their last 29 overall. The Astros are 4-1 in their last 5 interleague home games, 20-7 in their last 27 Sunday games and 56-21 in their last 77 games as a home favorite. The over is 5-1-1 in Diamondbacks last 7 overall. The under is 4-1-1 in Astros last 6 overall. The over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

Madison Bumgarner has allowed 12 runs and 23 hits in his last 14.1 innings while Jose Urquidy has allowed five runs and nine hits in 16.2 innings this season. Bumgarner has been awful this season and no matter how many times you try to convince yourself things are going to turn around, he puts up another stinker. I have no choice but to side with the Astros and to take the RL to shave down the ML price.
