The Houston Astros and Texas Rangers meet Saturday in MLB action at Globe Life Field.

The Houston Astros look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Astros have scored 18 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The Astros have lost seven of their last 10 games when scoring three or less runs. Kyle Tucker leads the Astros with 54 hits and 42 RBI while Carlos Correa and Michael Brantley have combined for 101 hits and 46 RBI. Lance McCullers Jr. gets the ball, and he is 3-3 with a 4.24 ERA and 47 strikeouts this season. McCullers is 1-4 with a 4.65 ERA and 60 strikeouts in his career against the Rangers.

The Texas Rangers need a win after losing seven of their last nine games. The Rangers have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last six games. The Rangers have won six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Isiah Kiner-Falefa leads the Rangers with 59 hits and 10 RBI while Nick Solak and Joey Gallo have combined for 84 hits and 48 RBI. Kyle Gibson gets the ball, and he is 2-6 with a 5.87 ERA and 54 strikeouts this season. Gibson is 4-2 with a 2.90 ERA and 39 strikeouts in his career against the Astros.

The Astros are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series, 38-13 in their last 51 Saturday games and 4-12 in their last 16 road games. The Rangers are 17-41 in their last 58 games as an underdog and 18-38 in their last 56 overall. The under is 5-1 in Astros last 6 overall. The under is 6-1-1 in Rangers last 8 overall. The Astros are 18-7 in the last 25 meetings in Texas and 35-17 in the last 52 meetings.

I don't trust either one of these pitchers and I don't trust either one of these teams. Lance McCullers has an 8.84 ERA on the road this season through 19.1 innings while Kyle Gibson has a 5.40 ERA this month through 23.1 innings. This is the perfect pitching matchup for both of these teams to break out of their offensive slump. Give me the over nine runs.
