The Los Angeles Angels and Houston Astros face off on Tuesday in an MLB showdown at Minute Maid Park.

On Monday it was the Astros that came away with the 8-3 victory. There were three different innings that the Astros scored two runs.

The Astros come into this game with a 6-4 record overall but over their last five games, they only have two wins. The pitching at times has been a big issue for this team, and it needs to be something that is better again in this game. Alex Bregman has been the top player for the Astros hitting two home runs and driving in seven RBIs. Yordan Alvarez has also hit three home runs and driven in six RBIs.

On the other side of this matchup is the Angels who sit with a 6-5 record overall and they had won three games in a row before losing on Monday. In the three wins, the offense was strong, and they are going to need to get the offense going in this game. Brandon Marsh has been the top offensive player for the Angels hitting a home run and driving in eight RBIs. 

Getting the start for the Angels will be Patrick Sandoval and in his first start of the season against the Marlins he went four innings giving up three hits and one run. 

On the mound for the Astros will be Framber Valdez and on the season he sits with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 0.93. In his last start against the Angels he went three innings giving up two hits and one run.

The Angels are 5-1 in their last six games. The Astros are 16-6 in their last 22 games played on Tuesday. The over is 8-3 in the Angels last 11 games played on Tuesday. The under is 11-4-1 in the Astros last 16 games. The Angels are 21-46 in the last 67 meetings. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings. 

The under has been a strong play when both of these teams face off and I expect both starting pitchers in this game are going to have success. Look for both teams to struggle to score and it’s going to be a low-scoring game. There isn’t a strong play on the side, but the under is going to cash.
