The Tornoto Blue Jays and Houston Astros face off on Friday in an American League MLB showdown at Minute Maid Park. 

The Houston Astros come into this game with a 6-6 record overall but they have lost two games in a row. Over the last two games the offense has only scored two total runs, and they need to find a way to get the offense going. Alex Bregman has been the top player for the Astros hitting two home runs and driving in eight RBI’s. Yordan Alveraz is also having a strong season hitting three home runs and driving in six RBI’s. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Blue Jays who sit with an 8-5 record overall and on Thursday the offense scored three runs on the way to hte one run victory. The Blue Jays have won two games in a row and during those two games the pitching staff only gave up three runs total. Vladimir Guerro has been the top player for the Blue Jays hitting five home runs and driving in 11 RBI’s.

Getting the start for the Blue Jays will be Ross Stripling and in six innings so far this season he has given up three hits and two runs. Stripling is going to need to have a big game. 

On the mound for the Astros will be Justin Verlander who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 0.69. Verlander has gone 13 innings total this year giving up six hits and one run. 

The Blue Jays are 8-2 in their last 10 games against the American League West. The Astros are 1-4 in Verlander’s last five starts against a team with a winning record. The under is 11-1in the Blue Jays last 12 road games. The under is 5-1 in the Blue Jays last six games. 

Verlander should really be 2-0 right now, but the one game Houston just didn’t give him enough run support. Look for the Blue Jays bats to be ice cold, and the Astros are going to fail to give Verlander much run support. Look for a low scoring game and the under will cash.
