The Houston Astros and Cleveland Guardians face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at Minute Maid Park. These two teams have played two games so far in this series and each team has won a game. 

The Astros come into this game with a 28-16 record overall and the offense got back on the right track on Tuesday scoring seven runs on the way to the victory. The strength of this team all season is the pitching, and they are giving up only 3.23 runs per game. Kyle Tucker has been the top player this season hitting eight home runs and driving in 29 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Guardians who sit with an 18-21 record overall and they only managed three runs on Tuesday, which led to the loss. The offense for Cleveland has been the strength, but at times the pitching has been an issue. The Guardians are averaging 4.62 runs per game which is 8th in the MLB. Jose Ramirez has been the top player for Cleveland hitting 11 home runs and driving in 43 RBIs.

On the mound for the Guardians is Cal Quantrill who sits with a 1-2 record overall and an ERA of 3.48. In his last start against the Reds, Quantrill went seven innings giving up five hits and one run. 

On the mound for the Astros is Cristian Javier who sits with a 2-2 record overall and an ERA of 2.87. In his last start against the Rangers, he went six innings, giving up three hits and one run. 

Cleveland is 1-5 in Quantrill’s last six starts. The Astros are 6-1 in Javier’s last seven home starts against a team with a losing record. The Under is 5-0 in Quantrill's last 5 starts against the. American League West.

Both of the starting pitchers are coming off a game where they gave up only one run, and I expect the pitching is going to be strong for both teams in this game. The Guardians only scored three runs in the last game, and they won’t finish with more than that here. This game is staying under the total. Back the under.
