The Houston Astros and Texas Rangers face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at Globe Life Field. The two teams split the first two games of this series. On Tuesday the Astros scored four runs in the 8th inning to score the 4-3 victory. 

The Astros come into this game with a 38-24 record overall and they have won two of their last three games. The Astros are having quite the season again, but it’s a bit shocking that their offense hasn’t been any better. Houston is averaging 4.13 runs per game which is 22nd in baseball. Yordan Alverez is having a big season hitting 17 home runs and driving in 43 RBIs. Kyle Tucker has also hit 12 home runs and driven in 38 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Rangers who sit with a 29-32 record overall and they might be a little better than the record says. At times the bullpen for the Rangers has been questionable and it cost them again on Tuesday. The Rangers lean on the long ball and are averaging 1.26 runs per game which is 5th best in the league. Adolis Garcia has hit 12 home runs and driven in 41 RBIs.

On the mound for the Astros will be Luis Garcia who sits with a 3-5 record and an ERA of 3.60. In his last start against the Miami Marlins, he went 4.1 innings giving up five hits and five earned runs. 

The Astros are 2-4 in their last six games. The under is 7-0 in Garcia’s last seven road starts. The over is 4-0 in the Astros last four games during game 3 of a series. The under is 7-1 in Garcia’s last eight starts overall. 

Garcia is coming off a bad start, but he still only sits with an ERA of 3.60, and the Rangers are going to struggle to score against him. The Astros are averaging only 4.1 runs per game and they are going to have issues scoring again here. Look for this game to be lower scoring and the under is going to cash.
