The Houston Astros and Los Angeles Angels face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Angel Stadium. 

The Astros come into this game with an 84-47 record overall and they have won three games in a row. The offense hasn’t been great as of late, but they have leaned on the pitching. Over the last three games, the Astros have given up only six runs total. Overall this season the Astros pitching has been giving up 3.51 runs per game which is second in the league. Yordan Alvarez has hit 31 home runs and driven in 80 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Angels who sit with a 57-74 record overall and even though they have struggled most of the season they have won five of their last six games. In the last game against the New York Yankees, the pitching had another strong game giving up only two runs and that led to the 3-2 victory. Shohei Ohtani has hit 30 home runs and driven in 83 RBIs.

On the mound for the Astros is Lance McCullers Jr and he sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 1.69. In his last start against the Houston Astros, he went five innings giving up four hits and zero runs. 

On the mound for the Angels will be Reid Detmers who sits with a 5-4 record and an ERA of 3.47. In his last start against the Toronto Blue Jays, he went 5.1 innings giving up four hits and zero runs. 

The Angels are 1-5 in Detmer’s last six home starts. The Astros are 6-0 in their last six games against a team with a losing record. The over is 4-0 in the Angels last four games against the American League West. The under is 11-1 in McCullers Jr last 1w starts on six days of rest.

McCullers was lights out in the last start giving up zero runs, and I expect that is going to be the case again in this game. The Angels bats haven’t been great this season, and they are going to struggle again in this game against McCullers. The Angels aren’t going to keep up, and the Astros will win -1.5.
