The Texas Rangers and Houston Astros face off on Tuesday in an MLB showdown at MinuteMaid Park. On Monday it was the Astros that secured the 1-0 victory. 

The Astros sit with a 58-76 record overall and on Monday and on Monday they couldn’t put together a good inning. The offense has been fine for the Texas Rangers but the pitching has been a big issue. The Rangers are giving up 4.58 runs per game which is 23rd in the league, and they are going to need a good start in this game. Corey Seager has hit 29 home runs and driven in 72 RBIs so far this season. 

The Astros sit with an 87-48 record overall and they have won two games in a row. The Astros offense has been good, but the real strength has been the pitching. The Astros are giving up only 3.27 runs per game which is second best in the league. The top offensive player has been Yordan Alvarez and he has hit 31 home runs and driven in 82 RBIs so far this season. 

On the mound for the Rangers will be Glenn Otto who sits with a 6-8 record and an ERA of 4.82. In his last start against the Boston Red Sox, he went five innings giving up four hits and three runs.

On the mound for the Astros will be Framber Valdez who sits with a 14-4 record and an ERA of 2.63. In his last start against the Texas Rangers, he gave up seven hits and two runs. 

The Astros are 8-1 in their last nine games against a team with a losing record. The over is 4-0 in the Rangers last four during Game 2 of a series. The under is 5-1 in the Rangers last six games against a team with a winning record. 

The Rangers bats are going to be ice cold here against Valdez who sits with an ERA of 2.63. The Astros might not run up the score, but they are going to score enough to get the job done. Back the Astros on the run line.
