The Houston Astros and Detroit Tigers face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at Comerica Park. The Astros have won the first two games of this series. 

The Astros sit with a 91-50, and they have won three games in a row. In each of the three games, the offense has been strong, and it’s going to be important in this game that they run up the score again. The Astros offense is ranked 9th in the league, but the pitching has been the real strength, giving up 3.25 runs per game, which is second in the league. Yordan Alvarez has hit 33 home runs and driven in 84 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Tigers, who sit with a 54-88 record overall, and they have lost three games in a row. The Tigers' offense has been an issue this season, and they are averaging only 3.31 runs per game, which is 30th in the league. The pitching hasn’t been a lot better, giving up 4.46 runs per game.

On the mound for the Astros will be Cristian Javier, who sits with an 8-9 record and an ERA of 3.01. In his last start against the Texas Rangers, he went 5.1 innings, giving up four hits and three runs. 

On the mound for the Tigers will be Joey Wentz who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 4.05. In his last start against the Kansas City Royals, he went 6.2 innings, giving up two hits and zero runs. 

The Tigers are 1-6 in their last seven home games. The Astros are 7-1 in their last eight road games. The under is 5-1-2 in the Tiger's last eight games on Wednesday. The over is 2-0-3 in the Tiger's last games against the American League West. 

Runs are going to be very hard to come by in this game. Wentz is coming off a start where he gave up zero runs. The Tigers have the worst offense in all of baseball and they aren’t going to magically breakout of it here against Javier. Look for a 3-1 or 4-1 type of game and the under is going to cash.
