The Philadelphia Phillies and Houston Astros meet Wednesday in MLB action at Minute Maid Park. The Philadelphia Phillies look for a win after splitting their last 8 games. The Houston Astros look for a win after winning 6 of their last 9 games.

The Philadelphia Phillies have scored 11 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 4 of their last 6 games. The Phillies have won 5 of their last 7 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Alec Bohm leads the Phillies with 164 hits and 72 RBI, while Rhys Hoskins and JT Realmuto have combined for 283 hits and 162 RBI. Bailey Falter gets the ball, and he is 6-4 with a 3.90 ERA and 74 strikeouts this season. This will be Falter’s first career game against the Astros.

The Phillies are 5-1 in their last 6 Wednesday games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Astros are 6-1 in their last 7 Wednesday games and 36-15 in their last 51 home games. The under is 7-3 in Phillies last 10 road games. The over is 4-1-1 in Astros last 6 interleague games. The Phillies are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

This game means nothing to either side, but I'd assume the Philadelphia Phillies will be eager for a bounce back showing after last night. Also, Bailey Falter has been better on the road, where he has a 2.47 ERA and .228 allowed batting average. Framber Valdez has had his struggles at home, where he has a 3.76 ERA and .247 allowed batting average compared to his 2.27 ERA on the road. Both teams will have their eyes on the playoffs. Give me the plus money with the Phillies.
