On the mound for the A’s is Mason Miller who sits with an 0-2 record and an ERA of 3.09. The A’s are going to need Mason to have a very good start here, or this is going to be a long game.

Shane's Free Pick

The Astors bats are hot, and they are going to find success again in this game. Look for the Astros to have no issue run up the score against Mason Miller. The Stros are going to score at least seven or eight runs here and that will be the difference as the Astros are going to get the job done here.
