The Houston Astros and Arizona Diamondbacks face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Chase Field. The Astros have won the first two games of this series. 

Astros Pitching Has Been Elite

The Astros pitching has been elite heading into this game and in thie first couple games of this series they have given up only one run. The offense hasn’t been great either and they have put up only three runs. The Astros are averaging 5.08 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.3 runs per game. The offense is ranked 5th while the pitching is ranked 10th. On the moud for the Astros will be Cristian Javier who sits with a 9-5 record and an ERA of 4.73.

Diamondbacks Clinch Playoff Spot

The Diamondbacks have clinched a playoff spot and there has to be some question about how many guys they will rest in this game. The Diamondbacks are averaging 4.63 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.67 runs per game. The offense is ranked 14th in the league while the pitching is ranked 20th. 

Shane’s Free Pick

I have some major concerns about who the Diamondbacks are going to start in this game. They have clinched a playoff spot and there isn’t much to play for here. Javier has been good this season and the Diamondbacks bats are going to be ice cold here. Their lack of scoring will be the difference here as the Astros are able to get the job done. Back the Astrons on the money line to cash here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
