The Astros’ offense went in to hyoer drive during the series against the A’s, scoring 33 runs and hitting for a .345 . However, that was then and this is now as the Rays’ pitching staff have held Houston in check. Now with their best pitcher on the hill, Zack Greinke Im betting on the Astros to extend this series for at least one more game. Greinke is high velocity fastball pitcher, thats lost some of his juice but his accuracy is still top notch and and where TB has had problems this season, has been vs these kinds of hurlers ranking 24th against fastballs. On the flipside, Glasnow the Rays starter is also a fast ball pitcher, but as was evident earlier in the post season the Astros were lighting these kinds of pitchers up. The combination of value and desperation has me on the /Astros tonight.
Astros are 8-3 in their last 11 playoff games as an underdog.
Astros are 11-5 in their last 16 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.
Play on Houston to win
