Take the Astros. The Astros should get the sweep today. Oakland's bats have totally disappeared and their pitching hasn't been much better. The A's will be sending Luzardo to the mound to avoid elimination. Luzardo gave up 3 runs in 3.1 innings his last start and I'm not expecting much offensive help for him in this game. The A's are hitting just .206 in the postseason while allowing their opponents to hit .307. The Astros are really starting to hit with a .269 average in the playoffs. They have an excellent lineup that really underachieved in my opinion during the regular season. Astros starter Urquidy was solid in his other playoff start and he should get the runs he needs that will secure an Astros sweep.
