Astros Struggling Mightily On The Road

The Houston Astros have been a major disappointment this season. After making it to the ALDS last year, hopes were high for the ‘Stros but the team currently sits last in the AL West and has been downright terrible on the road. The Astros are 7-16 this season away from Minute Maid Park - the third-worst record in the MLB - which includes a loss in their first game against the LA Angels Friday.

Shark Bites
  • Mike Trout has a lifetime .323 BA against Dallas Keuchel, but has strikeout rate of 35.5 percent.
  • The UNDER is 7-2 in the Astros’s past nine games.
  • The Angels are 4-1 in their past five games hosting the Astros.

Dallas Keuchel has completely fallen apart after his Cy Young winning campaign last season. Keuchel – who has always been a groundball pitcher – has been given up the second-most hits in the MLB this season with opponents registering an average of 7.3 hits per game. The lefty has surrendered five or more runs in four of his past six starts.

The Angels will be hoping that Jered Weaver can put together back-to-back solid outings, as the right-hander has been wildly inconsistent during May. Weaver has gone six-plus innings in three starts this month while allowing a combined six runs in those outings compared to 15 runs in the two starts he failed to reach the sixth.
