Back-To-Back Wins Not In The Cards For Astros?

The home-and-home series between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Houston Astros heads to the desert Wednesday. The Astros took Game 2 of the series Tuesday but that might be a bad omen, as Jose Altuve and company have lost their past six games coming off a win. In those six games, the Astros have been outscored 34-15 while being shut out twice.

SHARK BITES
  • Jake Lamb is 6-for-12 with 4 XBH in the past 3 games.
  • The Diamondbacks are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games against the Astros.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the Astros’ last 7 games.

Taijuan Walker has been a bad luck charm for the D-backs, as the team has lost its past six games that the righty has started. Walker has a 4.81 ERA in that span but the D-backs’ bats have averaged just 2.5 runs of support for their pitcher. Walker has faced the Astros 11 times in his career, the most of any one team, and has posted a 4.50 ERA in those outings.

The Astros will start Charlie Morton, who is in search of his 10th win of the season. Morton has been a steady presence in the ’Stros rotation with a 3.53 ERA and a 45/15 K/BB ratio over his past seven starts. The righty has pitched at least 5.0 innings in each of his starts this season and has only allowed more than four earned runs once.
