Rickenbach MLB *8* OVER 8.5 runs in Houston vs Arizona @ 2:10 ET - With Houston's 9-2 win yesterday the over is 4-0 in Arizona's last 4 games and 4-1 in the Astros last 5 games. Houston has averaged 6.4 runs per game in their last five games while the Diamondbacks had won 6 straight and averaged 5.2 runs per game in their six games prior to yesterdays 9-2 loss. The Arizona offense will get right back on track against a struggling Astros hurler today. Collin McHugh gets the start and the right-handers 3-0 mark in his last 3 starts is quite deceiving. He's been "lucky" to say the least as McHugh has given up 25 hits in his last 18 innings on the mound. The right-hander also walked 4 batters in just 5 innings of work in his most recent start. All the base-runners he has been allowing is going to catch up with him here. Arizona's lineup was red hot before being held to just two runs in yesterday's game and they resume the hot hitting here as McHugh gets pounded again. The Diamondbacks send southpaw Robbie Ray to the mound this afternoon and he's winless in his last 3 starts with a 4.32 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP. He's been far from unhittable and the Astros have plenty of confidence at the plate right now with the way they've been pounding the ball. The over is 10-1 in Astros interleague games this season. The over is 9-4 in Dbacks road games this season with a posted total of 8 or 8.5 runs. Play OVER 8.5 runs in Houston as an *8* selection Sunday.
