Schule's 10* MLB Total Recall TERMINATOR - *JUDGEMENT DAY*
Houston vs. Texas,
08/04/2015 20:05 EDT,
Score: 3 - 4
Total: -112/+9 Over
This is a 10* play on [email protected] to go OVER the total.
The Astros are hot, winning 11 of 16 since the All Star break. They've leapfrogged the Angels in the AL West, now sitting three games clear of Los Angeles. They came up short in a 12-9 loss at Texas last night, and I think we'll see another slugfest in Arlington tonight.
Yovani Gallardo will toe the rubber for the Rangers, and he's coming off back to back wins. Gallardo (7-9, 3.39 ERA) has allowed 10 runs on 16 hits over 10 innings in wins over the Yankees and Angels in his last two outings. The Astros have hit him pretty hard in past meetings, with a team batting average of .308. He's 1-1 with a 6.52 ERA in two starts versus Houston this season.
The Astros hand the ball to Dan Straily, who gets the call up from Triple-A to make a spot start. Straily hasn't pitched since July 8, when he two runs on three hits over six innings in a loss at Cleveland. He's only appeared in two games this year, but he was 13-12 with a 4.54 ERA over the last three seasons.
Pitchers have really struggled to keep the ball in the park in Texas lately, and four of the last five meetings in this series have gone over the total.
