4-Unit Play. #977. Take Over 9.5 Runs Texas vs. Houston (Wednesday @ 8:05pm est)
At some point Kaz is going to get hit hrad with his new ballclub in Houston and it is possibly here. He faced Texas earlier this year with the Astros and gave up 3 earned runs in what was a 7-5 win for Texas in Arlington when he was with the Athletics. Since the trade to the Astros he has been basically unhittable at this point as he has given up 6 hits in about 15 innings and has won each of those games by a score of 4-0 and 3-0. So now has he faces a Texas team who he nearly no hit back in Oakland where he went 8 innings and gave up 1 earned runs in a 7-0 rout look for that to change today. It's a hitters ballpark, Kaz is going to get hit hard at some point in when he is with the Astros, there were only runs scored yesterday as both bats will be itching, the total is high here to begin with and with the revenge the Ranger bats have today after being no-hit, this game likely goes over. Combine that with Nick Martinez, who pitched well against the Giants winning the contest 6-3 to his credit and giving up 2 earned runs in 6.1 innings and what you have here is a let down for Martinez. Prior to that he had given up 22 earned runs in about 22 innings. Look for the contest to be high scoring here as the Astros will see some hittable pitches and surprisingly Texas will get to Kazmir a bit earlier today as this contest dips over the posted total this evening.
