Rickenbach MLB *10* Top Play OVER 8 runs -105 in Oakland vs Houston @ 4:05 ET - The A's Rich Hill has an interesting dichotomy that has developed so far this season. He's been great on the road but struggled at home. As we enter the 2nd month of the season this will be Hill's 3rd home start of the young season. Though he's been lights out on the road this season, the Oakland southpaw has gone 0-2 with a 6.43 ERA at home and that ERA could easily have been even worse as Hill has a 2.29 WHIP in home games. Putting baserunners on against a powerful Astros lineup can prove to be dangerous. Yes, Houston has struggled at the plate this season as shown by their batting average but they are still putting together a solid slugging percentage due to good power in the lineup. After getting shutout yesterday I look for the Houston bats to respond today and they certainly will need to because their starting pitcher, Doug Fister, is struggling miserably. Fister is 0-3 with a 5.60 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP in his last 3 starts. He has given up 5 homers in his 4 starts this season and he walked 7 in his most recent outing. Fister has given up 15 earned runs on 29 hits in just 15 and 1/3 innings in his last 3 starts against the A's. Oakland's bats should do plenty of damage here in a day game with the wind blowing out. The over is 10-4 in Houston road games this season and the over is 3-1 in Astros games against left-handed starters this season. The Houston bullpen has a 6.80 ERA on the road this season. *10* OVER in Oakland
