Houston Astros at Oakland A's
Got a good young pitcher in Astro's Jarred Cosart. The kid has nasty stuff and he's fearless on the road. Oakland with Colon got knocked out yesterday and I have a feeling A's Jarrod Parker's going to have a touch match up. Oakland may wake up here, but the First 5 innings might be interesting. This match up was played out in Houston 5-4 Astro's winner, but that score due to 3 runs scored in the bottom of the 9th for the rally and the upset. Houston 2-8 in last 10 games have not won back to back in quite sometime however the back to back sequence has happened with better percentage on the road. Cosart has already shown better stuff on the road with 0.86 ERA and 0.95 WHIP coming off a non quality home start against Boston. Cosart had the lead in Minnesota and tied game in Toronto midway through. He also blanked Tampa for the win. Parker has 2 wins in a row since going with a decision for 6 games in a row. His home ERA is 4.65 compared to 3.42 on the road and quality start also declines. Looking for another ND from Parker and Houston to lead half way.
HOUSTON ASTROS First 5 innings (use alternate RL option) -0.5 runs at +235 for 1 unit(L)
HOUSTON ASTROS +236 for 1 unit(W)
