The Houston Astros had a shaky start to the season, but have since improved, and come into this game with a record of 19-17 after winning three of their last five games. Houston beat the Angels 5-1 in the last game, with Yuli Gurriel's three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning leading the way.

Houston has the MLB's fourth-best offense, averaging 5.03 runs on 8.83 hits per game. The Astros also lead the league in strikeouts, averaging only 7.22 per game. Kyle Tucker leads the team with 7 home runs, while Yordan Alvarez leads the team with a.342 batting average. Yuli Gurriel leads the team in RBIs with 28.

In this game, the Astros have everything going for them. Houston is currently playing much better, has a far superior offense, and will have the superior pitcher on the mound. Foltynewicz has been abysmal since being released by the Braves, and that trend will continue here. Houston has a top-five offense and will pounce on a pitcher who is struggling. Houston Astros win 8-3, according to the final score prediction.
