The Houston Astros Start a Three Game Weekend Series with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
The Houston Astros will look to build of their success of late as they start a three game home series with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Friday night. Houston has more wins against the Angels than any other team they’ve faced this year as they will look for their tenth against LA.
They will send Dallas Keuchel (Pictured on the Left) to the mound opposite Los Angeles’ starter Jason Vargas. Keuchel is 1-3 with a 5.54 ERA in his last six starts after his last start ended up being his shortest start of the season as he allowed five runs in 3 1/3 innings against the Oakland Athletics. He will look to keep the LA offensive production at a minimum, which won’t be easy with a lineup that is as stacked as theirs. Their leadoff hitter and all star Mike Trout is hitting .339 in the 15 games against the Astros this year.
The offense will look to continue the streak their on as they have not been shut out since a game in Oakland on the 15th of August. First pitch is set for Friday at 7:10 pm from Minute Maid Park in Houston.
