Houston Astros along with the Oakland Athletics step up on the field for a preview of a postseason series from the American League.
Oakland would love for that to take place, due to their postseason prospects are up in the air. A struggle with the Astros in the postseason would mean they did good from today until October.
The Athletics need wins down the stretch if they need to be playing with postseason baseball. That is a foregone conclusion for the Astros. We only need to learn what seed that the Astros are likely to have. Oakland hold an advantage. It is between Cleveland and Oakland. The Red Sox are far back and they only threw in the towel together using all the shooting of GM Dave Dombrowski.
There is also the chase for advantage in the Wild Card Game. The Rays are only a match up on the A’s for homefield. So, is a great deal going on here which Oakland are playing . The only real promise is that they won’t catch the Astros. The’Stros hold a effect on the Athletics to get 1st in the branch. That is not going to be in query. All left to do to Houston would be to attempt to clinch the top seed in baseball.
The Astros will go into the postseason as one of the very well-rounded teams and have been in a good place. I would have to say that they ARE the team. That I will choose the clutchness of Justin Verlander over Clayton Kershaw any day in October, although you can make the argument that it’s the Dodgers.
You will find teams that are more attractive on the market, until the Dodgers may show they can play well under pressure. Wade Miley got rocked in his latest outing. He will get an Opportunity to bounce back against the A’s at Minute Maid Park tonight. The A’s will counter Tanner Roark, former National. Head below to our free Athletics vs. Astros select.

It was not a pretty spectacle for Wade Miley in his most recent showing. Overall, 2019 was a great season for Miley. He is having one of the greatest seasons of his career and signed with a contender. Miley will have an opportunity. Miley didn’t look like he was ready for October against the Mariners. He was rocked for 5 hits and 5 earned runs with no recording out 1.
Despite this effort, the Astros stormed all the way back to get a 11-9 win. A terrible group like the Mariners make it straightforward to complete comebacks like that. However, against the boys, the Astros are not going to have exactly the exact identical outcome. Be aware that it was the very first game since June 22nd that Miley enabled more than just 3 runs in a game. He travelled 12 straight looks with less than 4 runs.
Miley has been strong against the Athletics in his profession, as they are hitting .203 in 128 at-bats. Oakland have recorded 8 runs in that time and only two home runs. I am under the impression that Miley is expected for a response against the A’s tonight. Conversely, the Astros’ bats are red-hot against Roark. They’re hitting .357 with a .403 OBP in 56 at-bats. Roark was pitching well since getting traded to Oakland, however, as he concludes Tuesday with a 2.70 ERA and 1.12 WHIP. As a Athletic, Roark has posted a 2.70 ERA and also 1.12 WHIP.
Roark has not been great on the road this past season. He has a 4.10 ERA in 63.2 innings complete, along with a 4.26 ERA on the street as a Athletic. Roark has prevented a bad start with the A far, but that looks like a spot where he is vulnerable to getting struck hard. The Astros have proven that ability against Roark in the past. Look to respond, while Roark regresses on Tuesday night. I’m on the Astros here.
