|Home Team:||OAK A's|
|Away Team:||HOU Astros|
Let's right the ship today and get on another positive run. Yes. I do not panic after couple bad days same as I didn't go dancing in the streets after winning streaks. Let's just win today.
The A's have been really dominated by the Astros this season as after winning the first game of the first series this season played in Houston, the A's surrendered the other two of that series and then were swept here at the Coliseum in another three games being outscored in those six games 10-43.
Mengden and McCullers are not bad pitchers at all. But, there is a problem particularly evident in relation to today's game. McCullers is on his way down the way he [performs lately getting worse with each outing. He is getting his wins and somehow is dragging himself from the troubles he gets in, but, he is not what he used to be at the beginning of the season.
Mengden has a problem facing the Astros sporting 6.23 ERA with no wins (0-4) in 6 starts against them. Two of those came this season and one was disastrous while the second one was better,
My point is that putting those two pitchers against each other and expecting us to think the under is imminent is not going to work.
