Total: 9.00 | -105.00 Under
Cleveland went 2-1 at Oakland to open the second half, but it fell flat in yesterday's series opening 4-3 loss here at Oakland. The Tribe have seen the total go under in three straight and I expect that trend to continue here. Houston has seen the total go under in two straith, bouncing back from a 4-0 defeat to the White Sox in its previous outing. Triston McKenzie (1-3, 5.47 ERA) gets the nod for the visitors, and he comes in off a strong start in his final outing before the break, allowing one hit and striking out nine over seven scoreless against the Royals. He'll be opposed by Luis Garcia (6-5, 3.06), who gave up one run over five innings in a no-decision to the A's in his last start. Look for these two young starting hurlers to be the main focal point of tomorrow's summaries on this contest; the play is the under!
T.M. Prediction: 3-2 Astros.
