Astros dominate series opener

Houston picked up an 8-1 victory Monday night at Detroit for its sixth consecutive win to improve to 27-15 overall and 11-11 on the road. The Astros broke a scoreless tie with a three-run second inning and rolled from there. Robinson Chirinos led the way as he went 1-for-2 with a home run, two walks, two runs and two RBIs. Jake Marisnick went 2-for-3 with a home run, two runs and two RBIs. Aledmys Diaz ended the game 2-for-4 with a solo homer. Alex Bregman was 1-for-5 with a home run and two RBIs. Brad Peacock picked up the win as he allowed one earned run on three hits with three strikeouts and four walks over five innings of work. Wade Miley will start tonight for Houston as he enters with a 3-2 record, 3.18 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with 30 strikeouts over 45 1/3 innings.

Tigers stumble at home

Detroit lost 8-1 at home Monday night against Houston to drop to 18-21 overall and 9-9 at home. Ronny Rodriguez helped lead the Tigers offensively as he was 2-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base. Josh Harrison went 2-for-4 with a double. Jeimer Candelario finished 1-for-4 and scored a run. Matthew Boyd suffered the loss as he gave up three earned runs on five hits with two strikeouts and two walks over four innings of work. Ryan Carpenter starts tonight as he comes in having made one start, giving up six earned runs on eight hits with two strikeouts and one walk over five innings in a 13-0 home loss against the Angesl on May 9.

MLB Betting Trends


The Astros are 6-1 in their last seven games versus Detroit. The total has gone over in five of the last six Houston games on the road.


The Tigers are 2-4 in their last six games overall. Detroit is 5-10 in its last 15 games versus AL opponents.


This game could be a bloodbath, metaphorically speaking. Not only is Houston red-hot, but it will send up a lineup full of powerful right-handed bats against a mediocre lefty in Carpenter who didn't fool anyone his last start. Carpenter has a bad track record at the MLB level and I can't see him having much success here. Miley is the type of lefty who should frustrate a Tigers lineup lacking experience at many spots plus talent. Look for the Astros to roll to a seventh win.
