Six-run 10th inning sends Astros to win
Houston broke open a 2-2 game in the 10th inning Tuesday night by scoring six runs to record the 8-2 victory. George Springer went 1-for-5 with a home run, two runs and two RBIs to help lead the Astros offense. Alex Bregman went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, a walk, two runs and two RBIs. Jose Altuve finished 2-for-5, while Kyle Tucker contributed a two-run pinch-hit triple and scored a run. Hector Rondon earned the win in relief as he struck out one in a perfect inning of work.
Gonzalez paces offense in loss
No one had multiple hits Tuesday on the Rockies, with Carlos Gonzalez highlighting the effort by going 1-for-4 with a double plus a run and an RBI. Nolan Arenado was 1-for-4 with a double and a run. Garrett Hampson finished 1-for-3 with a walk. Wade Davis suffered the loss as he surrendered five earned runs on four hits with one strikeout and one walk in 1 1/3 innings.
Charlie Morton (11-2, 2.96 ERA) will draw the start for Houston, while Jon Gray (8-7, 5.44) is on the mound for Colorado.
MLB Betting Trends
The under is 9-1-1 in the last 11 Astros interleague games. Houston is 46-18 in its last 64 games overall.
The Rockies are 7-2 in their last nine games overall. The over is 18-7-1 in the last 26 meetings overall.
Tuesday's game was one big inning away from going well under the total. These are two good starting pitchers, with advanced stats showing Gray to be one of the unluckiest pitchers in baseball this season. Even at Coors Field, we can have low-scoring games and the Rockies are only 44-48 on over-unders this season. I think this is a good spot to bet on the pitching and against a high total.
