1* Houston (8:10 ET): The first place Astros had no trouble taking Monday's series opener in this battle of division leaders and w/ Dallas Keuchel on the bump Tuesday, I see a repeat result taking place. Keuchel has yet to taste defeat here at Minute Maid Park in 2015 and his 1.39 ERA and 0.943 WHIP here shows that's no fluke.
You just had to know that the Royals couldn't go on winning road games forever, so perhaps last night's result shouldn't have come as too much of a shock. Still though, the Astros' performance was impressive nonetheless. This team is most certainly for real. Now 26-16 at home for the year, this series is a chance for Houston to establish itself as the top team in the American League.
Meanwhile, it's not Houston, but rather KC starter Danny Duffy that has a problem Tuesday. Over his L3 starts, he has a 7.42 ERA and woeful 2.024 WHIP. The good news w/ his last start is that he didn't walk anyone after issuing 10 bases on ball his previous two. But overall, it's been four straight starts w/o lasting longer than five innings. Keuchel is coming off his third complete game effort of the season where he struck out a season high 12 batters. A massive pitching edge goes to the home team in this one. 1* Houston
