Betting Pick: Houston Astros vs. Detroit Tigers

Betting Pick: Houston Astros vs. Detroit Tigers

It’s the final game of an early week set between a pair of American League foes in the Motor City. The Houston Astros are on the road as they play the third game of a three-game set with the Detroit Tigers Wednesday night. Houston bombed their way to an 8-1 victory in the opening game of the series on Monday night. The pitching matchup for Tuesday’s middle game of the set saw Wade Miley take the mound for Houston against Detroit’s Ryan Carpenter. 

Houston powered their way to a sixth straight win as they beat up on the Tigers thanks to the long ball. The Astros entered Tuesday’s action with a hefty 6.5-game lead over the Angels in the AL West race. Houston received homers from Jake Marisnick (his fourth), Robinson Chirinos (his sixth), Aledmys Diaz (his fourth) and Alex Bregman (his 13th) in the victory as their recent power surge continued. The offensive outburst was enough for Brad Peacock (4-2) to get the win. He threw five innings, allowing a run on three hits with four walks and three strikeouts before turning things over to the bullpen.

Detroit was toppled in the opening game of this series as they were overpowered by a tough Houston lineup. The Tigers entered Tuesday 6.5 games behind the Twins in the AL Central and hope to gain some ground. Detroit finished with five hits in the contest: Ronny Rodriguez and Josh Harrison each had two hits in the contest. Grayson Grenier drove in the lone Detroit run in the fourth inning. Matthew Boyd (4-3) suffered the loss as he allowed three runs on five hits with two walks and two strikeouts over four innings of work.
