Milwaukee vs. Houston,
06/18/2013 20:10 EDT,
Score: 1 - 10
Money Line: +110 Houston
The Houston Astros host the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday in game one of a three-game set.
These teams are familiar with one another from their time in the National League Central. Milwaukee played eight games in Houston last season. The Astros won five of those eight games.
Jordan Lyles takes the hill for the Astros in this one. In his last start versus the Brewers he threw a complete-game four-hit shutout.
Lyles has been on fir of late. In his last six starts he has posted a 1.67 ERA with a 1.09 WHIP, limiting opposing hitters to a batting average of just .218.
The last time we saw Lyles he threw seven innings of shutout ball against the Mariners.
The Brewers counter with Alfredo Figaro. Figaro has seen most of his action out of the bullpen in his career.
Prior to a solid outing against the lowly Marlins in his last outing, Figaro has been terrible. In his previous career starts, Figaro posted a 7.81 ERA with a 1.77 WHIP.
The Astros are 7-3 in their last 10 home games versus a team with a losing record.
The Brewers are 3-13 in their last 16 interleague games as a favorite. Take Houston.
Good Luck, Razor Ray.
