Analysis
The Astros have won 3 straight, the Diamondbacks, just 3 of 10. Offense is the difference; the Diamondbacks are 29th at the moment at .192/.576, while the Astros have surged to 3rd in the last two weeks. The Diamondbacks don't face the Astros often and usually struggle when they do. Two of the three games between them ended in very low totals. It is a very fine pitching matchup today with Gallen facing Verlander. Verlander has just two starts since returning from the IL, but he is as solid as ever, with the opposition hitting just .162 in September. Gallen was sensational vs. the Dodgers last time out, giving up just 1 run on 2 hits over 8 innnings. He is 4-1, with an ERA of just 1.16 L7, bouncing back from a pair of (for him) slightly off starts. Verlander, battling for another Cy Young, will be all in today. Both starters are very fine early. Neither team has seen much of the opposing starter. I like the early total very much. Take the D-backs and Astros to go under in the first five innings.
