3-unit Play Take #914 Houston Astros over Los Angeles Angels (7:10pm EST) The Houston Astros are slowly becoming a respectable baseball team. They're 14-9 over their last 23 games and they're starting to bring up top-notch talent everyone has been clamoring for. George Springer has made a huge impact so far and big things are expected of the recently promoted Jon Singleton. But the biggest surprise so far this season has been the Astros starting pitching. Several guys are making big strides and the rotation could end up being the backbone of this team. One of those pitchers is today's starter Brad Peacock. He's still a little rough around the edges, but Peacock has gotten better with each start and has looked downright dominant lately. Over his last three outings, the right-hander has a 3.38 ERA and 1.34 WHIP to go along with a nice 24-6 K/BB ratio. Those aren't spectacular numbers, but when you look at them within the context of his career 4.67 ERA then you can see the progress. He'll face a tough Angel's lineup today. However, they'll be without their best hitter Mike Trout who is nursing a back injury. I still don't think the Astros are getting quite enough respect from linesmakers, so we'll look their way in this one.
