The Houston Astros were able yesterday day to acquire their feet against the Athletics in Oakland. Zack Greinke placed on a clinic against the As to prevent a sweep and brought out his arm. Greinke revealed why he was traded for by the Astros as he put on a perfect operation in seven innings of work.
He allowed just 1-run to give his team a 4-1 win over Oakland. It had been their sole win in the series over the weekend. Believe it or not, the Astros were on a losing streak. They had declines against the White Sox leading into the weekend, so it hasnt been smooth sailing for the Astros recently.
When it concerns the AL West, this doesnt impact the Astros. That is under management, as they have a 7.5-game lead to the division. The As could have gotten over 6.5 games with a win on Sunday, but they cam up short on this regard. In any case, it turned out to be a weekend to Oakland in their quest for a wildcard. They are 1.5 games back of the Rays, so easily within striking distance.
The Astros can get those declines this weekend. Theyre at Comerica Park for a show from the 37-84 Tigers. The Tigers and the Orioles are the only teams in the majors without 40 wins, Detroit with 37 and Baltimore at 39.
If the Astros focus and play their sport, this shouldnt be a difficult series for them. Former Blue Jay, Edwin Jackson, who was a mess in Toronto, will be making his third start using the Tigers in 2019. Edwin was a Tiger back in 2009 when the group was a competitor, however, things are a lot different because hes been here. Wade Miley will counter tops in this place to the Astros.

The Blue Jays had sufficient of Edwin Jackson and introduced him after submitting a 11.12 ERA in eight appearances, five of which have been starts. They have been desperate for arms within their rotation and Jackson was a inexpensive option. They could not continue to watch him put up that type of work on the mound even though losses and wins do not mean this year. It seems sensible to discharge him, with the Jays needing to find a number of the men involved with the minors as well.
He was introduced, and to his satisfaction, yet another team came calling for his or her services. And thus far, its been a great start for Jacksons second stint with the Tigers. He has a 2.38 ERA in 11.1 innings of work from Detroit. Yet, his overall ERA this year still stands at a horrendous 8.62 using a 1.84 WHIP and .401 OBA.
If he can continue to keep this moving against the Astros 14, I would be surprised. TheStros didnt have a good showing in the plate against the As this past weekend and theyre going to want to take out some frustration on the Tigers. The teams which Edwin held down were the Royals and Mariners, so he has a battle on Monday.
Wade Miley has been a tremendous purchase for the Astros. They lost plan B and Charlie Morton has worked out. Miley goes to Comerica Park with a 3.11 ERA and 1.18 WHIP. He gets lost in the combination in this spinning, failing to find much recognition on a team.
This Tigers roster has really been in a position to strike on him, though. They are hitting .302 with a .359 OBP and 22 runs. Miley has not been as sharp on the street as well. He owns a 3.97 ERA and also 1.32 WHIP on the road as opposed to a 2.02 ERA and 0.99 WHIP. Having said all that, I still think that the Astros win this match. The costs on theStros are getting absurd, though over the runline. The OVER in a cost looks like pick in Detroit on Monday.
