Houston is coming in with the better offense and in this game the better pitching as well. The Astros are also coming in with a better team ERA. Rich Hill has thrown good for the Rays and has ended up throwing good, but the problem is Hill has given up a ton of runs and that has led to a lot of problems for the Rays whose offense has to come from behind and has not really made it up. Final Score, Houston Astros win 6-3.
