Total: 8.00 | -110.00 Under
Two teams vying for a better playoff spot in their respective conferences collide in interleague action on Tuesday and in my opinion, the one has D-U-E-L written all over it.
Lance McCullers is 8-2 with a 3.23 ERA for the Astros. He most recently allowed four runs with eight strikeouts over six innings in a win over the Mariners.
The right-hander has now posted at least eight strikeouts in five straight starts and note that he's 6-0 with a 3.12 ERA on the road.
The home side goes with Walker Buehler, who is 11-1 with a 2.19 ERA. He most recently went seven scoreless in a win over the Giants. Over 135 innings of work this year he owns a huge 139:31 K:BB and tiny 0.90 WHIP.
The stage is set for these two competent starting hurlers to battle deep.
The play is the under.
Good luck, NP
