Sunday Night Baseball Astros

Price and Musgrove Take the Hill on Sunday Night Baseball

The Boston Red Sox and the Houston Astros will meet at Minute Maid Park for Sunday Night Baseball. The game will be telecast by ESPN and will start around 8:05 EST.

The Red Sox will trot David Price out to the mound in this one. Left hander Price has a 1-1 record and a 5.09 ERA this season. Price is 4-2 with a 2.68 ERA over seven career starts against Houston. He has 61 strikeouts and a 0.93 WHIP over 50 1/3 innings in those games. The Astros have hit just .212 against Price. They have been free swingers as they only have eight walks. In his last start Price allowed three runs on four hits. He had four walks while coercing six strikeouts over six innings against the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday.

Joe Musgrove will start for the Astros. The Right hander is 4-5 with a 4.81 ERA so far this season. He returned from the 10-day disabled list Monday against the Rangers.  Musgrove allowed two runs on five hits in 4 2/3 innings. Musgrove was shut down with shoulder discomfort, and Houston is committed to working him back slowly. He will be limited today in his first career start against the Red Sox

Oddsmakers opened the Red Sox as -115-moneyline favorites versus the Astros, while the game’s total opened at 9. The Astros are now -122-moneyline favorites. The total has held steady.

Houston was a 7-1 winner Saturday against the Red Sox. Bettors on Houston at -111 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (8) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
