The Houston Astros did well to rebound from their first game at home. The Astros smashed five runs and gave up two to the Phillies. Houston has played well the entire season, but the fact that they lost Game 1 at home has been a major concern for fans. Houston will lose their home-field advantage in this game Lance McCullers Jr. will be delivered to the mound as their starter in this game. McCullers missed out most of his regular season due to an injury on his forearm. McCullers was 4-2 with his performance and he held an ERA of 2.27.
Players to watch: Jeremy Pena SS (GP 9, AB 42, R 9, H 12, 2B 5, 3B 0, HR 3, RBI 6, TB 26, BB 1, SO 11, SB 0, AVG 0.286, OBP 0.302, SLG 0.619, OPS 0.921, WAR 0), Jose Altuve 2B (GP 9, AB 41, R 4, H 7, 2B 2, 3B 0, HR 0, RBI 0, TB 9, BB 3, SO 12, SB 1, AVG 0.171, OBP 0.227, SLG 0.22, OPS 0.447, WAR 0).
The Philadelphia Phillies will seek their home advantage in this game, but the Astros proved that they are one of the top teams and they will need plenty of support here. Noah Syndergaard will take the nod for the Phillies. Syndergaard pitched in 25 games and he managed to finish with a 10-10 record. Syndergaard has given up an ERA of 3.94 with a WHIP of 1.25. This is not going to be an easy one for Syndergaard and he has plenty of room for improvement. The Phillies will need plenty of support from the plate.
