Houston Astros

The Houston Astros, currently sitting as the number two team in the AL West, boast a respectable 41-34 record heading into this series. They enter the game with two consecutive wins, having defeated the New York Mets 10-8 in a high-scoring affair on Wednesday. The victory showcased the Astros’ offensive prowess, with Yanier Diaz and Chas McCormick launching two-run homers. Phil Maton, who earned his first win of the season on the mound, contributed to their success.

JP France to start for Houston.

Taking the mound for the Astros on Friday will be J.P. France. The right-handed pitcher has shown promise this season, boasting a solid ERA of 3.42 over 47 innings of play. In his previous start, France allowed two earned runs with four hits. His last game was against Cincinnati, and the pitcher threw for a total of 6.2 innings. France had shown much promise and is considered highly valuable to Houston after his draft pick 2018 when he limited six of his opponents to throw or fewer runs.
While France’s performances have been noteworthy, it’s worth mentioning that the Astros’ bullpen has played a crucial role in their success. The Houston bullpen has been allowing just 3.9 runs per game, which ranks them second fewest in the MLB. The team has also dealt with the injury of Yordan Alvarez, but Alex Bregman has stepped up admirably, finding his rhythm and contributing 10 home runs and 44 RBI this season.

Players to watch: Alex Bregman 3B (GP 74, AB 286, R 42, H 71, 2B 9, 3B 2, HR 10, RBI 44, TB 114, BB 39, SO 42, SB 3, AVG 0.248, OBP 0.341, SLG 0.399, OPS 0.74, WAR 1.7, Jose Abreu 1B (GP 72, AB 276, R 21, H 62, 2B 11, 3B 0, HR 4, RBI 33, TB 85, BB 19, SO 74, SB 0, AVG 0.225, OBP 0.279, SLG 0.308, OPS 0.587, WAR -1.1.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers, currently ranked third in the NL West with a solid 41-33 record, have been on a roll lately. They enter the series with back-to-back victories, most recently defeating the Los Angeles Angels 2-0 in a dominant performance on Wednesday. Victor Gonzalez secured the win on the mound, while Freddie Freeman and Miguel Vargas contributed to the offensive onslaught with their respective home runs.
The Dodgers, known for their high-scoring offense averaging 5.3 runs per game, will look to capitalize on their firepower. However, their bullpen has been a cause for concern this season, ranking in the bottom 12 for runs allowed. The potential return of Max Muncy to the lineup after a hamstring injury two weeks ago adds another dimension to the Dodgers’ offense. Muncy leads the team with 18 home runs and has contributed 45 RBI to their cause.

Emmet Sheehan to start for the Dodgers.

Taking the mound for the Dodgers on Friday will be Emmet Sheehan, who will be making his first start of the season. Although Sheehan has only pitched six innings this year, he showcased his potential in his sole start, going 6.0 innings without allowing a hit, or earned run while recording two walks and three strikeouts.
This will be the second professional appearance for Sheehan in his career. Thus, all eyes will be on the mound as he takes the ball for the Dodgers in this game. Sheehan was picked for LA in the sixth round from Boston College and made ten starts in his first year. The pitcher is considered to be on rotation as of now.

Players to watch: Freddie Freeman 1B (GP 74, AB 294, R 60, H 95, 2B 25, 3B 1, HR 14, RBI 47, TB 164, BB 36, SO 56, SB 10, AVG 0.323, OBP 0.403, SLG 0.558, OPS 0.961, WAR 3.2, Mookie Betts RF (GP 71, AB 281, R 54, H 73, 2B 15, 3B 1, HR 17, RBI 43, TB 141, BB 41, SO 58, SB 5, AVG 0.26, OBP 0.359, SLG 0.502, OPS 0.861, WAR 2.6
