Astros vs. Tigers MLB Pick – August 19th

The Houston Astros managed yesterday day to acquire their feet against the Athletics in Oakland. Zack Greinke brought his elite arm out and placed to avoid a sweep. Greinke revealed the Astros traded for him, as he placed in seven innings of work on a performance.
He allowed only 1-run to give his team a 4-1 win over Oakland. It had been their sole win at the three-game series on the weekend. Believe it or not, the Astros have been about a five-game losing streak. They also had declines against the White Sox leading into the weekend, therefore it has not been smooth sailing to the Astros.
When it comes to the AL West, this will not affect the Astros. That is under management, as they have a 7.5-game lead from the division. The As may have gotten inside 6.5 games with a win on Sunday, but they camera short on that regard. In any case, it was a good weekend to Oakland in their pursuit to get a wildcard. Theyre 1.5 games back of the Rays, therefore readily within striking distance.
The Astros can find those losses back quickly in Detroit this weekend. They are at Comerica Park to get a series against the 37-84 Tigers. The Tigers and the Orioles are Detroit with 37 the only teams in the majors without 40 wins and Baltimore at 39.
When the Astros focus and play their game, this should not be a difficult series for them. Former Blue Jay, Edwin Jackson, who had been a wreck in Toronto, would make his third start using the Tigers at 2019. Things are a lot different since hes been here, although edwin was a Tiger back in 2009 if the team was a competitor. Wade Miley will counter tops in this place to the Astros. Head below for our free Astros vs. Tigers pick.

The Blue Jays had enough of Edwin Jackson and released him after posting a 11.12 ERA in eight appearances, five of which were starts. They have been desperate for arms in their rotation and Jackson was a option to throw in there. They could not continue to see him put up that kind of work on the mound Though losses and wins dont mean this year. It made sense to launch him, Together with the Jays needing to find a number of those younger guys involved with the minors also.
He had been introduced, and another team came calling for his or her services. And thus far, it has been a wonderful beginning for Jacksons second stint with the Tigers. He has a 2.38 ERA in 11.1 innings of work in Detroit. But, his general ERA this year stands at a horrendous 8.62 using a 1.84 WHIP and .401 OBA.
Id be amazed if he can continue to keep this. TheStros did not have a great showing at the plate against the As this past weekend and theyre likely going to need to take some frustration out to the Tigers. The teams that Edwin held down were both the Royals and Mariners, night, therefore he has a stiffer challenge on Monday.
Wade Miley was a huge acquisition for the Astros. They lost Charlie Morton and plan B has worked out well. Miley goes to Comerica Park with a 3.11 ERA and also 1.18 WHIP. He gets lost within this spinning, failing to find much recognition on a team loaded with hurlers.
This Tigers roster has been in a position to strike him, though. They are hitting .302 with a .359 OBP and 22 runs scored in 106 at-bats. Miley has not been as sharp on the street. He possesses a 3.97 ERA and also 1.32 WHIP in the street as opposed to a 2.02 ERA and 0.99 WHIP. Having said all that, I still think the Astros win this match. The costs about theStros are becoming absurd, however on the runline. The OVER in a cost that is much greater appears like pick in Detroit.
