ANALYSIS: Jose Urquidy is coming off a poor start against the Blue Jays but his two poor starts this season have really only been against the Blue Jays. Matt Shoemaker allowed nine runs and recorded just one out against the Royals in his last start, and now he gets to face the red-hot Astros. The Astros bullpen was awful last night and they ended up losing the game 12-8, but the last four runs were all unearned after a bad error by Kyle Tucker in the outfield. I would still take the Astros bullpen over the Twins bullpen even after last night and I think there is a bit of a public overreaction as well. The Twins are just 9-19 against teams with records over .500 this season, take the Astros.
