ANALYSIS: Jeremy Pena is back in the lineup, but Yordan Alvarez is still out. I don’t think that will matter tonight as Christian Javier is pitching. He is 3-2 with a 1.95 ERA at home this season and he has 5.1 scoreless innings against the Angels this season. He is also coming off seven hitless innings in New York where he struck out 13. Michael Lorenzen is much worse on the road at 2-3 with a 6.14 ERA and he allowed 4 ER in 3.1 IP in his first matchup against the Astros this season. The Astros were 13-6 against the Angels last season and 7-3 at home. The Angels actually won the first series between these teams in Houston but that was way back in April. I like the Astros at home here.
