MLB | Houston 2 @ Chi. White Sox 4 | 08/16 | 12:10 AM UTC

Houston -135

LOSS

ANALYSIS: White Sox starter Johnny Cueto has been living dangerously, The 36-year-old has given up 42 hits over his last five starts, but he's been successful at stranding runners. That might be tougher tonight against the AL-best Astros. Houston is averaging 7 runs during its four-game win streak, albeit against lesser competition. Houston starter Jose Urquidy faces a White Sox lineup that ranks 23rd in OPS versus right-handed pitching. Look for Houston to improve to 21-8 in the past 29 meetings.
