MLB | Houston 3 @ Chi. White Sox 4 | 08/17 | 12:10 AM UTC

Houston -125

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Luis Robert is out of the lineup for the White Sox again while Jose Altuve and Jeremy Pena are both back in for the Astros. Rafael Montero has allowed runs in three straight outings as the Astros set up man but he should be unavailable tonight. Dylan Cease has allowed 1 ER or fewer in 14 straight starts and while I don’t think he gets rocked tonight, I do think that streak will end. Liam Hendriks is most likely unavailable after pitching three of the last four nights. I like the Astros on the road.
