The Arizona Diamondbacks will host the visiting Houston Astros at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona on Wednesday, August 5, 2020, 9:10 P.M, ET. Game 2 is on the way as with a clash between 2 interleague teams. The Houston Astros drew 1st blood in the series getting a commanding 8-2 lead against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The D’Backs are in dire need of a win here if they hope to salvage their season. The Diamondbacks are currently in the 14th place of the National League with a record of 3-8, and are dead last in the NL West Division.

The Diamondbacks lost 5 of their 6 games, and scored a total of 4 runs in their last 3 games. Arizona’s main problem here is on how they can create offense. Madison Bumgarner was known for being an excellent pitcher when he played for the San Francisco Giants, but this has not been the case with his new team in Arizona. Bumgarner was acquired in the offseason by the D’backs, and has struggled in his 3 starts of the season. He allowed 8 runs and 2 walks in just 4.1 innings against the Astros in their last game. Ketel Marte leads the D’backs with 12 hits and 2 runs batted in. Not far behind Christian Walker and Starling Marte gave the team a combination of 20 hits and 8 RBIs. Robbie Ray will start for the Diamondbacks in the next game. Ray is playing terrible this season recording at 0-2 with an earned run average of 8.64. Ray is 1-1 with a 4.32 ERA and 30 strikeouts in his career against Houston.

Houston Astros vs Arizona Diamondbacks Predictions 8/5/2020

Houston won 3 of their last 4 games, after a 3-3 start in the season. They may not be that dominant, but they are getting things done for now, getting just above the .500 mark. The Astros have a good offense, and will help them big time as they are facing one of the weakest teams in the league. George Springer got 3 RBIs in their last game, while Carlos Correa had 3 hits and 2 runs and an RBI. The Houston Astros are in the 5th spot in the American League with a 6-4 record, and are 2nd in the AL West Division. Lance McCullers Jr. will be on the mound for the Astros in game 2. He is recording at 1-0 with a 5.40 ERA and 10 strikeouts for the season. McCullers Jr. is 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against Arizona.

Houston Astros vs Arizona Diamondbacks. MLB’s pick for the game is the Houston Astros -1.5. The Astros have McCullen to bounce back here after a slow start for the season. Ray is in a slump and it will be hard to get back from that. The Astros are the better team here, and Arizona is not showing any signs that they can pull off an upset here. Houston has defeated Arizona  13 times in their last 20 games. Arizona is terrible in the underdog role. The D’backs only won 3 games in 17 as the underdogs. The Astros will win to a predicted score of 7-5.
