Oakland Athletics vs Houston Astros. MLB’s pick for the 1st game in the doubleheader is the Houston Astros. Oakland opened this series strong to humiliate the Astros in their own home field. Zack Greinke will be the savior for the Astros as he is playing solid baseball this season. He is playing better than Montas and is dominating the A’s whenever he faces them. Oakland’s bullpen is great but their batters are hitting the ball below the average mark, which Greinke will use to his advantage. Oakland is 4-9 in their last 13 games against the Astros in their home field. Houston wins his match predicted at 7-6
