Houston Astros vs Oakland Athletics Predictions 4/4/2021

On the side of Oakland, the Athletics badly needed a win here after losing three games in a row. The Oakland Athletics gave up game 3 of the series versus the Houston Astros at 1-9, Saturday afternoon. Oakland had issues in their offense and the team needed to focus on that weakness to win the final match of this series. In Games 1 & 3, the Athletics scored only one run each game and that’s not even close enough to get the job done. Designated Hitter Mitch Moreland was accountable for the only run scored with an RBI on Saturday. Cole Irvin led the pitching staff with 7.0 holds, 4.00 ERA, 1 walk, and 2.0 strikeouts in 4.1 innings pitched.

Southpaw Sean Manaea will take on the pitcher’s rubber to start the final match of the series on Sunday. In Game 3, Manaea had a 4-3 record with a 4.50 ERA and made 11 starts last season while allowing 7 home runs in 54 innings pitched. The OVER is 4-0 in Oakland’s last 4 outings overall and 5-1 in its last 6 meetings against the A’s. The OVER is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings played between the two teams.

Houston Astros vs. Oakland Athletics. The MLB Pick for this match is Houston -110. Oakland’s Outfielder Ramon Laureano will not be playing on Sunday due to a wrist injury last Friday.
