Los Angeles lost Game 1 of a series against the Houston Astros at 2-8 on Thursday.

Alex Cobb recorded 6 hits, four earned runs, three bases on balls, and four strikeouts in 2.2 innings pitched.

Left-handed Andrew Heaney will be climbing to the bump to start the second installment of a series against the Astros on Friday. The southpaw thrower is 1-1 with a 5.65 ERA in his first 14.1 innings pitched this season. Heaney has difficulty in 2021 to date and granting so many walks have become an issue for the left-hander starter as he awarded an average of one walk per inning.

Los Angeles Angels vs Houston Astros Predictions 4/23/2021

The Houston Astros took Game 1 of a series against the Los Angeles Angels to a score of 8-2 on Thursday. The Astros hit Alex Cobb early in the match and recorded six runs after three innings to take an early lead. Houston managed to snap a three-game losing streak in that victory. The Houston Astros are 8-10 on the year while the Halos stayed one game above .500 at 9-8. Mike Trout left Thursday’s duel earlier as he was hit by a pitch and that would be a lesson for the Astros in coming into this contest.

The Houston Astros are planning to send right-hander Zack Greinke to the pitcher’s rubber to start Game 2 of a series versus the Angels on Friday. The righty thrower is 2-1 with a 2.81 ERA in his first 25.2 innings pitched this season with Houston. Greinke has been the missing piece of a puzzle that will be the key needed by the Stros to get back in the competition this season. However, the right-handed starter just reduces his number of strikeouts in the outing that is a bit of concern. Righty Greinke posted 16 strikeouts in 25.2 innings pitched.

Los Angeles Angels vs. Houston Astros. The MLB Pick for this game is Houston -124. The Astros are still the team to beat here but both starters can play solid in this match, though. Heaney managed to post two runs in pitching for 5.1 innings with six strikeouts versus the Twins. On Greinke’s side, the righty starter made three quality starts in four outings while pitching eight scoreless innings against Seattle on Saturday. The prediction, Houston will win at 5-2.
