Cristian Javier has had a solid start this year and he hopes to build on that when he takes the mound on Sunday to start for the Astros.  The right-hand pitcher’s first four starts went 3-0 with two earned runs, but his last four starts went 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA.  Javier is now 3-1 with a 3.27 ERA and 53 strikeouts this season.  In his career against Texas, Javier is 2-0 with a 3.26 ERA and 15 strikeouts.

Houston Astros vs Texas Rangers Predictions 5/23/2021

The Texas Rangers will look to maintain their momentum and sweep the Astros in the finale on Sunday.  The Rangers lost three consecutive times out of four games against the New York Yankees coming into this series.  The Rangers remain in fourth place at 21-27, 7 ½ games behind the AL West leader.

Offensively, the Rangers are in the middle-of-the-pack in MLB ranking 16th in hitting at .236 and 19th with the team’s 4.06 average runs per game.  Rookie right fielder Adolis Garcia has had an incredible start hitting .295 with 14 home runs in 24 games which is fourth in MLB.  Garcia’s 37 RBIs in 38 games rank 6th in the league.  Mike Foltynewicz hopes to turn around his slow start as he heads to the hill to start for the Rangers.  This will be the right-hander’s tenth start this season and is now 1-4 with a 5.18 ERA and 40 strikeouts.  Foltynewicz allowed seven hits and five runs in 3 ? innings against the Yankees on Tuesday.  Foltynewicz missed all of last season and it shows.  This will be his second career start against Houston.

  • Texas is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games when playing at home against Houston.

  • The total went OVER in 5 of Texas’ last 5 games against Houston.

  • The total went OVER in 6 of Texas’ last 9 games at home.

Houston Astros vs Texas Rangers. The MLB pick for this game goes to the Houston Astros.  The Rangers took the first two games but the Astros can avoid a sweep with a powerful lineup.  Young Javier can take on the Rangers while Foltynewicz will struggle against the strong and consistent Astros lineup. Taking the game is the Houston Astros.  Final Score Prediction is 5-4.
