Houston Astros at Pittsburgh Pirates

Houston’s seven-game win streak over the Pittsburgh Pirates ended on Saturday with a 12-6 loss at PNC Park.  “We kept batting back and it just got too deep,” Astros manager Brad Mills said.  “They were able to get to their bullpen and the last three guys in their bullpen are really tough.”  The pitching staff allowed the worst team in the league to set season highs in runs and hits (17).  Sunday’s game will be the third game of a six-game road trip for the team, with the Astros having a combined 11-3 mark against the opponents they will face.  The Astros 20-15 record versus the NL Central is the second-best within the division trailing only Cincinnati (26-15).  Despite having a 13-17 daytime record this season, bettors have picked up a slight profit (+140) and 12.5 units over the last three years.
