The Astros were successful in their last game against Texas Rangers. From the pitching side, Houston witnessed Jose Urquidy go deep for his team and Tony Kemp done a good job from the plate.

He now has 100 RBIs and walks to go with 110 runs this year, which makes him the third Astro ever to hit the century mark in those categories during a single season.

But he did have to grind in his last start against the Angels, giving up 4 runs across 5 innings. Fiers makes the start as the winner of his last 12 consecutive decisions and hasnt been handed an L since May 1st. He was roughed up the last time he faced the Astros, surrendering 5 runs across 6 innings of work in that one, including 4 home runs. While he will have starts where his command is elusive and he walks a bit of a tight rope, you cant argue that Fiers is the ace of this staff and has turned his career around in Oakland.
