Game Thread 124, Aug. 16th, 2019, 9:07 CDT. Astros vs. A’s

It’s been a bit of a rough patch for the Astros of late. They had to play three games in Chicago in the course of 18 hours. Their scheduled starter in one of them, Gerrit Cole, couldn’t go, and then the Stros had to fly to Oakland. They are on a mini three game losing streak, losing the last two in Chicago and a bomb fest in Oakland last night. Both teams crushed four home runs each, but the A’s had one more runner on base with theirs, so they won 7-6.

Justin Verlander, (15-4, 2.82 ERA) still front-runner for AL Cy Young Award, hopes to end the madness. His opponent is Tanner Roark (7-8, 4.16 ERA)
