 The Houston Astros and the Oakland Athletics will meet on the field at O.co Coliseum on Wednesday in a battle of division rivals.

The Astros will give the ball to starter Collin McHugh in this one. Right hander McHugh is 11-10 this season with a 4.66 ERA.

McHugh extended his unbeaten streak to six starts Friday with a victory at Seattle in which he allowed just two hits over seven scoreless innings. The 29-year-old native of Illinois has not lost since Aug. 13, when his slide reached four outings after yielding three runs in 5 1/3 frames at Toronto. McHugh improved to 5-1 in eight career starts against Oakland — and 1-0 in three turns this year — on Aug. 30 as he scattered four hits over six scoreless innings.

McHugh’s opponent in this one will be Daniel Mengden. The Athletics right hander has a 5.68 ERA to go along with a 2-7 record this season.

Mengden is coming off the best outing of his brief time in the major leagues, a victory at Kansas City on Thursday in which he scattered three hits over a career-high seven innings. The triumph halted the 23-year-old native of Houston’s seven-start winless streak during which he suffered four losses and yielded four or more runs on five occasions. Mengden escaped with a no-decision at Houston on July 8 after surrendering six runs in 4 2/3 frames and lost to the Astros at home 12 days later, when he gave up three runs over five innings.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Astros listed as 142-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.5.

The Athletics were a 2-1 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Astros. That made winners of bettors who got Houston at -128 on the moneyline, while the total score (3) was good news for UNDER bettors.

In their last action, Houston was a 2-1 winner on the road against the Athletics. Bettors on Houston at -128 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (3) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
