The fans at Marlins Park will be treated to a game between the Houston Astros and the Miami Marlins when they take their seats on Tuesday.

The Astros will pin their hopes on the pitching of left hander Dallas Keuchel in this game. Keuchel has a 6-0 record and a 1.69 ERA this season.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Tom Koehler who starts for the Marlins. Right hander Koehler is 1-1 with a 5.60 ERA so far this season.

Keuchel is tied for the MLB lead in innings pitched (58 2/3) and his ERA was third overall among qualified hurlers. Thursday’s win over the Yankees was his shortest outing of the year but he tied a season high with nine strikeouts and walked only one. The 2015 American League Cy Young Award winner allowed two unearned runs in seven frames in his only prior start against Miami.

Koehler finished six innings only twice in his first seven starts and has fallen shy of that mark three straight times, including a no-decision against St. Louis on Wednesday in which he gave up four runs in 5 1/3 frames. He threw a season-high 99 pitches in that outing while allowing zero home runs for the first time in 2017. The 30-year-old, who won his only prior start against the Astros, will be careful when facing Evan Gattis (5-for-11 against Koehler), Altuve (2-for-3) and Marwin Gonzalez (2-for-3).

Oddsmakers currently have the Astros listed as 176-moneyline favorites versus the Marlins, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

Dallas Keuchel will try to become baseball’s first seven-game winner when he leads the visiting Houston Astros into the second of three games against the Miami Marlins on Tuesday. Keuchel improved to 6-0 with six dominant innings at Yankee Stadium his last time out, part of the Astros’ current 12-3 run.

Their surge continued with a 7-2 victory in the opener of the interleague series Monday night as Yuli Gurriel hit Houston’s third grand slam in May, a franchise record for one month. Jose Altuve also went deep and drove in three runs for the Astros (27-12), who own the best record in baseball, are 13-6 on the road and have won each of their three interleague games. The Marlins are headed in the other direction and have not won consecutive games since April 22-23. Monday’s loss dropped Miami to 1-6 on its current homestand and 4-15 since it opened the year 10-8.

Miami was a 7-2 loser in its last match on the road against the Astros. They lost as -106 favorites, while the total score of 9 made winners of OVER bettors.

Last time out for Houston, they were a 7-2 winner as they battled the Marlins on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Astros at -104 were rewarded, while the 9 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
