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

The Astros will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Lance McCullers Jr. in this game. McCullers Jr. has a 3-1 record and a 2.98 ERA this season.

McCullers Jr.’s opponent in this one will be Jose Urena. The Marlins right hander has a 1.98 ERA to go along with a 1-1 record this season.

McCullers has allowed just one unearned run and six hits in 13 innings over his past two starts. The 23-year-old pitched six innings of four-hit, shutout ball while beating the New York Yankees in his last start after giving up two hits and the unearned run in a seven-inning no-decision against the Los Angeles Angels on May 6. McCullers has struggled on the road in his young career by going 4-9 with a 4.67 ERA in 20 away starts.

Urena has pitched well while splitting two starts as he gave up just two runs and seven hits over 12 innings. The 25-year-old turned in one of the best outings of his career on May 7 in a victory over the New York Mets when he pitched six innings of one-hit, shutout ball. Urena is just 2-10 with a 4.69 ERA in 28 career appearances (13 starts) in his home ballpark.

Oddsmakers currently have the Astros listed as 168-moneyline favorites versus the Marlins, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

The red-hot Houston Astros own the best record in the majors and they look for their 14th victory in the past 17 games when they visit the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. Houston outscored the Marlins 19-4 while winning the first two contests of the three-game set and stand 5-1 as they enter the finale of a seven-game road trip.

Center fielder Jake Marisnick hit two homers for the first time in his career and had four RBIs while catcher Brian McCann also drove in four as the Astros (28-12) established a season best for runs scored while cruising to a 12-2 victory on Tuesday. Houston shortstop Carlos Correa has recorded five two-hit outings in the past seven games and is 11-for-25 with seven walks during the stretch. The Marlins are spiraling in the wrong direction with a 3-12 record in May and are a porous 1-7 on a nine-game homestand. Miami right fielder Giancarlo Stanton has gone seven contests without a homer after hitting four in a three-game stretch from May 6-8.
