The Oakland Athletics and the Houston Astros will both be trying to pick up a win on Wednesday when they battle at Minute Maid Park.

The Athletics will give the ball to starter Jesse Hahn in this one. Right hander Hahn is 3-5 this season with a 4.52 ERA.

The Astros will counter Hahn with David Paulino. Right hander Paulino has a 5.04 ERA to go along with a 2-0 record this season.

Hahn is looking to redeem himself after allowing two homers and a career-high 10 runs in just two innings of Thursday’s 12-9 loss to Houston. “I really don’t have an answer for it,” the 27-year-old said. “I just didn’t have good stuff. I think it was one of those starts where no matter what I did, no matter how much I battled I couldn’t find anything.” Hahn, who owns a 1-4 mark with a 9.28 ERA in five career starts versus the Astros, also took the loss against the club on April 30 after permitting four runs in six frames.

Hahn’s troubles in his last outing resulted in an early 10-run lead for Paulino, who won his second straight start after allowing three runs on seven hits in 5 1/3 innings. “I thought he did a good job of competing and using all of his pitches, even though he had a 10-run lead,” said Astros manager A.J. Hinch, who also credited the development of the 23-year-old Dominican’s breaking ball and changeup. Paulino kept the ball in the park for the first time after surrendering one homer in each of his previous four starts.

Oddsmakers currently have the Astros listed as 175-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Oakland Athletics have turned the tables on a season of disappointment away from home, outscoring their foes by a 24-9 margin en route to winning the first four contests of their six-game road trip. The cellar-dwelling Athletics aim to continue their ascent against the first-place Houston Astros on Wednesday when the American League West rivals play the second contest of their three-game series at Minute Maid Park.

Ryon Healy launched his first career grand slam to power Oakland to a 6-4 victory on Tuesday, giving him five hits on the road trip after going 1-for-14 with six strikeouts in a four-game series versus Houston last week. Bruce Maxwell has provided a jolt after the team designated former All-Star catcher Stephen Vogt for assignment, going 10-for-18 with four runs scored in his last five contests. While Oakland is just 13-25 on the road this season, Houston’s home mark has fallen to 23-17 after losing 11 of its last 20 games at Minute Maid Park. Jose Altuve has hit safely in six straight and 10 of his last 11 contests, but he’s just 2-for-9 in his career versus Wednesday starter Jesse Hahn.

Houston lost its last outing, a 6-4 result against the Athletics on June 27. Bettors who backed the Athletics at 138 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (10) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Oakland was a 6-4 winner on the road against the Astros. Bettors on Oakland at 138 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (10) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
