The Houston Astros and the Philadelphia Phillies will both be trying to pick up a win on Monday when they battle at Citizens Bank Park in an interleague contest.

Brad Peacock will be the starting pitcher for the Astros on this day. Right hander Peacock is 8-1 this season with a 2.49 ERA.

It’ll be Vince Velasquez toeing the rubber for the Phillies in this contest. Right hander Velasquez is 2-5 with a 5.14 ERA so far this season.

Peacock continued his breakout season with his fifth consecutive win Tuesday against Seattle, holding the Mariners to one run and three hits over seven innings while striking out nine. The 29-year-old has posted a 1.82 ERA with 35 strikeouts during his five-start winning streak. Peacock is 1-1 with a 6.75 ERA in two career starts against the Phillies.

Velasquez was excellent at Miami on Tuesday, holding the Marlins to two runs – one earned – over six innings but settled for a no-decision. It was the 25-year-old’s first start since May 30 after spending six weeks on the disabled list with a strained flexor in his right elbow. Velasquez has struggled to a 6.26 ERA in five home starts this season after going 4-3 with a 2.88 ERA at home a year ago.

Oddsmakers currently have the Astros listed as 139-moneyline favorites versus the Phillies, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Houston Astros own the best road record in baseball, and they have a chance to add a few more victories away from home when they visit the Philadelphia Phillies for a three-game interleague series that begins Monday. Houston is 35-12 on the road after beginning a nine-game trip by winning two of three at Baltimore over the weekend.

The Phillies, meanwhile, have the worst record in the majors and are 18-26 at home, although they took two of three from National League Central-leading Milwaukee after posting a 6-3 win on Sunday. Philadelphia has captured five of its last seven overall contests. The Astros are just 5-4 since the All-Star break but possess the best record in the American League by a wide margin and lead the AL West by 17 games. Philadelphia’s Vince Velasquez, a second-round pick of the Astros in the 2010 draft, will face his former team for the first time in the series opener.

In their last action, Philadelphia was a 6-3 winner on the road against the Brewers. Bettors on Philadelphia at -113 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (9) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.

In their last action, Houston was a 9-7 loser on the road against the Orioles. Bettors on Baltimore at 115 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (16) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
