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

The Astros will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Mike Fiers in this game. Fiers has a 7-4 record and a 3.68 ERA this season.

Fiers’s opponent in this one will be Aaron Nola. The Phillies right hander has a 3.38 ERA to go along with a 7-6 record this season.

Fiers has answered a three-game winless skid by improving to 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA in his last two starts. The 32-year-old capped his second straight seven-inning performance by allowing one run on six hits while striking out nine in Friday’s 8-7 victory at Baltimore. Fiers owns an 8-1 mark in his last 13 road starts dating back to last season.

Nola improved to 4-1 with a 1.70 ERA in his last six outings on Friday after permitting one run on five hits in seven innings of a 6-1 triumph over Milwaukee. The 24-year-old fanned nine in that contest for the third time in five trips to the mound and has struck out 50 in his last 42 1/3 innings pitched. “Nola was outstanding,” Phillies manager Pete Mackanin told reporters. “He’s been working on that changeup all year and it’s really one of his better pitches. He used all of his pitches, he spotted his fastball in and out and changed speeds extremely well.”

Oddsmakers currently have the Astros listed as 119-moneyline favorites versus the Phillies, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

While Jose Altuve’s career-high 17-game hitting streak is receiving plenty of attention, teammate Marwin Gonzalez is enjoying an impressive run in his own right with hits in eight straight and 23 of his last 26 contests. Altuve and Gonzalez look to add to their individual streaks on Wednesday as the American League-best Houston Astros aim to remain perfect in interleague play heading into the finale of a three-game series versus the host Philadelphia Phillies.

Gonzalez highlighted his fourth multi-hit performance in five contests with an RBI single in Tuesday’s 5-0 triumph for the high-octane Astros, who have amassed 18 runs and 25 hits in the series and 150 runs in 19 games this month. Altuve, who is a staggering 39-for-79 this month, followed up a pair of four-hit performances with just one double on Tuesday to actually drop his majors-best batting average one point to .364. Both stars will get their first look at Aaron Nola in the series finale, with the right-hander enjoying an impressive roll despite the majors-worst Phillies’ considerable troubles. Cameron Rupp had a pair of doubles to hit safely for the eighth time in 10 games, but he’ll get his first look at veteran right-hander Mike Fiers.

Philadelphia lost its last outing, a 5-0 result against the Astros on July 25. Bettors who backed the Astros at -148 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

Last time out for Houston, they were a 5-0 winner as they battled the Phillies on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Astros at -148 were rewarded, while the 5 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
