The fans at Minute Maid Park will be treated to a interleague game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Houston Astros when they take their seats on Thursday.

The Diamondbacks will trot Patrick Corbin out to the mound in this one. Left hander Corbin has a 9-11 record and a 4.59 ERA this season.

Corbin’s opponent in this one will be Mike Fiers. The Astros right hander has a 4.43 ERA to go along with a 7-7 record this season.

Corbin bounced back from two disastrous starts by registering a stellar one on Saturday, scattering five hits and striking out eight over 6 2/3 scoreless innings in a 6-2 triumph versus the Chicago Cubs. The 28-year-old has struggled away from the desert, however, posting a 2-8 record and 6.79 ERA on the road as opposed to a 7-3 mark and 2.87 ERA at Chase Field. Corbin also has sputtered in small sample sizes versus the Astros, with George Springer (3-for-3, homer, four RBIs) leading the way against him.

Fiers has answered a brilliant stretch during which he went 6-2 by posting an 0-3 record and 8.41 ERA over his last four starts. The 32-year-old’s woes continued on Saturday as he yielded a season high-tying six runs for the second time in three trips to the mound in an 8-3 setback at Texas. Fiers has surrendered six homers in three starts in August after allowing just four in the previous two months combined.

Oddsmakers currently have the Astros listed as 124-moneyline favorites versus the Diamondbacks, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

Houston Astros sparkplug Jose Altuve has recorded multi-hit performances in three of his last four contests and six in his last 10 heading into the finale of a four-game interleague series against the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday afternoon. The two-time American League batting champion is hitting a major league-best .364 for the Astros, who have won three of their last four overall and 11 of 13 interleague contests.

Yuli Gurriel recorded his second straight multi-hit effort in Wednesday’s 9-5 victory over the Diamondbacks to improve to 23-for-64 in his last 15 contests. While Houston holds a 12 1/2-game lead over the Los Angeles Angels in the AL West, Arizona fell for the eighth time in 11 contests to see its lead over Milwaukee dip to four games in the race for the second wild card in the National League. Paul Goldschmidt launched a two-run blast on Wednesday to extend his hitting streak to six games, during which he is 7-for-20 with three homers, five RBIs and five runs scored. Former Astro J.D. Martinez also went deep on Wednesday and looks to continue his success versus Thursday starter Mike Fiers, against whom he is 6-for-11 with two blasts in his career.

The Astros were a 9-5 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Diamondbacks. That made winners of bettors who got Houston at -163 on the moneyline, while the total score (14) was good news for OVER bettors.

Arizona lost its last outing, a 9-5 result against the Astros on August 16. Bettors who backed the Astros at -163 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (14) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
