The Houston Astros and the Los Angeles Angels will both be trying to pick up a win on Saturday when they battle at Angel Stadium.

The Astros will give the ball to starter Brad Peacock in this one. Right hander Peacock is 10-2 this season with a 3.21 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Tyler Skaggs who starts for the Angels. Left hander Skaggs is 1-4 with a 3.96 ERA so far this season.

Peacock lost to Oakland in his last turn, allowing three runs – one earned – and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings, after winning his previous seven decisions. The 29-year-old has only worked 10 total frames over his last two turns but has recorded 17 strikeouts during that stretch. Peacock is 3-2 with a 5.15 ERA in nine career appearances (six starts) against the Angels, including a loss on June 9 in which he yielded four runs, seven hits and four walks in three innings.

Skaggs has lost back-to-back starts and is 0-3 over his last four turns. The 26-year-old fell to Texas in his last start, when he gave up five runs – four earned – and four hits in 5 1/3 innings. Skaggs is 2-2 with a 2.49 ERA in four career starts against the Astros and has struggled to retire Altuve (4-for-9).

Oddsmakers currently have the Astros listed as 110-moneyline favorites versus the Angels, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

All-Star Jose Altuve could miss his second straight game when the Houston Astros visit the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday. Altuve missed the opener of the three-game series due to a neck injury and manager A.J. Hinch termed his status as day-to-day.

Altuve was hurt while swinging the bat on Thursday, and both the American League batting leader and Hinch feel he could return during the series. “He’s fine. He’s still having a little bit of symptoms with his neck,” Hinch told reporters. “He’s not going to play until we feel like he is not going to irritate it anymore. Given the travel we had, I didn’t really expect him to play (Friday) coming into the ballpark. So it’s no surprise to me it’s day-to-day.” The Astros posted a 2-1 victory in the opener as Alex Bregman recorded his second straight three-hit performance to improve to 14-for-29 during his seven-game hitting streak. Los Angeles has lost four of its last five games and sits 1 1/2 games behind Minnesota for the AL’s second wild-card spot.

Los Angeles was a 2-1 loser in its last match on the road against the Astros. They lost as -115 favorites, while the total score of 3 made winners of UNDER bettors.

In their last action, Houston was a 2-1 winner on the road against the Angels. Bettors on Houston at 105 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (3) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
