The division rival Houston Astros and Texas Rangers are set to renew hostilities on Wednesday when they meet at Globe Life Park.

Justin Verlander will be the starting pitcher for the Astros on this day. Right hander Verlander is 14-8 this season with a 3.38 ERA.

Verlander’s opponent in this one will be Nick Martinez. The Rangers right hander has a 5.42 ERA to go along with a 3-7 record this season.

Verlander improved to 6-0 in his last seven starts on Friday after allowing just one hit and striking out six in seven innings of a 3-0 win versus the Los Angeles Angels. The 2011 AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner’s last loss came at the expense of the Rangers, against whom he surrendered three homers and five runs total in six innings of a 10-4 setback while pitching with Detroit on Aug. 15. Verlander has struggled in his career against Elvis Andrus (.308), although former Astro Carlos Gomez (.118) and Joey Gallo (.167) have been held in check.

Martinez fell to 0-4 with a 6.80 ERA in his last 10 appearances (six starts, four relief) after allowing four runs for the third straight outing in Friday’s 4-1 loss at Oakland. The 27-year-old owns an 0-2 record with a 4.58 ERA in four games versus the Astros this season, including a loss despite yielding two runs in five innings of a 5-1 setback on Aug. 31. Josh Reddick (8-for-18), Carlos Correa (5-for-9) and Alex Bregman (4-for-9) have gotten under the skin of Martinez, although the hurler has kept Altuve (5-for-23) in check.

Oddsmakers opened the Astros as -185-moneyline favorites versus the Rangers, while the game’s total opened at 10.

Justin Verlander has been nothing short of sensational since being acquired by the Houston Astros, posting a 4-0 mark with a rail-thin 0.64 ERA in four starts with his new club. Verlander aims to continue his stellar form as the Astros bid for the top mark in the American League on Wednesday afternoon in the third contest of a four-game series versus the host Texas Rangers.

Brian McCann and Cameron Maybin each homered and drove in three runs as Houston posted its 10th win in 12 outings with a 14-3 rout on Tuesday. The offensive uprising was accomplished without the services of Jose Altuve (AL-best 199 hits and .348 batting average), who is considered day-to-day as he nurses a left forearm contusion sustained after he was hit by a pitch in the series opener. The AL West-champion Astros (97-60) have ascended to within one game of Cleveland (98-59) for the top mark in the league, although the Indians own the tiebreaker for home-field advantage throughout the AL playoffs if they finish with the same record. Texas, which sends right-hander Nick Martinez to the mound, officially was eliminated from postseason contention following its fifth consecutive loss on Tuesday.

The Rangers were a 14-3 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Astros. That made winners of bettors who got Houston at -143 on the moneyline, while the total score (17) was good news for OVER bettors.

Houston was a 14-3 winner in its last match on the road against the Rangers. They won as -143 favorites, while the total score of 17 made winners of OVER bettors.
