The Houston Astros are taking on the Pittsburgh Pirates in the second game of their three-game series. After a 7-1 victory, the Astros are looking to win back-to-back games for only the second time since early August.
The Pirates are still hanging around in the wild card race and are 5.5 games back with 12 games left, so they need to win as many games as possible if they want to have a chance at that wild card spot. The Astros will be playing the spoiler role against the Pirates.
The Astros are sending out Dallas Keuchel to the mound who has struggled this year with a 2-7 record. Keuchel actually earned his second win of the year when he pitched 5.1 innings of shutout ball to beat the Phillies.
