The Astros will turn to one of their best arms to salvage a series in Denver when Houston returns from a day off after being swept in a Memorial Day doubleheader. Lucas Harrell's last start was good enough to beat the reigning Cy Young winner, L.A.'s Clayton Kershaw, in a one-run, five-hit performance through eight innings.
Houston's fate has been tied to their hitting - when they've been out-hit, they're playing .500 or less (through the last ten games, they've been out-hit in all of them, finishing 5-5). The Astros are 12-6 when outhitting their opponents, and 6-21 when they're out-hit.
