The Astros lost a tough one against the Nationals in their series opener on Monday, but Tuesday presents a new opportunity for Houston to shock the world and get back into this series. With one or two less errors, the Astros could be looking for their second consecutive win and fifth win since the All-Star break.
Unfortunately the story isn't so glamorous. And Houston is sending Jordan Lyles (2-8, 5.95 ERA) to the hill on Tuesday to face Ross Detwiler (6-4, 3.02 ERA) in the pitching duel.
For the Nationals, playing against the Stros is a chance for them to strengthen their lead in the NL East division. But for Houston, playing against Washington is almost close to unfair.
