The Astros have won seven of their last eight entering this road series against the Detroit Tigers with Justin Verlander making his return to Comerica Park.
This will be Verlander’s first time back since being acquired by the Astros in August of 2017. Verlander spent the previous 13 seasons with Detroit as he takes the mound tonight against his former club.
Alex Bregman continues his assault on baseballs with Yuli Gurriel riding a six game hitting streak to compliment the offense. As of late, Tyler White has been making his presence known by hitting clutch RBI doubles and triples to add another element to the line-up.
The Astros will play three games against the Tigers before heading home to open up their last homestand of the season.
First pitch is slated for 5:10pm CT.
