The Astros host the Rangers for game 3 of their 3 game series. For the Astros, Zack Greinke will take the mound with a 2.68 era and a whip of 0.94. Greinke has 35 strike outs on the season with a record of 2-0. Greinke's exit veloicty is above-average averaging 86.1 mph, so I wouldn't expect much regression on his era. The Astros are batting .250 as a team with a woba of .322.

For the Rangers, Lance Lynn will take the mound posting a 1.93 era with a whip of 0.92. Lynn has 56 strike outs on the season with a record of 4-1. Lynn has a slightly high exit velocity averaging 88.5 mph but his strike out percentage makes me feel confident he won't see much regression. The Rangers have the worst team batting average in the league at .213 and a poor woba at .275.

I like the Astros in this one, they have an advantage at batting and I think Greinke can get the job done for them in this matchup.
