The Baltimore Orioles, who had just swept a four-game series against a Texas team, were licking their chops at the prospect of repeating the feat as another Lone Star State dweller march through town. Well, the Houston Astros aren’t exactly the Texas Rangers as the Orioles found in their opener against the mighty Astros.

The Astros imposed their will on yet another shaky performance from an Oriole starter and will look to win their eighth straight against Baltimore when the two clubs resume hostilities Saturday night with Game two scheduled to take place at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore. The Astros own Baltimore as they have lost only twice in their last 15 meetings.

Although the Orioles made a valiant effort to mount a late comeback in the ninth inning, the game was basically over by the time Oriole starter Ubaldo Jimenez left the game after giving up six runs in just 5 1/3 innings. The Orioles scored 5 runs in the last inning but the damage was done way before with the Astros finally prevailing 8-7 on Friday.

RH Collin McHugh (13-10, 4.34 ERA 2016) will make his season debut in Game 2 of the series for the Astros while RH Chris Tillman (1-5, 7.20 ERA) looks to follow up on impressive last start for the Orioles.

McHugh will make his first start of the season for the Astros after being on the 60-Day disabled list with an elbow impingement or “dead arm”. The 30-year old, who won 13 games last season for the team, made 5 rehab starts - four in Double-A Corpus Christi where he kept a 3.60 ERA in 15 innings. In his lone start with Triple-A Fresno, McHugh was limited to an inning in which he allowed 3 runs. McHugh is 1-0 with a 6.18 ERA in 5-career starts against Baltimore.

Tillman finally stopped the hemorrhage by tossing his first quality start in over a month. The 29-year old, who is still looking for his first win since he returned from the disabled list on May 7, allowed a run on just two hits in six innings in a no-decision against Texas on Monday. Tillman had yielded 4 runs or more in four of his last five starts prior to his last outing. The California native is 2-3 with a 3.89 ERA in six-career starts against the Astros.

Mybookie Sportsbook has the Astros favorites at 140-moneyline with the total sitting at 11.
