Astros: 60-29 (27-18 H)
When: 8:10 PM ET, Friday, July 14, 2017
Where: Minute Maid Park, Houston, Texas
TV: FSN North, ROOT Southwest

The mighty Houston Astros will attempt to pursue their magical season as they begin the second half the season with a three-game series against the Minnesota Twins in an AL showdown with the opener set to be staged Friday night at Minute Maid Park in Houston. This will be the second and last series between the two rivals this season.

The Astros swept the Twins in their first three-game stint and will look to prevail over Minnesota for the seventh straight time dating back to August of last year. In fact, Houston has lost only once against the Twins in their last nine games. Houston clobbered Toronto 19-1 to win their 60th game of the season before the All-Star break.

Barring a disaster, the Astros should comfortably cruised into the postseason as they hold a 16.5-game lead over the Angels and Rangers in the AL West. The Twins are riding on a two-game losing streak and sit 2.5 games back of Cleveland in the AL Central. The Twins allowed Houston to score 40 runs in the three-game sweep in Minnesota back in late May.

RH Jose Berrios (8-2, 3.53 ERA) will look for back-to-back wins as he gets the call for the Twins while RH Charlie Morton (6-3, 3.82 ERA) gets the nod in the series’ opener for the Astros.

After struggling mightily in his rookie season in which he boasted a 3-7 record with an astronomical 8.02 ERA, Berrios has lived up to the lofty expectations this season after being called up from the minors on May 13. The 23-year old has produced seven quality starts in his 11 trips to the mound this year and has already 8 wins. He won his latest against Baltimore in a game he allowed 3 runs in six innings July 6. The Puerto Rican is 1-2 with an 8.03 ERA in 3-career starts against Houston.

Morton, who missed the entire month of June due to a lat strain, returned in style in his first start since the injury. The 33-year allowed just a run on four hits in six innings in a 12-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays a week ago up in Canada. Morton had gone 5-3 with a 4.06 ERA before hitting the disabled list on May 24. The New Jersey native faced the Twins only once in his career which was a no-decision in Houston’s 8-7 win back in 2015. He allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings in the contest.

Mybookie Sportsbook has the Astros favorites at 170-moneyline with the total sitting at 9.
