The game here will be one which should be slanted towards the Astros rather easily. The Rangers have struggled on the year so far and have not really been that impressive, but putting Kihei on the mound here is going to make it even harder for the Rangers to win as teh Texas team will struggle to keep Houston in check. Final Score Prediction, Houston Astros win 5-2.
