Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees Analysis

Houston Astros come into this matchup boasting an offensive force that has been an unstoppable force all season. Their batting average of 0.250 shows their consistency in making solid contact with the ball, scoring 528 runs and hitting 141 homers; their on-base percentage (0.321) and slugging percentage (0.416) demonstrate their proficiency at getting on base and providing meaningful hits.

Jose Urquidy has led the Houston Astros on the mound with his win-loss record of 2-2 and an ERA of 5.2. While not an elite pitcher, Urquidy has shown his ability to keep opponents at bay while giving the team a chance at victory. Urquidy has managed to limit opposing hitters from reaching base quickly with his 1.55 WHIP and 23 strikeouts in 27.2 innings pitched – demonstrating his ability to generate crucial outs when needed.

Despite their struggles at times, New York Yankees boasts a lineup with power and patience. While their batting average of 0.230 may not compare favorably to Astros’ 0.34 average, their ability to hit for power while drawing walks make up for it. Their 474 runs scored and 153 homers prove this point; their on-base percentage (0.302) shows their patience at bat, drawing walks to put additional pressure on opposing pitchers, while their slugging percentage of 0.405 speaks for itself in terms of extra-base hits that bring in runs.

Carlos Rodon is the starting pitcher for the Yankees. While his performance this season has been somewhat inconsistent, with a win/loss record of 1-4 and an ERA of 6.29, these statistics should not be taken out of context: his starts have faced tough opponents with high-scoring games as his WHIP of 1.48 prevented runners from staying off base; which led to high-scoring games as a result. In 24.1 innings pitched, Rodon allowed 20 hits and 17 earned runs while striking out 20 batters, showing his potential and providing growth opportunities.
