Game 4:  Sunday, May 17th  –  2:10 ET

The finale of this four game set will see the veteran Mark Buehrle put his surprise 5-2 record on the line.  After two very worrying outings against Cleveland and Tampa Bay, Buehrle has settled down in his last two outings to resemble his 2014 form.  Age may be catching up with Buehrle to some extent, though, as he hasn’t been grinding deep into games thus far.

Houston’s final offering will be right-hander Colin McHugh, who enters with a 4-1 record and 3.50 ERA.  McHugh is coming off a moderately rocky outing in his last start, but was consistent in his prior outings and should be a solid bet to reach the seventh inning.  The most common pitch you’ll see from McHugh is a mid-80’s slider which he compliments with a 90 MPH fastball.
