GoodFellas Astros @ Reds Preview Tuesday, May 26th, 2009 + OFFER

Houston Astros at Cincinnati Reds, 7:10pm ET

  The Houston Astros are 24-6 when Oswalt (1-2, 4.47 ERA) pitches against the Reds and 12-2 when he starts in Cincinnati. He carries a lifetime 23-1 record versus the Reds with a 2.35 ERA. Roy is 8-0 in 10 starts against them since losing at Cincinnati on April 28, 2006. The only two games he didn't win in that span came this season, though Oswalt was outstanding as he gave up one run over 13 innings. Oswalt comes into Tuesday having allowed at least three runs in four straight starts, failing to last seven innings in any of them. Micha Owings (3-5, 4.70) will try to help Cincinnati win a season-best three in a row for the fourth time and end a personal two-game skid. Owings was shelled for five runs in three innings Thursday night in a 12-5 home loss to Philadelphia. His only start against Houston came May 24, 2007, when he recorded his first career complete game in his seventh major league start - a 9-1 victory for Arizona. The UNDER is 11-3 the L/14 times these teams have met & the UNDER is 20-7 in Oswalt's L/27 road starts. The Reds bullpen their L/3 games has a ERA of 3.81 & WHIP of 1.23, while the Astros bully has a ERA of 5.86 & WHIP of 1.70.
