The Houston Astros are in their typical April mode after losing their second series of the year to the Minnesota Twins. They now travel to Pittsburgh for a three game series that can hopefully get both the bats and arms firing on all cylinders. This is the Houston Astros vs. Pittsburgh Pirates series preview.

Kyle Tucker, Yordan Alvarez, José Abreu, and Jeremy Peña have essentially been carrying the offense so far this season. However, Chas McCormick has decided to enter the chat and hopefully has solidified himself as the every day center fielder. Astros fans got an update the other day saying that the team is hoping Michael Brantley will be back in the lineup the first week of May. The lineup isn’t necessarily reeling at the moment, but getting a bat like Brantley’s in the every day lineup is something we are all looking forward to.

The Pittsburgh Pirates just lost Oneil Cruz for a period of time after a rough play at the plate Sunday afternoon. And let’s just say that the Pirates aren’t really the best team in the league… The Astros have a prime opportunity to take a series, and gain some confidence heading into the later part of April.

The pitching matchups appear to be looking like this:

Monday, game one: Framber Valdez vs. Roansy Contreras

Tuesday, game two: Cristian Javier vs. Mitch Keller

Wednesday, game three: José Urquidy vs. Rich Hill

The games are all fairly early, so the boys can ease their way back into some night games without it feeling like it’s midnight. The Astros should win this series quite handily, but as we all know, it’s April and the Astros aren’t the Astros just yet. Houston Astros vs. Pittsburgh Pirates series preview shows that we should be happy come Wednesday afternoon.
