Matchup for G82 - Pirates @ Astros

so the Astros enter the second half of the season 40-41, tied with the Reds, and 3.5 back of the division-leading Cardinals. One good thing is that the Brewers are a game back of the Cardinals, and they're playing each other - so someone has to lose. There is ground to be made up this week...

Brian Moehler

Moehler has faced the Pirates twice already this season - once on April 13, when he got hurt enough for the Astros to pull the plug on him for three weeks, and on May 29, when he threw his complete game.

Last three starts:

6/20 @MIN64/33:111/897/66
6/25 vKC55/13:210/892/56
7/1 @SD64/18:45/9115/74

I mentioned before Moehler's last start that, since that CG vs the Pirates, Moehler hadn't thrown more than 100 pitches in a start. And then he went out and threw 115 pitches - only six innings worth, but still. And also of note, in starts following games that Moehler throws 100+ pitches, he has allowed at least 4ER.

Let's do the splits:
vs Righties: 47x120, .392/.430/.708, 17K:6BB
vs Lefties: 36x153, .235/.306/.405, 28K:15BB
