Scott Feldman will make his seventh start of the season for the Houston Astros on Tuesday and will go up against Tyler Skaggs and the Los Angeles Angels.
Big righty Scott Feldman ended up with a no decision in his start against the Texas Rangers in a game the Astros ended up winning 5-4. Feldman pitched five innings in that outing and gave up four runs on a season-high 10 hits while striking out three and walking one. He still has a solid 2.63 ERA on the season, but he only has 18 strikeouts in 37.2 innings of work.
Erick Aybar has 10 hits in 22 at-bats against Feldman with two doubles, two triples and three RBI. Howie Kendrick has done well against Feldman, too, by going 9-for-20 with a double, a home run and three RBI.
Tyler Skaggs did not pitch well against the Tampa Bay Rays last week, but he ended up with a no decision instead of a loss because the Angels came back and won 6-5. Skaggs went six innings in that game and gave up five runs on eight hits while striking out five and walking one. He is still 3-1 on the season and has a 4.53 ERA.
First baseman Jesus Guzman has just one hit against Skaggs in eight at-bats, but that one hit was a home run and he has four RBI against the lefty.
