Houston Astros Form


Houston arrived in Kansas City in solid form having won five of their previous seven games.

That momentum has stalled with back-to-back losses at the hands of the Royals and they have now lost three straight games.

They do have a strong Game 3 record though, and they have also fared well on the road against American League Central opposition.

Houston have won 17 of their last 25 Game 3s and they are 9-5 when visiting AL Central teams this season.

Kansas City Royals Form


Kansas City came into this four-game series with Houston on the back of a four-game losing skid.

That run included being swept by St Louis and it extended a miserable run of home form over the past couple of weeks.

The Royals went 1-5 in front of the home fans prior to the start of this series with the Astros, but they have stopped the rot.

Kansas City edged out Houston 7-6 on Monday and they ran out 3-1 winners on Tuesday.
