I’ll go with the Astros winning Game 2. The A’s offense struggled to get runs on the board with runners in scoring position during Monday’s loss. Manaea can be susceptible to home runs, so let’s say Correa continues his playoff long ball streak with another Tuesday and Houston takes Game 2.

The Houston Astros and Oakland Athletics will continue their American League Division Series at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Houston owns a 1-0 series lead after notching 16 hits in Game 1 (HOU 10, OAK 5). The AL West rivals are meeting in the postseason for the first time.
The Astros and A’s hit for a combined six home runs at Dodger Stadium on Monday. Houston’s Carlos Correa went deep twice in the win, adding to his recent hot streak in the playoffs. The shortstop now has three homers in three 2020 postseason games. Khris Davis, Sean Murphy and Matt Olson homered for the A’s. Alex Bregman hit a home run to go along with Correa’s two for Houston.
