Monday’s 16-8 victory was just another piece of the continued history of the Houston Astros spanking the Minnesota Twins. The ’Stros have won the past four meetings between the two clubs while averaging 12 runs per game. The Astros will look to continue this streak but might be in for a difficult task against a young Twins ace Tuesday.

- Carlos Correa is 12-for-21 with 6 RBIs during his current 5-game hitting streak.
- The Astros are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games on the road with Mike Fiers starting.
- The Twins are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games at home with Jose Berrios starting.
Jose Berrios only has three starts in the majors this season but they have all been utter dominance. The young right-hander has allowed eight hits and four runs in 21.2 innings with opponents batting just .111. Berrios has increased the speed on his fastball but it’s his absolutely filthy curveball that is drawing stunned looks.
The Astros will send Mike Fiers to the bump after the righty was demoted to the bullpen for one day. Fiers, who gets this start in place of the injured Charlie Morton, has surrendered an MLB-high 18 home runs while sporting a dreadful 5.21 ERA. The six-year veteran has surrendered 11 of those 18 homers in his five road starts.
