    Verlander has been great but he's always subject to homeruns. If you haven't heard it yet, google his take on the balls being juiced this year. Roark isn't my favorite pitcher and i didn't like him with the reds and while he see's a HUGE ballpark upgrade, I still think he gets rocked. I like the over in this game because I don't believe in Roark and Verlander is just prone to give up at least 2 but can still give up more. I'm not going crazy here but I'm still going to throw a unit on it

    My Pick: Over 9

    Don't let the fact that Verlander being on the mound fool you into thinking that Astros are a lock in this one. As good as he is, I just don't trust Verlander on the road against the As.

      Also don't be a fool and bet against a guy that is the closest thing to a lock, start after start, in this league. Especially going up against Tanner Roark. 80%

    Fansided: The Houston Astros lose a home run derby to the Oakland A's 7-6

    In last night's slugfest between the Astros and the Athletics, each team knocked five home runs. Those ten homers turned out to be a record number hit in the Oakland Coliseum. But it was Matt Chapman's second dinger of the night in the bottom of the eighth that was the final blow.

    Chapman was one of four players that chalked up two home runs in last night's game. Teammate Matt Olson hit one in the fourth and sixth innings off of starter Aaron Sanchez. For the Astros, both Michael Brantley and Carlos Correa accounted for four of Houston's homers with two each, and Alex Bregman hit his 29th on the season for the fifth home run of the night.

    San Jose Mercury News: Oakland Athletics out-slug the mighty Houston Astros in win

    MLB

    OAKLAND -- Matt Chapman's two-home run game in San Francisco on Wednesday was quite the feat, and he knew it. To slice a baseball through the thick marine layers and Bay winds above Oracle Park is a challenge, but not an unfamiliar one for him and the A's.

    "I think this is the hardest place to hit in the big leagues," Chapman said on Wednesday. "And I think Oakland is second. If you're hitting home runs in the Bay Area, you have to get them."

    With rumors awhirl about the cross-bay's pitcher-friendly confines, does Chapman think the Giants bring in the fences?
