The MLB Comp play is on the St. Louis Cardinals at 8:15 eastern.

#MLB Free Pick from Mike Lundin
Play: Houston Astros
The red hot Houston Astros will open a three-game series with the Chicago White Sox Friday night. The series marks the opener of a 10-game homestand that will close the unofficial first half of the season for the Astros, and I think they'll kick it off with an easy victory.
Houston has won 10 of its past 11 games and sends Mike Fiers (5-3, 4.41) to the mound. He has two no-decisions despite a minuscule 1.32 ERA in two career starts against the White Sox, and Melky Cabrera is hitless in six at bats against Fiers who is 4-2 with a 3.23 ERA in eight starts at Minute Maid Park this season.
The White Sox turn to Miguel Gonzalez (1-3, 5.17 ERA) who is 1-3 with a 3.60 ERA in five career starts against the Astros, but 0-2 with a 9.39 ERA while logging just 15 1/3 innings over his last three starts overall. Gonzalez allowed eight runs on a career-high 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings of a 10-8 loss to Toronto on Saturday.
White Sox are 3-12 in their last 15 road games vs. a right-handed starter. Astros are 12-2 in their last 14 home games and 6-1 in Fiers' last seven home starts.

Blue Jays: Marcus Stroman 7.03 ERA with 1.72 WHIP last seven overall team starts. With the visiting team 3-0 in Tomlin’s career team starts in this series, we recommend a 1* play on Cleveland.
