Tigers vs Astros live stream: How to watch Saturday’s game, TV channel, live stream, more
FS1 will host Saturday’s match between the Detroit Tigers and Houston Astros with the first pitch at 4:05 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Minute Maid Park in Houston, TX and will air on FS1 in the Tigers market and FS1 in the Astros market. A few left-handers will be on the mound to start this game: Eduardo Rodriguez of the Tigers and Framber Valdez of the Astros.
The Tigers (8-17) enter Saturday with the worst record in the American League. Rodriguez hasn’t performed well in the first month after signing a big free agent contract in the offseason, allowing 12 earned runs in 21.2 innings. Detroit is 0-4 in his starts. But the Tigers offense didn’t provide much support either. They rank last in the Majors in home runs (11), slugging percentage (.310) and points per game (3.4) as roster staples such as star rookie Spencer Torkelson, Jonathan Schoop and Javier Baez have all been freezing lately.
The Astros (16-11) have won five straight, thanks in large part to a pitching staff that allowed just two earned runs in 31.2 innings. Valdez has thrown decently this season, but Houston is 0-4 in his last four starts as he has scored a combined eight points. Second baseman Jose Altuve had six hits in his 10 previous appearances, including a few home runs. Shortstop Jeremy Pena’s six HRs and 11 extra hits lead all MLB rookies.
