KEY GAME INFORMATION
HOUSTON: 2017: 101-61, first place, won World Series.
MANAGER: A.J. Hinch (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Joe Smith, RHP Hector Rondon.
SUBTRACTIONS: DH Carlos Beltran, RHP Luke Gregerson, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Mike Fiers, RHP Michael Feliz, INF Colin Moran.
OUTLOOK: With almost everyone back from last year's championship team, the Astros fully expect to contend for another title. They have a right to be confident with Altuve leading a potent lineup that includes Springer, the World Series MVP, and Correa, a young All-Star shortstop coming off his best season. Their rotation is one of the best in baseball, with Cy Young Award winners Keuchel and Verlander leading the group and new acquisition Cole and young star McCullers following that 1-2 punch. Barring debilitating injuries, the Astros should win the AL West and have an excellent chance to repeat as World Series champs.
LA ANGELS: 2017: 80-82, second place.
MANAGER: Mike Scioscia (19th season).
ADDITIONS: RHP-DH Shohei Ohtani, RHP Jim Johnson, 3B Zack Cozart, 2B Ian Kinsler, C Rene Rivera, OF Chris Young.
SUBTRACTIONS: 3B Yunel Escobar, 1B C.J. Cron, 2B Brandon Phillips, RHP Ricky Nolasco, RHP Jesse Chavez, RHP Yusmeiro Petit.
OUTLOOK: The Angels made several apparently savvy offseason moves and are in position to end the big-budget franchise's eight-year stretch without a playoff victory. They've assembled veterans Upton, Kinsler and Cozart around Trout and Pujols to create a potentially dangerous lineup, and they should be one of baseball's best defensive teams with Gold Glove winners Simmons and Maldonado leading the way. The rotation is fairly deep if not spectacular, and the bullpen has a chance to be good. Yet the most compelling aspect of these Angels is Ohtani, who chose Orange County for his dramatic move stateside as he attempts to become the majors' first significant two-way player in decades. Early returns from spring training aren't promising, but the Angels are committed to investing the playing time and patience required for Ohtani's rare talent to shine.
PREVIEW
Angels brace for Astros, Verlander
 

Justin Verlander needed to be especially sharp for the Houston Astros to beat the Los Angeles Angels twice in their playoff run last September.

Both times he was matched against fellow right-hander Garrett Richards, and each time he came through for his new team, shutting out the Angels on one hit deep into both victories to help smother their postseason hopes.

Verlander and Richards are scheduled to go head-to-head again Wednesday night in the finale of a three-game series at Angel Stadium.

The Astros (27-17) lead the Angels (25-17) by one game for first place in the AL West.

Los Angeles starting pitchers have dominated the series.

Angels left-hander Andrew Heaney allowed one run in eight innings in a 2-1 victory Monday night, and Los Angeles rookie Jaime Barria gave up one run over seven innings Tuesday, but the Astros came from behind against the bullpen and evened the series with a 5-3 victory.

The other bright spot for the Angels has been left fielder Justin Upton, who hit his seventh home run of the month Tuesday night for an early 2-0 lead.

"Right now, when (Upton) gets a pitch to hit, he's putting a good swing on it," Angels manager Mike Scioscia told reporters after the game.

A night after Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun had a key assist in the ninth inning of the one-run win, Houston right fielder Josh Reddick threw out a runner at third and home.

"When he's given a chance to throw a guy out, he's usually on the money," Houston manager A.J. Hinch told reporters after the game.

Verlander (4-2, 1.21 ERA) enters this matchup with a hotter hand than Richards, but overdue for some offensive support.

Verlander has made three starts in May and allowed a total of two runs over 20 innings, lowering his league-leading ERA, but he's 0-2 for the month and the Astros dropped his other start as well.

He blanked the New York Yankees for eight innings May 1, but six pitchers combined to shut out the Astros 4-0. He then allowed one earned run over six innings in each of his past two starts, but was supported by a total of one run.

Verlander wasn't as sharp against Los Angeles in a 5-2 win in Houston on April 25, but was still very good, allowing two earned runs in seven innings. He improved to 3-0 against the Angels with a 0.82 ERA since he was traded to Houston on Aug. 31 of last season.

Verlander and Richards were the starting pitchers on Sept. 12 at Angel Stadium. Verlander threw eight shutout innings in the 1-0 win that dropped Los Angeles two games back of the final wild card spot.

They went head-to-head again 10 days later in Houston and Verlander threw seven shutout innings in the 3-0 victory.

Before his trade from the Detroit Tigers, Verlander wasn't nearly as dominant against the Angels, owning a 6-8 record and 3.79 ERA in 17 starts.

Even with the strong start at Angel Stadium in September, Verlander is 3-5 at Angel Stadium with a 5.15 ERA.

Verlander has faced 11 current players for Angels and they're batting a combined .128. Los Angeles center fielder Mike Trout is among those who have struggled against Verlander, coming in 2-for-23 in his career, but both hits were home runs.

Richards (4-1, 4.08) is 5-4 with a 3.28 ERA in his career against Houston.

The Angels have scored at least four runs in seven of his eight starts.
