Pitching: LHP Scott Kazmir (7-11, 3.10 ERA) vs. RHP Johnny Cueto (11-13, 3.44 ERA)
Battle of the mid-season reinforcements. The Astros acquired Kazmir from the A's and the Royals traded for Cueto from the Reds within days of each other, back in July. The Royals are hoping to even the series after the Astros jumped on Yordano Ventura and coasted to a win in Game 1.
