Pitching Matchup

Tony Gonsolin makes his 11th start of the year and is coming off the worst start of his career where he allowed 7 runs in a loss to the Giants. Things have been a bit up and down for the 2022 All-Star of late, but, if he stays consistent with how his season has been (3 runs, 1 run, 3 runs, 0 runs, 7 runs over last 5 starts), Sunday should produce a dominant performance for the Cat Man.

He’s making his first career start against the Astros.

Hunter Brown is also facing the Dodgers for the first time in his career. The 24-year-old his debut last year and has been pressed into an innings eater role for Houston while three key starting pitchers are on the injured list. He too is coming off a rough start where he allowed 7 runs to the Mets in a loss.
