PITCHING MATCHUP: Astros RH Mike Fiers (5-3, 3.80 ERA) vs. Blue Jays RH Marcus Stroman (8-5, 3.42)
Astros update: The Astros are off to the best start for any team since the 2005 White Sox, who like the Astros started 57-27. Entering play Wednesday, Astros pitchers led the majors in strikeouts (861, 45 more than the Dodgers), and Astros hitters had the fewest strikeouts (566, 16 fewer than the Indians). The only team in major league history to pull off that double by season’s end was the 1911 New York Giants. Thursday will be McCullers’ first start at Rogers Centre.

Fiers needed 105 pitches to get through four innings last time out but he struck out seven and kept the New York Yankees off the scoreboard to help his team cruise to an 8-1 win. Opponents have managed 16 hits in 30 innings over Fiers’ last five outings and he has gotten through seven consecutive starts without giving up a home run. The Florida native was knocked around for five runs (four earned) in 4 2/3 innings in his only prior start at the Rogers Centre.
Stroman let up two runs in five frames prior to his abrupt departure Monday at Yankee Stadium, the 13th time in 17 starts in which he has allowed three earned runs or fewer. The Duke product has a 2.87 ERA in nine home starts and defeated the Astros at the Rogers Centre last August with 6 1/3 solid innings. That came just two starts after Stroman struck out a career-high 13 while allowing a run and three hits in seven innings at Houston.
