Berríos hasn’t been as strong on the road. he is 4-1 with a 4.17 ERA in six starts this season. That includes his most recent road start, giving up five runs on nine hits over five innings in Kansas City.
It is the second time the Astros have faced Berríos this season. He allowed four earned runs on five hits over five innings on May 30.
