This Wednesday the Sinaloan pitcher José Urquidy, belonging to the Houston Astros, will be in charge of climbing the hill to face the Oakland Athletics. In the first instance the position would be occupied by Zack Greinke , but it was decided that he will not see action due to ailments in his right arm.
Through a press conference, Dusty Baker, manager of the Astros, reported that Greinke suffered from ailments in the right limb, so they did not want to risk it, thinking about the next games.
In this context, Baker was sincere and said that the team decided to give the ball to the Mexican Urquidy who has been making an outstanding participation as a starter in this postseason.

Greinke's numbers have been unsatisfactory for the Houston Astros, as he hasn't gone past 6 innings and a 5.79 ERA in his last four starts. Greinke's last appearance was a week ago, when he faced the Minnesota Twins in game one of the wild cards.
According to information from Major League Baseball (MLB), José Urquidy had numbers of 1-1 in wins and losses in five outings, with a 2.73 ERA, 17 strikeouts and eight walks.
During the playoff phase, the Mazatlan started game two against Minnesota and allowed one run in four innings. On the other hand, in Game 4 against the Washington Nationals, he pitched five scoreless innings.

It should be noted that the Houston Astros are up in the series with an aggregate score of 2-0. History calls José Urquidy, because the Mexican will have the task of leading his team to the final for the fight for the American League pennant, everything will depend on how his exit on the diamond develops.
In addition to his experience in the major leagues, Urquidy will have the confidence and backing of men of weight and quality, such as Carlos Correa, George Springer and José Altuve.
Everything indicates that the Oakland Athletics will put all their hopes on the left-hander Jesús Luzardo. Even though the rookie has an effective turnaround and curveball, the key will be in the two strike count.
