The Houston Astros have sights on the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees in the playoff chase. In a season that saw the high soaring Astros take a nose dive in September to not only lose the division lead, but they also lost the Wild-Card 2 slot as well. With some improved play, the Astros currently have control of the Wild-Card 1 for the moment with a one game lead. The Astros may have been cold in September, but they are red-hot now with the Yankees and Rangers struggling to get wins all of a sudden. If the Astros win today, they can put themselves in a very favorable position if everything falls into place today.
