Winners of seven in a row, the Houston Astros travel back to their home state to play the Texas Rangers.
Not even an unseasonably chilly Minnesota could cool down the ‘Stros, who swept away the Twins following a weekend sweep of Baltimore.
The lineup is just so long and so dangerous, especially when Dallas Keuchel is pitching. Keuchel makes his 11th start of the season on Friday.
Houston fans were anxious to see how their ace looked following a 10-day stint on the Disabled List to rest an ailing back. Keuchel looked just fine in six innings against the Orioles that got him to 8-0.
He allowed four hits and needed just 86 pitches to dispatch Baltimore.
So while the Rangers have to deal with a rested Keuchel, they also have their own challenge awaiting that annihilative Astros lineup.
It comes in the form of Yu Darvish, who looks back in top form. Darvish lost his last time out but threw his eighth quality start in 11 opportunities. He gave up five hits and three runs to a revitalized Toronto team in six innings of work.
Darvish got his ERA under 3.00 in his first start of May and kept it there for the entire month. It sits at 2.97 ahead of his biggest challenge, to date. He has yet to face the Astros this season.

Free Houston Astros vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction: the Astros win.
It’s been too easy of a prediction to make this season. Houston has won over 70 percent of its games this season and nine out of 10 with Keuchel on the mound. Darvish is great but the Houston lineups just wears pitchers down.
