With 72 games to go in the regular season, the Astros sit atop the AL West, 7.5 games ahead of Oakland and a full 9.0 better than Texas.
It wasn’t long ago that Houston lost eight out of ten but it rebounded to win seven out of eight immediately before the break.
The ‘Stros have to play Oakland 11 more times before the season is out and Carlos Correa still aren’t yet back. Both should be back “soon,” according to reports.
Still, the Astros have better than a 99 percent chance to win the division, according to FanGraphs. AJ Hinch hasn’t named a starting pitcher for this game but it isn’t likely to be Justin Verlander, who threw a clean first inning in the All-Star Game.
Joey Gallo hit a home run for the American League in the All-Star Game. Hunter Pence was there, too, but he had to cheer from the dugout, still recovering from a strained groin that will keep him out right up until the end of this month.
Texas did beat Minnesota on Sunday in its final game before the break but it stumbled into the 3-day layoff, losing six of its last eight games.
Mike Minor didn’t get into the All-Star Game but he won’t start this game, anyway. Lance Lynn has 11 wins and an ERA+ of about 130 so far. He trails only Minor for the team lead in Wins Above Replacement.
In his only start against the Astros, which came in Houston, Lynn went seven innings and lost. He gave up six hits and a walk, while striking out eight.
