Oh what a fun one that was! Down one run in the ninth after a brilliant duel on the mound, the Rangers saw themselves to a two-out rally and magical win over the Astros in Minute Maid Park.
And though this one wouldn’t have been terrible for the Rangers to lose, the loss impacted Houston significantly, as the Astros now find themselves 4.5 games back in the AL Wild Card Race with plenty of room to makeup.
Texas may be going for the sweep but don’t think the Astros will give it up to them that easy.
It’s been a rough two games against the Rangers for Houston, with each being decided by just one run.
Game two may be the more frustrating of the two, however, as Houston had Texas down to their final out yet couldn’t find a way to lock the game up.
One good thing for the Astros in the midst of the loss was Jose Altuve’s resurgence, as he went 3-for-4 with a home run.
On Wednesday the Astros will send Joe Musgrove to the hill as he looks for his third win of the season. He’s faced Texas twice this season, with an appearance on August 7th and one on September 3rd.
The Rangers can’t find a way to do any wrong right now. Down to their final out they still found a way to win a game that really doesn’t mean much to them at this point.
Though they haven’t put up their huge offensive numbers as of late, Adrian Beltre still unloaded a home run and they are primed to strike at any moment.
Derek Holland will be making somewhat of a surprise start on Wednesday as he looks to build back to form before a 2016 postseason that should see the Rangers be favorites for a World Series berth.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
Texas will be looking for the sweep in this one and are just having fun at this point in the season.
They look primed to clinch home field advantage in the playoffs and are likely getting fine-tuned for a deep run.
Houston, meanwhile, needs a strong push and some help from a few teams above them as they look to remain in the Wild Card picture. Expect Altuve to back his stats from last night as he emerges from a small slump.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Astros ML and game total over 8
The Rangers have taken the first two games of this series but the Astros should be able to navigate a limited Derek Holland en route to a critical win as they look to push towards the playoffs in a last attempt.
They’re elimination number is down to six but they still have a fighting chance.
