The Houston Astros continue to cement their first-place credentials. With a two-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves earlier this week, Houston moved to 23–11 on the young season – their best 34-game start in franchise history.
There’s an old saying in baseball: You can’t win a division in April.
The Astros would like to remind everyone that it’s not April anymore. Fresh off a series win over second-place Anaheim, Houston is looking more and more like the team to beat in the AL West – if not the entire league.
The rest of the American League is officially on notice. The Houston Astros, owners of the best record in the Junior Circuit at 19-10, throttled the Texas Rangers three games to one to cap off a raucous home stand at Minute Maid Park.
For the third time in history, Houston plays host to the Super Bowl. On February 5, 2017, the Super Bowl returns to the Lone Star State for its 51st game, and the changes made to the city in preparation for the big event are unparalleled.
