Preview

The Astros won’t be making the playoffs so game 162 will mark the final game of the 2016 season in Houston. It’s a disappointment for sure. But we enjoy baseball for one game.

That game will include one last look at Richmond, TX native Brady Rodgers. Rodgers has struggled in his major league debut this season, allowing 10 earned runs over 4 1.3 innings. But Rodgers was stellar in the minor leagues -- going 12-4 with 2.86 ERA in 22 starts.

Rodgers will make his first major league start on Sunday. Jhoulys Chacin will make his 17th start this season for the Angels. He is 3-6 with 5.40 ERA in his previous starts.
