I mean, what else do you really need to know? The story of this season has been, and continues to be, the Astros inability to beat the Rangers.

Texas jumped on Mike Fiers early for three runs in the first, aided by a wild pitch. Jose Altuve answered back in the top of the third with a three run homer - his first since Cinco de Mayo - that scored Jason Castro and George Springer. Unfortunately, Rougned Odor answered the answer with a solo shot in the bottom of the third.

The two Texas teams entered the bottom of the ninth tied 5-5, when Odor struck again -- this time with a game winning, walk off double off of Ken Giles that scored Adrian Beltre.

The Astros will try to break their maddening Rangers futility for the eighth straight time this season tomorrow night at 7:05 PM.
