1) Throwback uniforms
Astros are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the 1986 NL West Division championship team on Saturday. The Astros will have Alan Ashby, Kevin Bass, Jose Cruz, Glenn Davis, Phil Garner, Nolan, and Mike Scott on hand for the event.
As part of the celebrated, the Astros will be wearing throwback jersey for Saturday's game. Feast your eyes on these beauties.
2. The road less traveled
The Astros are 5 1/2 games behind the Rangers in the AL West. @hdcjr outlined the fact that the Astros have a tough road ahead when comes to the final 60-plus games this season. The Astros will face five playoff team overall including the Rangers.
That said of the team referenced the Astros are 19-15 against thus far this season if we take out the 2-9 against the Rangers and Houston hasn't played the Cubs yet-- just I'm fully aware is cherrypicking.
3. McCullers putting in work during his down time
Dallas Keuchel was great last night, pitching a complete game shutout of the Rangers. But Lance McCullers had the important questions after the game.
