Preview

Well. We can stick a fork in the Astros season. Houston would basically have to win their final seven games to even have a chance to make the playoffs. Which they won't. Houston’s longest winning streak in 2016 was seven back in June (June 18-25) with a fully healthy team. The Astros are far from that now.

Joe Musgrove starts for the Astros on Sunday. He is 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA in his last four games. He allowed just one run on two hits over 5 1/3 innings in his last outing on Sept. 20 against the A's.

He faces the Angels for the first time in his career.

RHP Daniel Wright makes his sixth major league start on Sunday. He is 0-2 with a 7.36 ERA over his last three starts.
