The Houston Astros are riding high entering June. The Astros have a 38-16 record overall and a record of 22-7 record in the month of May.

In many ways, it was a historic run for the Astros. The Astros are for the first team in franchise history entering the month of June with baseball’s best record.

It’s also the best record in baseball entering June since the 2001 season.

The Astros also set the record for the most runs scored in a single series in franchise history.

And the Astros have crushed their opponents during their seven-game winning streak.

And the Astros are on pace to have over 110 wins.

Not bad for just getting out of the month of May. I think this Astros team might be pretty good. Oh and not to forget, the Astros are 11 games ahead of the next team in the American League West.

The Astros are 12 games ahead of the Rangers, who they play this weekend.
