Come join the discussion. It’s the A’s coming to H-Town in a showdown for first place in the AL West

MLB: Houston Astros at Los Angeles Angels Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The tough Oakland A’s come into Houston hoping to sweep the World Champions, which would give them undisputed first place in the AL West. They have beaten the Astros in 5 of the last 7 games played between the two teams and come into Houston as one of the best teams in baseball over the last two months, and have won 7 of their last 10 games.

The Astros are fighting too, and have a five game winning streak going into this crucial series. An Astros sweep would be critical blow to the A’s hopes for a division title.
