MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Houston Astros Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

It was a welcome explosion of hitting at home last night, especially by one Yuli Gurriel, whose two homers were the main punch in the Astros 11-3 win over the Angels. But the A’s won too, in walk off fashion in the ninth, so the Astros’ magic number only went down one, to 6 games to clinch the Division. Looks like the Stros are just gonna have to keep on winning, but is there a better way to win a division?

Tonight the Ace, Justin Verlander, very hot of late, RHP (16-9, 2.67 ERA), goes against Jaime Barria, RHP (10-9, 3.61 ERA).

Here is the lineup for YOUR Houston Astros.
