The Astros come into tonight’s game on a four game winning streak, and having won seven out of their last ten games. They are 12 game behind the Yankees for first place in the AL, and 12 game behind the Dodgers for the best record in the Major Leagues.

Justin Verlander and Charlie Morton match up tonight in a contest with implications for the Cy Young Award. The Astros will see the return of Aledmys Diaz from IL. Myles Straw returns to AAA Round Rock.
