Game Thread 154. September 18, 2019, 7:10 CDT. Rangers vs Astros.

Astros are closing in on the AL best record by closing out the Rangers. What could be better? Maybe another Gerrit Cole pitching gem? Join the discussion.

MLB: Texas Rangers at Houston Astros Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

After Verlander’s six-inning shutout last night leading to a 4-1 win, Gerrit Cole has to do something special to keep his Cy Young hopes alive. Pitching for the Rangers is Kolby Allard, 22-year-old rookie and former first round draft pick.

The Astros are currently tied with the Yankees for best record in the AL, and need any combination of three wins or three Oakland A’s losses to clinch their third straight AL West title.
