It’s been a rough road trip for the Astros, currently 3-5 against the Angels, Diamondbacks and A’s. They are 6-8 overall, 4.5 games behind the A’s for the AL West lead, and only a half game ahead of the Rangers in second place.

Two young, promising hurlers duel for mound supremacy today, Cristian Javier for the Astros and Jesus Lazardo for the A’s.
