Arizona Diamondbacks vs Houston Astros
HOUSTON -- Even at this advanced stage of the season, with the Astros having long ago cemented their reputation as a dominant road team, their success away from Minute Maid Park remains stunning.
On Wednesday, riding the coattails of third baseman Alex Bregman and his historic performance, the Astros capped another winning road trip with a 5-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers that completed a three-game series sweep. Combined with a series win in Boston last weekend, Houston finished 5-1 on its penultimate road trip of the regular-season schedule.
The Astros will open a nine-game homestand, their final one of the season, Friday against the Arizona Diamondbacks with left-hander Dallas Keuchel (11-10, 3.59 ERA) on the mound.Read More...
