Houston Astros Win AL West
As the Major League Baseball regular season winds down, it's time to start looking ahead to the playoffs and our Houston Astros are primed to make another run after wrapping up their division race by beating the Los Angeles Angels 13-5.
That makes 3 AL West titles in a row as George Springer hit 3 home runs, a career-high, and Justin Verlander picked up his league-leading 20th win and the Astros upped their record to 102-54, just ahead of the New York Yankees for the best record in the league.
Last year, the Astros won the division but fell to the Boston Red Sox in a race to win the American League Championship Series.
Since we haven't been able to watch them on TV all season long (except for national broadcasts), at least we can finally watthemin the platoffs. Go Astros!
