Game Preview

HOUSTON — It was June 23 and the Texas Rangers held a 6 1/2-game lead in the American League West over the Houston Astros, a cushion that almost seemed insurmountable, given how the teams were performing at the time.

There was little reason to predict the frantic chase for the division title that would follow over the final three-plus months of the regular season. It was a pursuit that concluded with the Astros claiming the AL West crown on the final Sunday of the season.

Houston won nine of 13 games in the Lone Star Series, and after the Astros completed their rundown of the Rangers, there was this suspicion that their collective story wasn’t quite finished.
