World Champion Astros Are Struggling A Bit

August 13, 2018

While it is still likely that the defending World Champion, Houston Astros will still be the American League “two seed,” they are making things a little bit too interesting in the A.L. West race.

Houston’s lead is down to just two and a half games over very surprising Oakland (A’s) for the division lead.

Surprising Seattle (Mariners) just won all 4 games at Houston, joining the way below .500, Texas Rangers as teams to sweep the ‘Stros in the last two “at Houston” weekend series. Texas won all three there two weeks ago.

Houston, which is 11 and a half games behind (85-35) Boston (Red Sox) for the A.L. one seed, still leads their probable division series opponent Cleveland (Indians) by 6 games in the “2” seed battle, which will determine home field advantage if and again, likely, when the two teams meet.

 

An incredible difference to this point as Houston is (41-18) on the road actually a better percentage than (43-20) Boston.

However, they are just (32-28) at home.
