It looks like I didn't jinx them when I wrote about the Houston Astros yesterday because they managed to pick up their 5th straight win beating the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 yesterday.

A Jose Altuve home run and a  Marwin Gonzales triple that scored a run in the 8th inning gave the 'stros the win.

So, they are now in 2nd place but, they're also 10 games out of 1st, behind the Texas Rangers, who also picked up a win, 6-4 over the Cincinnati Reds.
