In the AL West, it’s the Houston Astros and then there’s everyone else. The Astros have a .709 winning percentage, while no one else is above .500.

They won their eighth in a row after pasting the Rangers 7-1 in the series opener on Friday night. They have outscored their opponents a mind-boggling 69-29 through the streak.

And even though they are on the road for this series, they have actually posted a better road record at 19-6 than at home, 20-10.

Meanwhile it wasn’t that long ago that the Rangers were red-hot in raising their record to 23-20 a couple of weeks ago. But they are just 3-9 since then as they’ve been outscored 77-53 through the streak.

On Saturday Lance McCullers Jr. (6-1, 2.48 ERA) gets the start for Houston. He’s been lights out in his last six starts allowing just four runs in 36.1 innings of work. He’d pitched 22 scoreless innings before allowing three runs (two earned) in an 8-4 win over Baltimore in his last start.

Andrew Cashner (2-4, 2.92 ERA) got just his second win of the season allowing one run over seven innings in a 3-1 win over Toronto last time out. He’s allowed two earned runs or less in seven of nine starts, but has struggled to pick up the wins.

That kind of pitching luck is bound to change eventually. Why not against a sizzling Astros team on a hot June night?

Mybookie Sportsbook has the Astros favorites at 190-moneyline with the total sitting at 9½.

MLB Runline Odds at BetOnline the Astros were favored by -1½ (-105)
