Astros eye West title behind Verlander

The victory that will lift the Astros to their third consecutive American League West pennant will eventually come to fruition, and in all likelihood, it could manifest Sunday when Houston concludes its three-game weekend set against the visiting Los Angeles Angels.

With their Cy Young Award frontrunner, right-hander Justin Verlander, on the bump, the Astros should feel good about their chances of recording their 12th win in 14 games at home against the Angels. Despite their 8-4 victory Saturday, the Angels are just 7-18 over their last 25 road games.

The underlying concern for the Astros (101-54) -- in the pursuit of their ninth full-season division title in franchise history, the best record in the majors, and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs -- is what role veteran left-hander Wade Miley will play come the postseason.
