Astros hoping to revive offense against D-backs

Houston Astros manager Dusty Baker was quick to acknowledge the rarity of his team's victory on Thursday, a triumph in which an early two-run home run proved sufficient in defeating the Texas Rangers.

Houston (25-25) claimed a series victory over the Rangers with a 2-1 win in the rubber match of a three-game series. The Astros extended their lead over the Seattle Mariners to three games in the chase for second place in the American League West and the automatic postseason berth that comes with it. They did so despite scoring just six runs in the three-game series, with a two-run, second-inning blast from Kyle Tucker muting the stench of a shutout loss Wednesday.

Next up for the Astros is a three-game interleague series against the struggling Arizona Diamondbacks that starts Friday at Minute Maid Park. Houston will need its offense to perk up to keep Seattle at bay, with Houston and the Mariners set to square off early next week in a crucial series in Seattle.
