In the interim and starting against the Rangers, the Astros will keep pushing forward with another postseason berth and World Series championship in their sights and as their goals.

The Houston Astros and Texas Rangers meet Friday in Major League Baseball action at Globe Life Park in Arlington. Obviously, we preach stuff that will hopefully continue to give us long-term success. It's an accepted part of the business of professional sports, but while we have come to accept these potential pitfalls, there are sometimes situations where one team gets hammered harder than the rest, especially when talking about injuries. "It is important. I was hoping we would set the tone for the second half with a good win".

Chavez's ERA in his own ballpark this season is 4.26 and opponents are batting.271 against him at Globe Life Park in 2019. Chavez is 3-2 with a 3.63 ERA and 72 strikeouts in his career against the Astros. Chavez has posted a 7.20 ERA against the Astros over three outings this season.

Cole has allowed three earned runs in his last 26 innings and has nine or more strikeouts in four of his last six starts. After going on a serious charge that got them into second in the West and within 5 ½ games of the Astros, they flatlined a little, falling back to third and 9 games out.

Houston Astros All-Star infielder Alex Bregman, who left Thursday's game after a ground ball bounced up and hit him on the chin, is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Texas Rangers. This is the first game between these teams in 2019.

Bregman underwent further evaluation following the game.

"Our perseverance through a lot of injuries that were unexpected is something that I've been very proud of", Astros manager AJ Hinch said.
