The Pirates are 19-22 away while the Astros are 28-11.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are feeling just fine with an away record of 19-22. The problem is that tonight they will be facing the Houston Astros and their home record of 28-11. The Astros also lead the American League West as the season continues on.
After a 4 game win streak the Pirates took a loss in game 1 of the 3 game series against the Astros. The plan now is to take back games 2 and 3 before moving on to the next series. With an overall record of 36-41 a few wins would be a great achievement.
The hosting team, The Houston Astros, are sporting a season record of 50-30 making them on of the top in the league. They lead the American League West and seem to have no plans of slowing down. They too have enjoyed a streak before winning their last 2 games. They had just come off of a 7 game losing streak witch is something that will hopefully not arise again.
