Astros-Rangers Preview

(AP) -- Already in the thick of the wild-card race, the Texas Rangers also have a chance to become a factor in the AL West. Giving the ball to Colby Lewis in the opener of this Lone Star Series is a good way to start.

Lewis looks to continue his dominance of the division-leading Houston Astros on Monday night.

Texas (51-53) is three games back of Minnesota for the league's second wild-card spot. The Rangers, who trail Houston (60-46) by eight in the West, are looking to Lewis (11-4, 4.42 ERA) to start whittling that down.
