PHOENIX -- The Astros' season will not come to an end Sunday. That much they ensured by winning for the sixth time in seven games, 6-2, behind two homers by Colby Rasmus and a strong pitching performance from Collin McHugh on Saturday night at Chase Field.
With the Angels rallying to beat the Rangers earlier Saturday, the Astros enter the final day of the regular season one game behind the first-place Rangers in the American League West and a game ahead of the Angels in the race for the AL's final Wild Card spot. Houston can not be eliminated on Sunday.
