Astros need to avoid sweep to keep playoff hopes alive

HOUSTON -- This wasn't how the weekend seemed destined to play out, not with the Houston Astros in dogged pursuit of a postseason berth as an American League wild card and not with the lowly Los Angeles Angels playing out the string in a disappointing season.

On Saturday night, the Angels set the stage for a series sweep on Sunday with a 10-4 victory over the fading Astros (81-74), scoring nine runs in their final two at-bats to erase a three-run deficit and stun Houston for a second consecutive game.

In dropping their third successive game to the Angels, the Astros fell three games behind the Orioles for the second wild-card spot with seven games to play. Also between the Astros and Orioles are the Tigers (83-71) and Mariners (81-73), a sour turn of events for the Astros after they entered the weekend one game out of the postseason and hosting a team they'd defeated 11 times in 12 meetings.
