Astros-Twins Preview

(AP) -- A lethal combination of power and speed has helped the Houston Astros to what could be their best season in over a decade.

It's their starting pitching, however, that is most responsible for their run of success lately.

Scott Kazmir will try to continue an impressive run by Houston's starters Friday night when the AL West leaders open a three-game series against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field.
