Astros and Rangers will kick off second half with a bang

Bregman suffers chin laceration after taking ground ball off face

The Astros have been above average on offense so far as they come in ranked 10th in the league in scoring, putting up 5.09 rpg, while also ranking 4th in hitting at.269 and 8th in homers with 142. Odor is 11-for-32 with four doubles, a triple, three home runs and 13 RBIs over the last 10 games for Texas. Yordan Alvarez, Yuli Gurriel and Tyler White each had two RBis with Alvarez hitting a pair of home runs while going 3 for 3 at the dish and Gurriel added a home run of his own. His 183 strikeouts for the season pushed him two past Washington's Max Scherzer for the big league lead. Shin-Soo Choo has 11 hits and is batting.297 over the last 10 games for Texas.

Tim Federowicz smacked Texas' fourth homer, a solo shot off Astros right-hander Will Harris.

In the end, the Rangers won the game, so Drake's non-strike calls didn't cost Texas too much. Cole has 42 strikeouts over 22 1/3 innings in four starts against Texas this season. The Astros are scheduled to start right-hander Gerrit Cole, left-hander Wade Miley and right-hander Justin Verlander over the remainder of the four-game series. It is his club-record 10th season with at least 20. A groundball took a nasty hop and hit him on the face when he was playing shortstop in the series opener.

Rangers: Hunter Pence, out since June 17 (right groin strain), could be activated as early as Saturday. Correa and super utility man Aledmys Diaz remain on the 10-day injured list, but both are set to return sometime this month with the design of finally making the Astros whole again. Minor is 3-0 with a 2.18 ERA in his past six games, the last a no-decision against the Los Angeles Angels on July 2.

The Rangers will counter with Mike Minor in this one and he has gone 8-4 with a 2.54 ERA in 18 starts on the year, including 2-0 with a 2.11 ERA in his last three starts and 4-2 with a 2.34 ERA in nine starts here at home.

Despite the issue, which also included some on-field discussion between Drake and manager Chris Woodward after the second inning, Chavez managed to stay in the game to pitch into the sixth.

Pitch No. 1 and pitch No. 7 stand out as borderline calls that went against Chavez.
