Astros seek best AL record with White Sox in town

HOUSTON -- Now that their pursuit of the American League West pennant is complete, the Houston Astros can focus their attention on two final issues as the regular season winds down.

With 13 games remaining, the Astros (91-58) stand just 1 1/2 games behind the Cleveland Indians in the chase for the best record in the AL and home-field advantage in the postseason. The Indians own the tiebreaker by virtue of winning the season series 5-1.

Of equal significance for Houston is the need to get All-Star right-hander Lance McCullers healthy. Astros brass had hoped to have McCullers available to start the series opener against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday at Minute Maid Park, but after he tossed a bullpen session on Saturday, McCullers remains sidelined by arm fatigue, the latest in a long string of issues.
