Verlander, Astros ready to hit reset button vs. Rangers

At some point, the Astros were bound to appear mortal, sure to taste defeat again, and likely to resemble something other than a juggernaut steamrolling the rest of the American League.

With a 2-1 loss at Oakland on Wednesday, Houston saw its 10-game winning streak come to an end. The Astros produced a plus-29 run differential during that stretch and presented all the earmarks of what makes them a formidable championship contender: power up and down their lineup, sterling starting pitching and a dominant back end of the bullpen. Houston won the first four games of its current eight-game road trip against AL West opponents, a stretch that continues on Friday against the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

The Rangers were the last team to tame the Astros prior to Wednesday, claiming back-to-back home victories on April 2-3. Houston returns to the scene of its first-week struggles, seemingly better positioned to continue matching the hype that accompanied the Astros to open the year.
