Three up, three downUP
1. Rangers: Ten consecutive wins is longest hot streak since an 11-game run in 2010, but Astros still rule AL West by 6 ½ games.
2. Astros: Houston has a problem. Ace Dallas Keuchel, 7-0 with a 1.84 ERA, is headed to the DL with a pinched nerve in his neck.
3. Rockies: Just the second time in franchise history they’ve been in first place through 43 games. The first time was in 1995.
1. Marlins: Opened season 10-8 but have gone 4-19 since and sunk into the NL East basement.
2. Reds: Loss to Rockies Friday night was their seventh straight, and starters have a 5.69 ERA, the worst in baseball.
3. Padres: Veteran Jared Weaver booed off the mound as San Diego fell to 15-29, its worst 44-game start in the Petco Park era.
