Astros-Red Sox Preview

(AP) -- The Houston Astros had little time to enjoy a sweep of the AL leaders before learning they'd open a road swing without their leadoff man and top defensive outfielder.

With George Springer sidelined for an extended period, the Astros look to keep rolling with their fifth consecutive victory Friday night against the resurgent Boston Red Sox.

After hitting .207 over his first 38 games, Springer gave Houston a lift with a .380 average, six home runs and 10 RBIs in a 27-game stretch after being moved into the top spot in the lineup May 24.
