Royals-Astros Preview

(AP) -- A home series sweep of the AL leading Kansas City Royals might provide another reason to believe the Houston Astros can remain a serious playoff contender as they approach the halfway point of the season.

They can do so by preventing Edinson Volquez from winning a fifth consecutive start Wednesday night.

Having witnessed Kansas City's surprise run to the World Series last season, Houston (46-34) might have the makings of a club on a similar path following four straight 90-loss seasons. After outscoring the Royals (44-30) 10-1 in the first two of this set, the Astros continue to move closer to the reigning AL champions.
