Astros' Verlander starts opener at White Sox

The Houston Astros will try to increase their winning streak to four games when they visit the Chicago White Sox on Friday to open a three-game series at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Houston (13-7) is coming off a series win over the Seattle Mariners in which it won the last three games of a four-game set. Through 20 games, the defending World Series champions have outscored opponents 88-55 for a plus-33 run differential.

Now, the Astros will try to keep the good times rolling with ace right-hander Justin Verlander (2-0, 1.35 ERA) on the mound for the series opener. The 35-year-old has shined since arriving from Detroit last season and needs 10 more victories to join the 200-win club.
