Covers Preview - Coming back home after a successful West Coast trip, the Houston Astros entered the weekend with plenty of reason to believe they would keep rolling in their quest to steal one of the American League's two wild-card berths. Instead, it has been the Los Angeles Angels who have played like their postseason hopes are on the line, leaving the Astros hoping they can avoid a four-game sweep Sunday against a team they have dominated this season.
