MLB Standings Update: Astros Are On Pace To Finish Last In N.L. Central

Even though the Houston Astros showed some life this past weekend as they won two of three from the Milwaukee Brewers; those two wins were the only one's that the Astros earned since last week. With a 2-5 week, the Astros are falling even farther behind the N.L Central leading Cincinnati Reds and are an astonishing 31.5 games back out of first place.

The closest team to the Astros are the Chicago Cubs who are 7.5 games ahead of the Astros, so the odds are good that the Astros will finish last in the N.L. Central and possibly even end the season with the worst record in all of baseball.

Astros Vs. Brewers: Saturday Game Preview, TV Info And More

This is not a joke. The Astros won a game on Friday night. And seriously, they have an opportunity to win consecutive games for the first time in six weeks. For team playing a sport that plays almost every day, that's saying a lot, not that we didn't already know the Stros were worst team in Major League Baseball.

It doesn't appear to be something the team is dwelling on, though. They scored a pair of runs in the ninth inning on Friday to pull away with an exciting victory against an opponent that's almost as bad on the road as the Stros.

But anyway, Dallas Keuchel will take the mound for Houston on Saturday. He's struggled since those first couple of starts in his big league career with an ERA that's climbed all the way up to 5.60. He'll face Marco Estrada in the pitching duel.

Take a look here at the game schedule and broadcast information:
