Facing a four-game sweep and having lost two games directly due to fielding errors, the Houston Astros (baseball's worst team) are ready to send off the Washington Nationals (baseball's best). Luckily for Houston, they'll start Lucas Harrell, who is 6-1 at home this season with an ERA of 2.02 in nine home starts. A win for the Astros would break up what's been a devastating slide the last two months: Houston is 4-33 in their last 37 games, and have only one win in August.
