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.
