Rangers-Astros Preview

(AP) -- Though the Texas Rangers own the worst record in the majors, they've managed to play well of late.

Trying for a fourth win in five games, the visiting Rangers look to halt Collin McHugh's August success with the Houston Astros on Thursday night.

After Texas (52-80) avoided being swept by AL Central-leading Kansas City with a 3-1 victory Sunday, it took two of three from wild-card contending Seattle this week. Twenty-year-old Rougned Odor became the youngest player to hit a grand slam since Jose Reyes in 2003, and Leonys Martin hit a two-run shot in a 12-4 rout Wednesday.
