The Astros had a great weekend and swept the Rangers in Arlington despite some underwhelming pitching performances from Charlie Morton and Dallas Keuchel. Houston's weak schedule all the way to the All-Star break should put the ball club back in first place, and give the team an edge heading into the second half of the season.

Finally, A.J. Hinch won Sunday's game for the Astros after arguing a missed balk call by the umpires. Managers are not even allowed to argue balks, which made this such an impressive move by Hinch.
