Down goes Bush, Klein, Friendswood, Foster, Dawson and Tomball. It was an important weekend for playoff position and district titles and the rankings reflect the results.

Katy crushed Strake Jesuit to win District 19-6A, while The Woodlands clinched District 12-6A in a win over Montgomery. Westfield are the kings of District 16-6A.

There are some huge games in the last weekend of the regular season that determine conference bragging rights. Cy-Fair and Langham Creek will play for the District 17-6A title, while Clear Lake and Clear Springs battle for District 24-6A.

Magnolia West and Huntsville square off for District 20-5A, while Crosby and New Caney face off for District 21-5A.

Stay tuned for our breakdowns later this week.

Pasadena Memorial, North Shore, Klein Oak and Deer Park all make their moves into the Class 6A rankings.

STORYLINES

Season finale - The Astros will wrap up their regular season with their four game set in Arlington at the new Globe Life Field. Houston's magic number rests at two, as the Angels still have a puncher's chance. With Houston's miserable 8-20 road record, the postseason is anything but clinched.

Where's the offense? - The Astros offense has left a lot to be desired over the last few weeks, scoring more than three runs just twice in their last ten games. The bats really need to get going, especially if the team expects to do anything in the playoffs. George Springer has been the only reliable bat of late, with the performances of Carlos Correa, Yuli Gurriel, Alex Bregman, and, most of all, Jose Altuve, leaving a lot to be desired.

Playoff seeding - If the playoffs started today, the Astros would face off with their division rivals in Oakland. There's an infinite number of possibilities over the next four games, but the Astros can see themselves finish anywhere from the fifth seed to out of the playoffs entirely. Any of Tampa Bay, Minnesota, Oakland, Chicago, New York, and Cleveland could be first round foes depending on how the cards fall.

PREDICTION

Lance Lynn has been one of the better pitchers in the game for a few years now, Kyle Cody is an intriguing young arm with good stuff, and Jordan Lyles and Kyle Gibson gave the Astros fits in Houston just last week. It isn't a recipe for success for Houston. The Astros win 1 of 4, which combined with the Angels and Mariners failing to take care of business, is enough to get Houston into the playoffs.
