What To Watch For:

- Deja vu, the Astros aim to repeat the mid-June success they had in Los Angeles

- Empty Dodger Stadium seats (and a lot of them)

- Whether Houston’s young offense can maintain its recent barrage on opposing pitchers

- More Brad Mills late-inning hi-jinx to throw away games

- The answer to the question we’ve all been wondering:  is J.D. Martinez truly human or actually a cyborg?

- A terrific Saturday night lefty-lefty battle

- Bud Norris’ health situation (recurring blister & recent poor performance…)
