Houston Astros vs. Toronto Blue Jays, first game of the series, the Astros look for a hundred win at home, and against the Blue Jays could be much easier than they expect. The home team so far has made a luxurious season to remember for a long time, although the home record could improve with these last 6 games of the season at home.
