The National League takes today off, so today will be all A.L. series, Game 2.
The Rangers edged by the Orioles 3-2 in Game 1, in part because Baltimore made the inexplicable decision to take the tying run off base in a stolen base attempt in the ninth inning.
Meanwhile, the Astros built up a 5-0 lead thanks to home runs by Jose Altuve and Yordan Alvarez and held off a late Twins rally to win 6-4.
