Jose Altuve and the Houston Astros have found themselves in a three-team battle for the American League West as they close out a weekend series with the Boston Red Sox. For a while, it looked like this series might be a preview of what could come in October. But not so fast, as the Astros need to focus on actually making the playoffs. The Red Sox, meanwhile, are eying October, with a comfortable lead in the AL East.
