FEELING MINNESOTA MIGHT BE TOO COLD FOR ASTROS

THE ASTROS will have no choice but to “chill out” in Minnesota while the Rockets play their penultimate game of a historic regular season for the franchise. Both high school baseball and softball begin their stretch runs as the normal Tuesday schedule will write another chapter in the quest for the postseason.
TODAY, SUNDAY: Charlie Morton makes his second start of the season for the
Astros in the finale of a weekend set against the visiting Padres. Morton scattered
three hits over six shutout innings and earned the win in Monday’s victory over the Orioles. San Diego will throw Tyson Ross (1-0, 4.50 ERA) in a contest that will begin at 1:10pm. AT&T Sportsnet Southwest will have the game live starting with the pregame show at 12:30pm.
TOMORROW, MONDAY: The road to Austin begins in earnest for track and field
athletes in both 24-6A and 24-3A as each district opens its championship meets.
The 24-6A meet will be held Challenger/Columbia Stadium in League City while Rice Consolidated hosts the 24-3A meet. Each event will conclude on Thursday.
“Bundle up” will be the watchword for the Astros, who travel to Minnesota to face the Twins. Gametime temperatures are expected to be in the low-to-mid 30s as Justin Verlander seeks his second win of the season for Houston. Jake Ororizzi, who has pitched well in his two previous starts despite failing to earn a win, goes for the Twins.  The weather will be less frigid for those watching on AT&T Sportsnet Southwest, who will launch coverage with a pregame show at 6:30pm leading into the 7:10pm start.
TUESDAY: A busy evening of high school baseball starts at 6:00pm when Rice Consolidated visits La Marque. Clear Falls at Alvin, Dickinson at Clear Creek, Friendswood at Clear Lake, Brazos at Hitchcock and Galveston Ball at Santa Fe will each start at 7:00pm.
In softball, Rice Consolidated at La Marque begins the evening’s action at 6:00pm.  Dickinson at Alvin, Clear Brook at Clear Lake, Clear Falls at Clear Springs, Galveston Ball at Fort Bend Willowridge, and Brazos at Hitchcock are each 6:30pm starts while Friendswood at Clear Creek starts at 6:45pm.
The weather will remain cold for the Astros in the second game of their set at the
Twins. Dallas Keuchel (0-1, 3.27 ERA) takes the mound for Houston and will be opposed by Minnesota hurler Kyle Gibson (1-0, 0.87 ERA) when first pitch is thrown at 7:10pm. AT&T Sportsnet will have the coverage starting with the pregame show at 6:30pm.
With the top spot in the Western Conference locked up, don’t be surprised if the
Rockets rest some key players when they visit the Lakers beginning at 9:30pm on
TNT. Houston has taken two of the three meetings this season with Los Angeles, the most recent a 148-142 slugfest at Toyota Center on New Year’s Eve that needed two overtimes and 40 points from James Harden before the Rockets could escape.
