George Springer leads the team in homeruns with seven so far this season. He also has 12 RBI's. Josh Reddick leads the team with a .341 batting average.

Dallas Keuchel's record is 3-0 with a ERA. He has only walked six batters and struck out 22 so far this season.

Ken Giles is 3 for 3 in saves this season. Houston's goal is to win the division and make a deep run in the postseason.
