    Last season, Dallas Keuchel was darn near unhittable.

    He tossed a league-high 232 innings while also leading the league in wins (20) and shutouts (2).

    Yet, in Arlington, he struggled. He was 0-1 with an 8.49 ERA in two starts while the Rangers hit .333 against him in their home park.

    This year, Keuchel has struggled and is a big reason the Astros are still chasing .500. He's 3-7 with a 5.50 ERA and leads the league in hits allowed (82) and earned runs (46).

    Now, he's coming back to his personal house of horrors to face the best team in the American League and an offense that has surged ever since Jurickson Profar was placed at the top of the lineup.

    The Rangers will be looking to win their 12th straight game over the Astros in Arlington and their eighth straight over Houston this year, and it'll be Keuchel who's trying to stop that.

    Good luck.
