Astros-Tigers preview

By Rich Shook, The Sports Xchange

DETROIT -- It's one of the more anxious days of the season for players -- the last game day prior to Monday's nonwaiver trade deadline.

Houston closes out its three-game series in Detroit on Sunday with lefty Dallas Keuchel of the Astros opposing Tigers' right-hander Mike Pelfrey. Houston dropped the first two games of the series.
