They were 15-14 in August and are 8-5 so far in September. The last time they had winning records in each of the two final months was 2010.
09/10/20142326
They took four of five from the Angels and A's last week while making sure they wouldn't lose 100 games again this season. Baby steps, baby.

Heading into July, Chris Carter was hitting .184 with 13 homers. Since then, he's been one of the best hitters in baseball -- not only for the 20 homers, but also for the 16 multi-hit games.
08/27/20142726
They're on pace to go 68-94, which is big, because they haven't avoided 105-plus losses since 2010.
08/20/20142628
Striking out four times before hitting a go-ahead three-run homer in the ninth inning is the most Chris Carter thing ever.

Mark Appel update: He's sporting a 5.02 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in Triple-A. So far, it's an improvement across the board, not that it's reason for optimism.

I would love to see a Jason Castro hot streak to close the season. He has taken a step back so far and has so much talent.

Here they looked like they were about to take two in a row from the mighty A's. What a bummer for Houston that ninth inning was.
07/23/20142727
It's been a rough season for top overall picks by the franchise, but there's still plenty to like about the direction of the club as a whole. That 2017 World Series championship parade might have to be postponed a bit, though.

Too bad they don't play the Rangers more often.
