Astros (26-15) update: To call George Springer a viable Player of the Week candidate is an understatement. In helping the Astros win six of their seven games from Monday through Sunday, Springer slashed .519/.563/1.148, going 14-for-27 with five homers, 10 runs and 10 RBIs. …With his two homers Sunday, Springer has 136 for his career, moving him out of a tie with Richard Hidalgo (134) for ninth place in franchise history and putting him within two of Jose Cruz (138) for eighth. … Springer (1.060), Michael Brantley (.968) and Alex Bregman (.967) rank first, sixth and seventh in the American League in OPS. … The Astros have hit an MLB-best five grand slams, two shy of the club record accomplished in 2001, 2007 and 2018. … Verlander has 210 career wins, 183 of which came in his 13 seasons with Detroit. He is tied with Jesse Haines for 98th on the all-time list and with his next victory will join Kevin Brown, Bobo Newsom, Billy Pierce and Bob Welch in a tie for 94th place at 211.

Tigers (18-20) update: While the Astros lead the majors in every slash line category at .281/.352/.503, Detroit is 25th in all three at .228/.296/.378. … Miguel Cabrera leads Detroit with a .294 batting average and 15 RBIs, but the future Hall of Famer’s power has virtually disappeared. Only seven of the 36-year-old first baseman’s 42 hits have gone for extra bases (six doubles, one home run). … With 2,718 career hits, Cabrera is 64th all-time and on the verge of passing Lou Gehrig (2,721), Roberto Alomar (2,724), Carlos Beltran (2,725) and Chipper Jones (2,726) in the very near future. … Closer Shane Greene (1.50 ERA, 0.78 WHIP) has an AL-best 15 saves.
