Astros try to regain momentum against Nationals

HOUSTON -- The Houston Astros already had clinched their series with the American League West cellar-dwelling Oakland Athletics prior to their home loss on Sunday, but that fact did not stem the continuing swell of concern casting a pall over the team with the best record in the AL.

The Astros will keep searching for answers as the Washington Nationals visit Minute Maid Park for a three-game interleague series beginning on Tuesday.

Even after following a season-long five-game losing streak by winning five of eight games, the Astros (76-48) haven't reclaimed the form that saw them reach 34 games over .500 just three weeks ago. Losing 11 of 14 games will raise question marks alongside the red flags hoisted when the club failed to make a significant roster addition at the non-waiver trade deadline.
