For the Houston Astros, there’s no place like the road

Sports fans, how can we help the team maintain their winning streak here in Houston?

The Houston Astros have performed better on the road than at home this season.

And that pattern has continued into the postseason.

Take the ALCS for example. They lost games 1 and 2 to the Rangers at Minute Maid Park, but won games 3 and 4 at Globe Life Field.

They have one more road test today, playing game 5 in Arlington. But after that, they return to Houston for the rest of the series.

Some believe the key to winning this series might be…making the Astros feel like they are playing on the road, even when they are at home.

Here are few creative suggestions fans have shared with us:

“Change signs around stadium to reflect ranger stadium, keep them in hotel rooms close curtains.” - Sylvia Cardenas

“Do a sage cleanse at Minute Maid.” - Cammy Henson Dunford

“Have team stay at hotel & use road trip protocols.” - Cammy Henson Dunford

“Have our Houston fans act like Rangers fans lol.” - Mitchell Heyne
