Astros aim to walk over Rangers again

Plate discipline can manifest in several forms, and for the Houston Astros this season, their ability to avoid the strikeout and put the ball in play is foundational to their offensive exploits.

The Astros enters Saturday's home game against the Texas Rangers with the fewest strikeouts in the American League, striking out 20.8 percent of the time, but that success didn't necessarily correlate to an exceptional ability to work walks from opposing pitchers. Houston batters have walked 123 times -- 52 fewer walks than the MLB-leading Los Angeles Dodgers.

So the results from Friday's game against the Rangers proved moderately surprising.
