The Houston Astros may be bitter rivals of the Texas Rangers, but they inadvertently helped prepare the Rangers for the World Series. The Astros’ grudge match mentality forced the Rangers to earn their spot in the Fall Classic, teaching them not to underestimate their opponents. Another lesson learned was the importance of patience at the plate, as the Rangers struggled with swinging at anything in the Astros series. Lastly, the Rangers’ pitchers had to adapt their strategies against hot hitters like Yordan Alvarez and Jose Altuve, a skill they’ll need to use against the Arizona Diamondbacks. In the end, if the Rangers win the World Series, they may owe a debt of gratitude to their rivals from Houston.
