The Houston Astros clinched the sixth seed in the American League playoffs on Friday night despite being on the losing end in extra innings against the Texas Rangers.

The Astros were the beneficiary of the Los Angeles Angels' 9-5 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. As a result, the Angels were eliminated from their already slim postseason hopes while simultaneously propelling their division rivals to October.

It's the fifth time in six seasons - and fourth consecutive - that the Astros have reached the playoffs. Despite the prolonged success, the 2020 season has not gone according to plan.

In addition to being exposed for illegally stealing signs in 2017 en route to the first World Series victory in franchise history, the Astros have dealt with numerous injuries and hovered around .500 for much of September.

Even though the Astros struggled, the Angels could not capitalize. The Angels continue to squander Mike Trout's prime by failing to reach October for the sixth year in a row even after signing Anthony Rendon in the offseason. They have yet to win a postseason game with Trout on the roster.

Houston's first-round opponent has not yet been determined, though they will face against the third seed and travel to that team's stadium for the three-game series next week.
