The "other" Texas team showed they certainly belong in the discussion Tuesday night, shutting out the New York Yankees in New York 3-0.

This wild-card win was a huge achievement for a team that has struggled for so long, and it'll be interesting to see how the Astros adjust to the Kansas City Royals, a team the Astros beat four times in six games this year.

Of course, the road has been less than kind to the Astros, but the past week's performances from the team might be signifying something different from a possible Cinderella covered in orange and navy.

The team will play in Kansas City on Thursday and Friday, then return to Houston on Sunday.
