Indians face Astros for final time as NL foe

HOUSTON -- Sunday's series finale at Minute Maid Park is likely the final time the Indians will face the Astros as a National League opponent. Houston moves to the American League West next season.

"It's not going to be easy for the fans," Cleveland manager Manny Acta noted. "It's something that's been here for so long and being in the National League and used to National League baseball, it's going to take a while for the fans."

Houston is celebrating its 50-year anniversary as a Major League franchise, all in the NL. But Acta said he believes the fans of Houston will come to support the team in the AL.

"Just like everything else, they'll get used to it," he said. "But at first, it's going to be hard."
