How have the Astros Done Against Their Opponents of the Future?

With the Astros' weekend series against Cleveland completed, the next time Houston faces an American League team in the regular season, it will not be an interleague contest, as the Astros will also be in the American League.  The Astros faced American League competition 245 times during 16 seasons of interleague play from 1997-2012.  Here's a breakdown of how they fared.

AL West- W -   L

Los Angeles- 3 - 3
Oakland-       1 - 5
Seattle-         6  - 3
Texas-         30-42

Total-          40-53

AL Central

Chicago-       10-11
Cleveland-     10- 8
Detroit-           9 - 6
Kansas City-  17-13
Milwaukee-     1 - 2*
Minnesota-      9 -11

Total-             56-51

AL East

Baltimore-       3 - 6
Boston-           2 - 7
New York-     1 - 8

*- Milwaukee was a member of the American League in 1997, the first year of interleague play.  They played a three-game series against the Astros in the Astrodome that season.
