Game Recap: Mariners Shell ‘Stros, take Series with 9-0 Win

Seattle wins the final meeting of 2018 and the season series as Houston’s offense sputters The Astros took one on the chin tonight as DK’s 1st inning woes would continue to haunt him while the ugly side of Houston’s home offense would show up again. Those two combined for a listless loss where Seattle would run away with things early and cruise to an easy victory while the Astros struggled to get anything going on the basepaths. Even more bruising to the ego was the fact that Seattle would have a bullpen day, burning through 7 relievers who would all keep Houston from effectively...

Astros: The future of the rotation has arrived in Valdez and James

The Astros have two potential pieces for the 2019 roster pitching some big innings down the stretch in 2018.

Game Thread no. 151. Seattle Mariners at Houston Astros. Sept 19, 2018, 7:10 CDT

The Astros are closing in. The Mariners are out. Join the discussion as the Astros seek to reduce the magic number to as low as 5 with a victory tonight. The Astros shelled a sloppy Mariners team last night who couldn’t get real wood on Astros rookie pitcher Josh James, winning 7-0. Tonight the Mariners send their own rookie to the mound, Matt Festa, who in 5.1 innings pitched has a 1.69 ERA but a 1.69 WHIP. The Astros counter with Dallas Keuchel, (11-10, 3.57 ERA). With an Astros win and an A’s loss tonight the Astros would only need any combination of five wins or five A’s losses...

Cause it’s 1..2....3 Astros facts are out

Cause it’s 1..2....3 Astros facts are out

Strikeouts 1.) 529 Strikeouts Justin Verlander (269) and Gerrit Cole (260) combined for the 529 strikeouts so far this season. This is the most ever for the 1-2 combo of the Astros. The last time any team had 2 pitchers with 250+ strikeouts each was Randy Johnson / Curt Schilling in 2002. 2.) The Astros have struck out 1,580 batters this season. That’s the most in the majors, outpacing the Yankees by 80. Which is impressive in itself, but if they get 35 strike outs total in the next 11 games, they will break the record for the most strike-outs as a team in the history of baseball! 3.)...

Astros: Josh James impresses picking up his first MLB win

The Astros’ right-hander played a crucial role in the team’s 7-0 win over Seattle last night. Josh James got his first Major League start and showed early on why the Astros made him one of their September call-ups. The hard-throwing right-hander dominated Mariners hitters, and left them clueless at the plate.

Astros: Lance McCullers progressing towards a return

Barring a setback, the Astros appear hopeful that Lance McCullers will make his return before the regular season ends. Through early August the Astros were the lone team in the majors to use only five starting pitchers. That streak in today’s baseball is quite impressive. Unfortunately, it was snapped when McCullers landed on the DL […] Astros: Lance McCullers progressing towards a return - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - A Houston Astros Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
