Astros: Dissecting Alex Bregman’s first 40 games

Back in the preseason, I was of the mind that given the loss of Carlos Correa in the lineup the Houston Astros were in need of the 2019 version of Alex Bregman in order to successfully defend their American League West and American League crowns. I look up in late May to find the Astros […] Astros: Dissecting Alex Bregman’s first 40 games - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - Houston Astros News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Why a Juan Soto Trade Makes Sense For the Astros

The Astros are once again contenders for a World Series title, but every contender could always use an upgrade to bolster their team towards October. The Houston Astros yet again have a deep lineup one through seven with Jose Altuve, Michael Brantley, Alex Bregman, Yordan Alvarez, Yuli Gurriel, Kyle Tucker and Jeremy Peña. But it […] Why a Juan Soto Trade Makes Sense For the Astros - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - Houston Astros News, Rumors, and Fan Community

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports Luis Garcia takes on Nick Pivetta Last nights five homers in one inning will go down forever in Astros lore. Let’s hope there is enough ammo in the bats tonight to help the Astros take this series in Boston. Normal lineup tonight, except Aledmys Diaz replaces Alex Bregman at 3B and third in the batting order.

Five Homer, Nine Run 2nd Inning Propels Astros to 13-4 Slaughter of the Boys from Bean Town.

Five Homer, Nine Run 2nd Inning Propels Astros to 13-4 Slaughter of the Boys from Bean Town.

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports Kyle Tucker leads the onslaught with two homers and a grand slam. Nathan Eovaldi is now officially the Astros’ favorite pitcher. In 2018, while pitching for the Tampa Bay Rays, Eovaldi gave up consecutive home runs to Jose Altuve, George Springer, and Alex Bregman. Later that season Eovaldi was traded to the Boston Red Sox, and just before the Astros faced the Sox in the ALCS, Bregman trolled Eovaldi by playing a video loop of the three homers on Instagram. Eovaldi got his revenge in Game 3 of the series, but tonight the Astros got the...

Verlander Lights Out as Astros Sweep the Mariners. Bats Come Alive in 7-2 Romp.

Verlander Lights Out as Astros Sweep the Mariners. Bats Come Alive in 7-2 Romp.

Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports Alex Bregman provided the offensive punch with three RBI. Verlander really does seem to be getting better and better. At 39 his fastball is still routinely at 95 MPH, and it seems he can throw any of his pitches into a tin can at will. When he throws a ball, most of the time it is because he was aiming at the corner, and he just missed the plate. He had a shutout today going into the seventh inning until Eugenio Suarez hit a two-run homer into left-center field. They were the only two runs scored by the Mariners in the whole series. For the...

Astros Bring The Fireworks Early, Beat Toronto 11-7

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports Alex Bregman and Company brought the bats to Toronto and the pitching staff did just enough to preserve the win Friday Night Fireworks happened north of the border tonight in Toronto. The Astros bats were on fire tonight from the word go and the Astros pitching staff didn’t have to worry about too much tonight.

Limp Bats Sink Astros Yet Again. Blue Jays Take Opener 4-3

Limp Bats Sink Astros Yet Again. Blue Jays Take Opener 4-3

Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports Verlander surrenders two solo homers. Neris gives up game -losing run in the ninth Seven hits won’t win many games. Even with Justin Verlander pitching. Unfortunately, of late seven hits is a good night for the Astros, who entered the game hitting below the Mendoza line as a team. At least tonight they strung together a few of the hits, Alex Bregman getting an RBI single and Yuli Gurriel following soon after with a two RBI hit in the third inning. The Blue Jays answered with a run in the fourth on singles by Raimel Tapia and Vladimir...
