Mariners drown in 7-1 loss

Mariners drown in 7-1 loss

It was pretty decent up until the 7th Hopes were high coming into tonight. The M’s had yet to lose a game this season with Leake on the mound, and were hungry to bounce back from last night’s upsetting loss. The Astros too, had yet to lose a game with their starter, Gerrit Cole. Going into the game, one team had to budge. Sadly, it was not the Astros. The Mariners held their ground throughout the first six innings of play, though. The only run allowed by Leake within that time came from a double to Brian McCann in the second, a double that allowed Marwin Gonzalez to score from first....

Max Stassi Here to Stay with the Houston Astros?

Alex Bregman Delivered the Most Bizarre Walkoff Hit in Houston Astros History

Alex Bregman Delivered the Most Bizarre Walkoff Hit in Houston Astros History

Bottom of the 10th inning... Two outs... Derek Fisher on second base as a pinch runner... Alex Bregman at the plate. No, I’m not talking about Game 5 of the 2017 World Series. The Astros and Padres were locked in a 0-0 tie in the 10th inning after a masterful seven-inning performance from Gerrit Cole and, well, a good enough performance from Padres starter Bryan Mitchell. Brian McCann stepped up to the plate, delivered a base hit, and then was substituted for Derek Fisher. After Fisher stole second base, Jake Marisnick and George Springer each failed to bring the young Astros outfielder...
