Game Recap: Astros Bats Quiet Again. Seattle Takes 3rd Straight From Houston 3-2.

Now Just 5 Games Behind Astros with one more game in series. The Seattle Mariners have just beaten Justin Verlander, Gerrit Cole, and Charlie Morton in order. Three All Star pitchers, Cy Young candidates, as dominant a pitching trio as baseball has seen since the 1990’s Atlanta Braves. The Seattle Mariners beat all three. Three stoppers have failed to stop. The Mariners have breached the walls of the Great Houston Pitching Fortress. Will the barbarians sack our city? I know, over dramatic as usual. The Astros still hold a five game lead over the Mariners in the AL West, although the...

Game Recap: Gonzo Bomb in Ninth Wins it. Astros 3-1 over Giants.

Three run homer accounts for all Astros runs. Charlie Morton excellent again. O Marwin, where hath thou been? Last season Marwin Gonzalez was one of the biggest surprises, and also one of the most valuable players on the Astros. A usually light hitting utility player who can float anywhere in the infield and gun down runners with the best of them in left field, last year he broke out with the bat, hitting .303, with 23 home runs and a 143 wRC+. He will live in Houston sports immortality for his ninth inning home run in World Series Game 2, which put that game into extra innings, a game...

The Astros had a not very good game last night for many reasons

Many things attributed to the Astros losing the final game of the brief two-game series versus the Rockies. If Astros fans went to sleep early last night, they probably slept through Tuesday’s dramatic six runs in the tenth inning. With Charlie Morton on the mound, the Astros were hoping to get the two-game sweep in […] The Astros had a not very good game last night for many reasons - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - A Houston Astros Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
