Battling Bats, Dazzling Defense Stymie South Side Sox, 7-1.

Astros Sweep Series, End Road Trip 6-1 O Chicago, how can we beat thee? Let me count the ways. Hitting...After scoring 20 runs the last two games, the Astros followed up today with another solid seven run performance, knocking ten hits and coaxing 7 walks while keeping constant pressure on the beleaguered White Sox staff. Though not as proficiently as in the previous two games, the Astros bats bunched together clutch hits and plated runners in scoring position. Some dormant bats came to life today, with Jake Marisnick starting a big rally with his first hit in 22 at bats, Marwin Gonzalez...

Astros observations: Offense inconsistencies and the mostly stellar starting rotation

Well, the Astros offense hasn’t been the best in 2018. But recent games have given glimpses of better days. One Astros’ outfielder, Jake Marisnick, has struck out 24 times in 45 at-bats.

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...
