Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Another great starting performance, this time by Cristian Javier, and homers by Alvarez and Altuve, get Baker to the historic milestone. It’s almost like to get Dusty Baker to his 2000th win, Houston had to go into some kind of time warp. Last night Astros pitching shut out the Mariners. Tonight they shut out the Mariners again.

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports Luis Garcia Goes for his second win. It was an exciting slugfest last night and the Astros needed almost all of the 11 runs they scored against the powerful Blue Jays lineup. The Stros had 3 homers, including a 3-run job by Jeremy Pena, his fourth of the season and 10th RBI. Although the Astros have been white cold at the bat this season, they are inching up in the OPS ratings, currently 18th in the league. This is mostly due to the youth movement, Pena, and especially the red-hot Kyle Tucker and Yordan Alvarez. Let’s hope they lead the...

Going into the game with a season ERA of 9.00, Odorizzi allowed only one run in six innings pitched, one of his longest starts since joining the Astros. Yordan Alvarez got the scoring started in the second inning when he smashed a...
