Series Preview: Orioles (25-20) @ Astros (32-16)

After getting drubbed and swept in their own ballpark by the Twins, the Orioles will look to bounce back in a hurry on the road as they prepare to take on the flying Houston Astros. We were feeling really good after taking care of business versus Toronto. A lot can change in the span of five days. But the same rule applies to both ends of the spectrum. A few wins on the road against the best team in the majors would do wonders for the Orioles’ psychological swagger. It […] The post Series Preview: Orioles (25-20) @ Astros (32-16) appeared first on Baltimore Orioles News | Eutaw Street...
Tigers 6, Astros 3: Jose Iglesias helps snap 3-game losing streak

Tigers 6, Astros 3: Jose Iglesias helps snap 3-game losing streak

The normally light-hitting Iglesias was nearly all of Detroit’s offense on Wednesday. It’s not easy to snap a losing streak. For a while, it looked like an early lead would be all for nought for the Detroit Tigers. However, a strong outing from starter Daniel Norris and some late-game heroics from Jose Iglesias helped the Tigers break a 2-2 tie and stop a three-game skid. They beat the Houston Astros 6-3, and put themselves in a position to earn a series split on Thursday. After a pair of scoreless innings to open the game, the Tigers broke through in the third. Jose Iglesias singled to...

MLB Rumors: Astros ‘very interested’ in Pirates’ Gerrit Cole

MLB Rumors: Astros ‘very interested’ in Pirates’ Gerrit Cole

Houston may be looking for a big arm to back up Dallas Keuchel. The first-place Houston Astros may be looking to strengthen their starting rotation this summer, and one of their potential targets is Pirates’ starter Gerrit Cole. The Astros, owners of the best record in baseball, are reportedly ‘very interested’ in making a move for the right hander, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. Adding Cole would immediately place the Astros as the favorites in the American League, if they aren’t already. A one-two punch of Cole and Dallas Keuchel in the starting rotation would be...

Houston Astros: The resurgence of Dallas Keuchel

After the first 45 games of the 2016 season, the Houston Astros were in last place in the American League West with a 17-28 record. The Astros’ play eventually picked up and they finished the year with a winning record (84-78). Their record was only good enough for a third place finish in the AL […] The post Houston Astros: The resurgence of Dallas Keuchel appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Astros @ Marlins – If Spinning Dolphins are Your Thing…

ASTROS @ MARLINS May 15-17, 2017 What happened in the last series? The Astros took three of four from the Yankees in The House that Dallas Built on Derek Jeter Schlongfest Weekend, making an emphatic (if early) statement about the pecking order in the American League.  Mike Fiers wasn’t even completely terrible, although the bullpen […]

5/11 to 5/14 Series Preview: Houston Astros

A strong argument can be made that this is the series to watch this weekend, regardless of your fandom. As of this morning, the Yankees and Astros rank in the top-five in winning percentage, runs scored, runs allowed, run differential, wRC+, and park-adjusted ERA; and, beyond that, both teams are headlined by young sluggers. In […] The post 5/11 to 5/14 Series Preview: Houston Astros appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

What happened in the last series? The Yanks are coming […]
