This Team is Hot

Submitted by NeilT Astros 4 Royals 0 So we planned this trip months ago, thinking it would be fun to go someplace the Astros were playing. And it has been fun. The Stros traded for Kazmir yesterday, he shows up in Kansas City and 3 hit the Royals over 7 scoreless innings. Three singles. That’s all. [...]

Red Sox 4, Astros 5: Red Sox find new depths

Will the Red Sox ever win another game? For the first time this year, the Red Sox have dropped eight straight games thanks to a 5-4 loss to the Houston Astros, the result of a seventh-inning bullpen implosion. For once, the Red Sox were no facing an immediate deficit. In fact, they had the early lead in the first after David Ortiz doubled home Mookie Betts.Wade Miley would stumble a bit out of the gates, allowing the Astros to respond right away as Marwin Gonzalez took him deep in the bottom of the inning, but Mike Napoli's first home run since June 17th gave the Sox their lead right...

Rays 4, Astros 3: WE SWEEPIN'

Today's win locks down a sweep of the Astros, and puts our Tampa Bay Baseball Club over .500 heading into the All Star Break. The winning streak continues! Our Tampa Bay Rays beat the Houston Astros for the third straight time, and officially enter the All Star Break with a winning record. Matt Moore got the win, but clearly was not his sharpest today. He struggled with his fastball command at times, but did sprinkle in some delightful breaking balls throughout his outing as well. Post-TJ-Matt continues to be a work in progress, but he was able to hold the Astros to just three runs over...

Angels Can't Seize Throne, Lose 5-0

Needing a victory to pass the Astros and reclaim first place, the Angel bats went silent in a 5 - 0 loss. Mariners 5, Angels 0 It had been 85 days since the Angels had tasted the sweet nectar of first place.  The Astros had played their part as cupbearer earlier in the day, losing their fifth in a row to bring the two teams into a virtual tie.  Facing the mediocre Mariners, the goblet was well within reach.  A sippy cup would have served better. The game started dubiously.  Giavotella, playing the part as leadoff man, drew a walk to begin the game.  Calhoun grounded a single through...

Rays 3, Astros 0: Odorizzi returns, leads Rays to shutout victory

Jake Odorizzi returned from the DL to lead the Rays to a combined effort shutout win over the Houston Astros. After finding the winning side of the ledger for the first time in over a week on Friday night against the Houston Astros, the Rays looked to do so again, this time against arguably the best pitcher in the American League in 2015:  Dallas Keuchel. Tampa Bay got another fresh face back off of the DL, with Jake Odorizzi making his return from an oblique strain Saturday afternoon. The Rays offense came to play early in the game, with Keuchel looking decidedly less sharp in the second...

Red Sox 8, Astros 12: Sox repeat mistakes, expect different results

It was a loss the Red Sox should have seen coming, and avoided. The Red Sox fell to the Astros 12-8 Friday night in extra innings, and it's easy to see why. The first four innings were pitched by Justin Masterson. The eight by Craig Breslow. The tenth by fresh call-up Noe Ramirez. Well damn, John, at that point you're pretty much asking for it. After three more improbable scoreless innings to start the game, Justin Masterson turned in an entirely more likely five-run fourth inning against the Astros. He almost had it under control, getting a pair of outs after the first two batters reached...

Game 76: Pineda, Yankees going for series win over Astros

I have made the executive decision to downgrade Michael Pineda from Big Mike to Midsize Mike, at least temporarily. Pineda didn’t just get hammered last time out (eight runs in 3.1 innings), he has a 6.10 ERA in his last seven starts and 38.1 innings overall. That dates back to the 16-strikeout game.
