Astros’ Darryl Kile no-hits Mets, 24 years ago today

Darryl Kile threw a Houston Astros no-hitter, 24 years ago today. Kile struck out nine while walking one in the Wednesday, September 8, 1993, game at the Astrodome in which the Astros won 7-1. Kile retired the first 10 New York Mets batters, but the Mets got their run in the fourth thanks to a …

Alex Avila also drove in a game-winning run for his new team.

Tigers trade Justin Verlander to Astros for 3 prospects

Tigers trade Justin Verlander to Astros for 3 prospects

The Cy Young winner will leave the team after 13 seasons. Justin Verlander has been traded to the Houston Astros, after a long night of back-and-forth between the two clubs. In return the Tigers will receive prospects Franklin Perez, Daz Cameron, and Jake Rogers. There has been no report of any salary changing hands yet. The trade comes after a summer of rumors that saw the star drawing interest from teams like the Astros, Chicago Cubs, and Los Angeles Dodgers. When Verlander wasn’t moved at the July 31 deadline it seemed likely he’d spend the remainder of the season with Detroit, but...

Rays will donate proceeds from Houston Astros series to hurricane relief

Rays will donate proceeds from Houston Astros series to hurricane relief

The team is doing their best to help Texas In the wake of the tragic events unfolding in Houston this past week, a practical question of baseball was raised. It wasn’t something anyone wanted to be thinking about while people were evacuating and images filled the internet of people rushing to safety from the rising water, but still, the MLB needed to know: Where will the Houston Astros play? For the Astros players, many of whom had friends and family in the area, it certainly wasn’t their foremost concern, but there were still home games to be played, and no obvious place to move to....

Houston Astros home games may be moved Tropicana Field

Houston Astros home games may be moved Tropicana Field

Could St. Pete offer a safe haven for the Astros? The Houston Astros may be in need of a temporary home ballpark as Texas has been pounded by Hurricane Harvey. The Tampa Bay Rays are in the midst of a road trip that’ll keep them away from Tropicana Field until September 4th. The Texas Rangers and Houston Astros are scheduled to play Tuesday at Minute Maid Park, but that is looking very doubtful as Houston and its surrounding areas are heavily flooded, making safe passage to and from the ballpark almost impossible. So, instead, major league baseball may move the series, with Tropicana...

Washington Nationals’ new bullpen finally blows lead, but Nats fight back for 5-4 win over Houston Astros...

It was Stephen Strasburg and Dallas Keuchel on the hill in a good old-fashioned Texas showdown on Thursday night. Neither of their starts ended up mattering, as it turned out. On a night that was supposed to be about starting pitching, the early innings of the game were all but forgotten as the new members of the Washington Nationals’ bullpen finally combined to blow a lead. Stephen Strasburg and Dallas Keuchel both dazzled with brilliant starts during Thursday night’s clash between the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros, with Strasburg outdueling Keuchel by a hair, if only due to...

Washington Nationals’ lineup for series finale with Houston Astros in Minute Maid Park...

Washington and Houston split the first two games of this week’s three-game set in Minute Maid Park, now they settle things with Stephen Strasburg on the mound against Dallas Keuchel tonight. Tanner Roark and the Washington Nationals’ relief corps managed to keep the Houston Astros in the yard in the series opener on Tuesday night, with all three runs allowed on RBI singles, but in the second game of three, the major league leaders in home runs hit three out of the park. A.J. Hinch’s Astros added six runs to their major league-best 708 runs scored on the season on Wednesday night, so...

Washington Nationals drop 6-1 decision to Houston Astros... in what was a tight game most of the night

Washington Nationals drop 6-1 decision to Houston Astros... in what was a tight game most of the night

Edwin Jackson put together another solid start, but Mike Fiers outdueled the Nationals’ right-hander in what ended up a 6-1 win for the Astros. Coming into the second game of the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals’ three-game set in Minute Maid Park, the AL West and NL East division leaders were ranked first and second, respectively, in runs scored in the majors, but just like the first game of the series last night, this one was a tightly-contested, low-scoring affair for the most part... though it ended with the home team on top, 6-1. Edwin Jackson’s defense cost him one of the...

Washington Nationals’ lineup for second of three with Houston Astros in Minute Maid Park...

Washington and Houston played a tight contest in the series opener last night, and the Nationals and Astros go at it again tonight in Minute Maid Park. Howie Kendrick’s two-out, two-run triple in the third inning and Matt Wieters’ two-out, two-run home run in the fourth inning last night in Minute Maid Park provided all the offense the Washington Nationals needed in their 4-3 win over the Houston Astros. Tanner Roark gave up three runs early, the bullpen held the Astros off the board, and the offense struck twice with two big hits powering an important win for Dusty Baker’s...

Tanner Roark gave up three runs early, but the Nationals battled back and their bullpen locked down the series opening, 4-3 win over the Astros in Minute Maid Park. Tanner Roark gave up three runs early, one in each of the first three innings, but then settled in and retired the last ten Houston Astros’ hitters he faced as the Nationals got back in the game with a two-run triple by Howie Kendrick in the top of the third and took the lead on a two-run home run to center by Matt Wieters in the fourth that put Washington up 4-3 in Minute Maid Park. Oliver Perez and Joe Blanton got the...

Washington Nationals’ lineup for series opener with Houston Astros in Minute Maid Park...

Washington and Houston start a three-game set in Minute Maid Park tonight at 8:10 PM EDT. Here is the Nationals’ lineup for the series opener... Houston is 76-48 on the season with a 12.0-game lead in the AL West heading into this week’s three-game set with the Washington Nationals, who arrive in Minute Maid Park with a 74-48 record and a 14.0-game lead in the NL East. Both teams lead their respective divisions, but each team is dealing with numerous injury issues as the series gets underway. A.J. Hinch’s Astros are just 7-12 in August, but the manager told reporters he thinks that...
