The Astros get their first day off in almost three weeks on Thursday. The way things have been going though Houston might rather stay in Seattle and keep playing.
The Astros swept their final series of the season against the Mariners with a 5-1 victory on Wednesday night at Safeco Field. The Astros head back to Houston after a 4-3 swing through Oakland and Seattle marking just their second winning road trip of the season.
After starting the road swing by winning just one of four games against the A’s Houston torched the Mariners by scoring 25 runs in the series and knocking out a total of 36 hits.
“You come into a series and you want to win the series” manager Bo Porter said. “You put yourself in a position winning the first two games and having an opportunity to sweep and I felt like the guys really responded well.”
As they had the previous night the Astros put Wednesday’s game out of reach early. Matt Dominguez started the action with a double in the second and he scored on a ...

Well if the Seattle Mariners‘ series against the Houston Astros wasn’t disappointing, I don’t know what is. Playing host to the last-place Astros in what was the conclusion of their second-to-last home series of the year, the Mariners dropped three games in disgusting fashion, all but sending the rest of those fans who were still tuned into the club away...
