Astros Late Offense Beats Yankees 7-4

The Astros find themselves right across the street from baseball's hallowed ground, facing the Yankees in the final series between these two teams this season. These teams are quite a study in contrast. The Astros have the youngest average age in the Major Leagues, while the Yankees are the oldest. The Astros have a bunch of kids that have been brought up through the system...

Rangers blow lead in eighth as Astros take win

HOUSTON - Any good feelings the Texas Rangers had after leaving Chicago with a two-game winning streak left when the Astros snatched the lead in the eight inning and didn't look back as they took the 4-3 win at Minute Maid Park on Friday night.

Rangers-Astros Preview

It's likely going to be another losing season for the Houston Astros, but the stunning free fall of the Texas Rangers has provided them an opportunity to be the best team in the Lone Star State this year and a possible escape from the AL West cellar.

Her son hit his first home run in more than two months, breaking a long stalemate with the A’s in a 3-2 win for the Astros that lasted 12 innings. “It’s a really good feeling,” said L.J., who had a great diving catch in the seventh inning. “Especially cause it was my mom’s birthday...

MLB Game Picks - Wednesday: July 23, 2014

Despite both extra-inning games going fourteen innings and still going my way, it was not a good picking day for the old guy here. A lot of underdogs won including the Cubs and Astros.

Castro’s most productive at-bat in Astros win over Red Sox wasn’t a hit

Recalled to the majors for the third time this season, Astros lefthander Brett Oberholtzer didn’t bother taking a flight from Class AAA Oklahoma City. He packed his possessions into his silver 2011 Chevy Tahoe and hit the road even though he’s not guaranteed to remain on the Astros’ roster. Oberholtzer began the seven-hour trip to Houston by popping in the self-help audio...

Series Preview: Angels vs. Astros vs. Tweaks

As is often the case with series preview (or in the past, game previews), I am changing the format a bit. I don’t have a great reason other than boredom. Once the Angels play a team for the third or fourth time in a season, there isn’t much new to say based on the old format, so I’m making some minor tweaks to allow myself a little more license. There will probably be more...

Villar breaks out of slump as Astros claim seventh straight with win over Orioles

When the Astros can make not one, but two base running mistakes in one inning; when they can take the lead in that same inning and suffer none for their errors later, you have as sure a sign yet that this club’s fortunes have changed. Even the best teams need a little luck, an occasional reprieve, and this is a franchise that’s been starving for some breaks — even deserving...

Astros must adjust to six-man rotation

The Astros informed the starters that they’ll go with a six-man rotation for one more turn. The move became obvious once lefthander Brett Oberholtzer threw a bullpen session Tuesday, essentially removing himself from consideration to pitch out of the bullpen the next few days. Brad Peacock, who will start Thursday, bounced back well from the bullpen session he threw Monday. He...

Springer double dips, Oberholtzer has fun again as Astros roll past Mariners

In the moment, you had to think it was serious. You couldn’t look at George Springer’s limp, the teammates gathering around him in the dugout, and believe the right hip injury he suffered Wednesday in Anaheim would allow him to return any tim soon. “It scared me,” manager Bo Porter said. “It looked much worse than the actual diagnosis. … At first I thought it was his...
