Carter continues torrid run as Astros rally past Athletics

Those who follow the Astros online may have seen Chris Carter called “Trogdor” at some point. It’s a reference to an online animated cartoon series, Homestar Runner, and a dragon by that name that does what one expects of a dragon: breathe fire and destroy things. The nickname dates to Carter’s time with the Oakland Athletics at the start of his career, but has taken on...

Carter double dips to lead Astros to series win over Angels

Merrily heading back to the clubhouse Wednesday night, interim Astros manager Tom Lawless spun toward the conference room door and joyfully declared, “I’m going to Disney World.” That trite line is usually referred for champions, not clubs with the modest goal of ending their three-year streak of 100-loss seasons. But the words hardly seemed odd flowing freely from Lawless’...

Houston's Carter quietly contending for HR title

HOUSTON (AP) When strangers approach Chris Carter, he's ready for the question. His reply is usually something like: ''No, I don't play for the Houston Texans.''

Jose Altuve’s four-hit day paces Astros’ comeback win over Rangers

Jose Altuve should be the one to send the Astros into September with a four-hit game and a 3-2 win over the Rangers. The season’s final month will see Chris Carter chase 40 home runs and the Astros grasp for 70 wins, but neither mark would match the buzz of a batting title for Altuve, or his 211th hit of the year — the record-setter that should come with time to spare. September...

Carter’s three-run blast caps Astros’ comeback

Chris Carter’s a relatively emotionless slugger, a trait that can bring him at times some undue criticism, suggestions he might not care. A slow exit from the batter’s box in the eighth inning was deserved flare Tuesday night. He crushed a 439-foot, go-ahead homer to left field as far as Minute Maid Park’s enclosed roof would allow in a 4-2 Astros win over the A’s. If anything...

Carter’s double dip leads Astros past Twins

Chris Carter doesn’t say very much. Even though he’s playful and smiles and laughs often, he measures his words and speaks softer than any other Astro. But as Domingo Santana agonized through a miserable start to his career, the hottest slugger in the majors made his biggest point with a simple stat – 0-for-33. That’s how long it took Carter to get his first hit in the...
