I mean where do I even begin? Another day another dick slappin. And the offense just makes me ERECT.
The 2021 Astros offense has taken all the power of the boos and only generated a BILLION runs in the opening series of the year. Look, I understand this isn’t sustainable but to come out of the gates this hot, against a rival in the division; well you couldn’t dream of a more perfect start.
The offense put up another 9 runs on the board today and it all got started with FUTURE ALL STAR Kyle Tucker.
The party kept going offensively with the prodigal sons return and a 2 run TANK in his first at bat back as an Astro.
That is all the Astros ever really needed as Oakland just tucked their tails between their legs and said welp here we go again, but the offense said “hey look at me I am the captain” And decided to put more and more runs on the poor A’s. Yuli stayed hot with another RBI Double and the Rookie starting in his first game got a BOOMBAH.
Jose Urquidy looked average today and couldn’t get 5 innings but with the offense carrying the pitching staff currently it allows the guys to get their reps in and get that pitch count geared up. Brandon Bielak is pitching with confidence for the first time in a long time and came in and did what you want out of your pen in a blowout and that is throw strikes.
The Stros head to LA to take on the Angels on Monday/Tuesday before they head back home for the Home opener on Thursday. We at Apollo will be at PITCH 25 at 3PM to start the pregame early. Catch us there!
