The Houston Astros vs. Minnesota Twins series recap is not going to be the most fun recap you’ve ever read if you’re an Astros fan. Houston dropped another series to a team that they should be beating, and the pitching staff doesn’t look as stellar as it has in the last six seasons. But, boy, do I have a surprise for y’all, it’s April. These are the same Houston Astros that we’ve seen throughout the Golden Age.

This is par for the course. Astros fans freak out about how this team starts in April every single year, and every single year the Astros are one of the last four teams standing at the end of October. Everyone needs to R-E-L-A-X.

The first two games of the Minnesota Twins series ended in losses. Friday’s game was a 2-3 loss where Alex Bregman and Mauricio Dubón were the only Astros to drive in any runs. They ended up losing in the 11th inning, no biggie, move onto the next game.

Saturday’s game proved that the Astros are still going to be a problem when they get down early. They have the ability to turn a game upside down with one swing of the bat. They were down 0-4, and who else but Yordan Alvarez hit a screamer of a grand slam over the strange right field fence at Target Field.

Ultimately, the Astros lost the game 6-9 (nice), and lost the series. Again, it’s April, there’s no need to panic.

Sunday’s game was the third day game of a three game series, and the Astros left little room for the Twins to win this game. Chas McCormick, my starting center fielder, hit a two run homer in the third inning to take the lead. The Astros never gave the lead up and ended up winning the final game of the series 5-1. Chas had four RBIs, and surely has solidified himself as the every day starting center fielder.

Hunter Brown had a HUGE start after going seven IP with seven strikeouts. His control was significantly better than his first start of the season, and Big Game Hunter appears to be just fine.

The Astros will hop on a plane now and head to Pittsburgh for a three game set against the Pirates at one of the best ballparks in the league. This is a great opportunity for both struggling pitchers and hitters to gather some confidence and propel them into a strong April. Everyone relax. The Astros are just fine.
