Well would you look at that. The Houston Astros have won back to back series, and are starting to win games that they most definitely should be winning. The pitching staff is starting to round into a form that we’re more familiar with, and the offense is doing just enough to snag some wins. Jose Altuve is looming, and I’d expect the offense to take off once the captain is back.
The mustache legend J.P. France shoved during game one Friday night. He threw 6.2 innings, allowed just three hits, one walk, one earned run, and tallied three strikeouts. France could just be yet another pitching gem found in the Astros organization, just as we all expected.
Friday night, the bullpen was perfect through 2.1 innings with no walks allowed, and no hits allowed. That’s what we all love seeing from the Houston Astros bullpen, and the offense did it’s job to extend the lead in the ninth inning.
Game two was a bit of a dud. The offense had eight hits, but only one run to show for their efforts. The timely hitting wasn’t there, and when Brandon Bielak gives you five innings and only one run, the offense has got to capitalize on any opportunity given to them. The Astros lost game two of the series 3-1, and similar to the series in Anaheim, the team had a rubber match on Sunday afternoon.
Hunter Brown took the rubber for Mother’s Day, and seemed like he was going to get through six innings until he gave up a three run homer to let the White Sox make it a one run game. He threw 5.2 innings, but had eight strikeouts opposed to his only walk. Brown is a stud and he just didn’t have enough juice left to get through six innings.
The bullpen once again kept the White Sox hitless in their outing Sunday afternoon, and the defense helped out on their end. Chas McCormick made an incredible diving catch for the 27th out of the game. It’s becoming a normal occurrence that Chas makes a great diving catch to save games.
The Astros won game three of the series 4-3, and now have back to back series wins with Jose Altuve nearing his return to the lineup. The Houston Astros are headed back home for a six game homestand against the Chicago Cubs and the Oakland Athletics.
