His rates of production per game against Houston are some of his highest against any team that he's consistently faced, although man, he's really teed off on the Twins, too. Keeping in mind Young is not a power player, these numbers against Houston are pretty damned good:
- 5 homers in 111 AB
- 40 hits, 20 runs scored in 28 games
- 13 RBI
Good news is that Young is 5 for 19 off Oswalt with 6 K's.
Teixeira 4 for 12 with two homers off Oswalt, Blalock is 2 for 13.
There's also the pregame ceremony honoring the 1986 team. According to the email I received, at least 15 members of that NL West Division-winning team were scheduled to be on hand, including Mike Scott, Bob Knepper, Nolan Ryan, Terry Puhl, Dickie Thon, Craig Reynolds, and you would very well imagine, Jim Deshaies.
