- The Astros turned 3 double plays, for the third time this season. They're 1 - 2 when doing so. They've not turned four in a game.
- The Angels turned none, and the Astros thus had a three DP advantage of their opponent for the second time this year. The first time they beat the Cardinals; this time, they lost.
- Last night was the 25th time this year the Astros had 10 hits in a game; they are now 13 - 12 in those games.
- Historically, two players before Chone "M-----F----" Figgins were able to notch as many as six hits in one game against the Astros. They were Edgardo Alfonzo for the Mets on August 30, 1999 and Andres Galarraga for the Rockies on July 3, 1995.
- Galarraga had homered twice, and Alfonzo had homered three times: the Astros gave up more than ten runs in both games, and lost them both.
- 38 players have notched five-hit games against the Astros, most recently by Mark Reynolds of the D-Backs earlier this year.
By way of comparison, only one Astro has six hits in a game. That was Joe Morgan, who went 6 for 6 with 2 homers and a double in a twelve-inning game on July 8, 1965. 30 Astros have five-hit games, most recently Geoff Blum, of all people, on April 19, 2003.
