Recapping some of the good things the Astros are doing against the Red Sox in the first four innings.

The Astros are attempting to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Red Sox here's some of the things they're doing.

1st Inning

Five hole hitter, wait, let me repeat that again FIVE HOLE HITTER drives in the Astros first run with a single to center scoring Jason Castro from second. Castro reached base via the walk and advanced to second after a Carlos Pena walk.

2nd Inning

Jason Castro throws out Jacob Ellsbury attempting to steal second. It was Ellsbury first time being thrown out in 12 attempts.

4th Inning

Bud Norris gives up a single down the right field line to Mike Napoli. Jose Altuve failed to make the sliding catch for the out but the ball bounced right to Rick Ankiel who threw out Napoli trying to stretch the single into a double.

Aside from the one run in the first the Astros offense isn't doing much against Red Sox starter John Lackey.
