George Springer did George Springer things.

Are we there yet? The equipment truck is already heading back to Houston. The Astros have two more games left in Florida before they head to Corpus Christi. But before that George Springer did George Springer things.

Positives

  • Jose Altuve walked, stole second, moved to third on a wild pitch, and scored on a infield single from Evan Gattis. I repeat an INFIELD single from Gattis.
  • Jason Castro hit his third home run this spring.
  • Jake Marisnick doubled and scored on a Jose Altuve single.
  • George Springer robbed Chris Colabello of a home run and hit a home run of his own.
  • Joe Thatcher, Tyson Perez, Tony Sipp, Jordan Jankowski, and Luke Gregerson combined for 4.2 innings of scoreless baseball.

Negatives

  • Brett Oberholtzer returned to the mound after resting a strained lat muscle. Obe' gave up five runs on five hits and two walk - including three home runs.
  • Darin Downs gave two runs on four hits and walks through an inning of work.
  • Chris Carter was 0-for-4 with four strikeouts.
The Astros head to Disney World to play the Braves at 5:05 PM CT.
