The Houston Astros offense is know for one thing: power and lots of it. The Astros showed off that power on Saturday as the team played the Milwaukee Brewers. Colby Rasmus and Tyler White flexed their muscles against Brewers' starter Wily Peralta.

Rasmus connected for his first home of the season and the game in the third inning. He clocked a first-pitch fastball over the right field fence.

He added his second home run in the fifth inning. Ramsus got the green light on a 3-0 count and an 84-mph changeup a projected 460-plus feet.

Tyler White joined the party with a back-to-back home run. White saw two straight fastballs from Peralta, he had the second one perfectly timed as he blasted to dead center of the Brewer's batter's eye.

Not a bad day's work for the Astros highest paid player in 2016 and a rookie.
