The second game against the Nationals didn’t go well either.

MLB: Spring Training-Washington Nationals at Houston Astros Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Nothing went right for the Astros on Thursday. Starter Brad Peacock gave up five runs on five hits over three innings in a 13-1 loss to the Nationals at The Ballpark at the Palm Beaches. The first game for the Astros to host their fellow tenants at their new Spring Training home.

Cy Sneed struggled as well, he too gave up five runs on five hits over 1 13 innings.

The Astros offense wasn’t much better. Houston put together 10 hits but couldn’t push across more than a run.

The one spot bright spot came at the top of the order. George Springer (three-for-three) and Alex Bregman (2-for-3) each had multiple hits in the game. Springer hit a double of Nats starter.

The Astros’ lone run came in the bottom of the ninth inning. Tyler White connected for hit first home run of the spring.

The Astros return to First Data Field to take on the Mets on Friday.
