George Springer returned to the Astros lineup on Wednesday. He opened the game with a single and all was right with the world for a moment.
The Astros then processed to get only one run over the next nine innings in a 7-1 loss to the White Sox on Wednesday night in Chicago.
The Pale Hose one again roughed out the Astros starting pitcher, touching up Collin McHugh for seven runs over 5 1⁄3 innings.
The fielding had a few embarrassing moments. The Astros let a fly ball drop in the infield in the third inning, but thankfully McHugh made the heads up play and covered to get Adam Engel being too aggressive attempting to get a triple of the infield fly.
Derek Fisher misplayed a ball that led to a ground-rule double and the White Sox lead growing to 4-0 after five innings. Fisher would make up for it in the seventh inning with a running catch in the seventh.
Fisher would also get the Astros only run with a solo shot in the ninth inning. Alex Bregman also extended his extra-base hitting streak with a double in the ninth inning with a double.
