It’s been a pattern all year. The bats disappear, and as soon aw we give up, the bats explode. The last two games the Astros bats have disappeared. Let’s hope tonight they break out and with any luck in Seattle the Astros can regain their 2.5 game lead over the A’s.

Flame throwing strikeout pitcher rookie Josh James makes his debut for the Stros tonight, replacing Charlie Morton in the rotation as Morton recovers from “shoulder discomfort.” His Angels opponent is Felix Pena.
