Rough game last night. Starter Framber Valdez got bombed, the Astros got shut out, and Alex Bregman got injured. He will not be in the lineup tonight.
Cy Sneed was one silver lining last night. He replaced Valdez with five innings of one-run ball. Great work.
But tonight’s a new night. If anyone can put the Astros back on track it’s tonight’s starter Gerrit Cole, red-hot Gerrit Cole I should say. He will be opposed by the Rangers’ Jesse Chavez.
Currently the Astros have a seven game lead over Oakland in the AL West, eight games over the Rangers.
