The Astros had a rough time in my kind of town, the city of broad shoulders, yeah, blasted Chicago. They lost two out of three, had to play a double header, and played three games in the last two days getting only 9.1 innings from their starters in those three games.Which means the bullpen heads to California EXHAUSTED.
Gerrit Cole did not appear for his scheduled start, complaining of hamstring discomfort, but reports at this time are that his injury is not severe.
Hopefully Aaron Sanchez can go deep against the A’s starter, our old friend, Mike Fiers.
The bats remain hot for the most part, Altuve, Bregman, Yuli and Correa all hitting well in the last series, although Yordan got only one hit. We’ll need your bats this weekend boys.
