Altuve getting old? Fuggedaboutit.
Did you see him score from third on a pop-up to the infield last night?
Yesterday was treacherous territory for the Astros, what with Cristian Javier starting after only three innings of work in Spring Training. But his first three innings were perfect, although he faltered in the fourth.
Still, the Astros piled on again in late innings, and won easily, 9-5. Brantley is crushing it, but Kyle Tucker put the nail in the coffin last night with a two-run single in the ninth.
Today it’s Lance McCullers going for the Stros, who looked positively dominant in the Spring. His mound opponent is Cole Irvin.
