The Astros have lost six of their last eight games. including three of their last four at home against the Twins. In the meantime, the second-place A’s have gotten to within two games of the Astros.
A combination of light hitting and weak starting pitching is responsible for the slide, but at least we’ve seen great improvement in the bullpen.
