MLB: Minnesota Twins at Houston Astros Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Houston started their road trip with a solid 11-4 victory against Alex Manoah and the Toronto Blue Jays, and have three more shots at the birds this week.

I know the run-distribution committee usually leaves the Astros hanging after they drop a 10-spot, but it was posited in yesterday’s game thread that due to the conversion rate, they were actually allotted 12 runs. Hopefully, that hypothesis holds up and Houston can continue to pile on.
