Yep. Time for the Astros to put up or shut up. And with the inconsistency I've seen in the Rangers so far this season, I sense a lot of "put up" from your heroes.

My team sucks.

What are the odds this game ends as a one-run win for Texas? Pretty sure I've seen that before.

Let's Go Astros!

The Astros came from down a run to take a four run lead against the Rangers? With some lucky breaks helping them along? All while the Rockets completely dominated the Spurs on the road in the first half?

What the hell, am I alive or just forgot that I died?

What's the record for most home runs given up by a pitcher in a season?

Fiers will be there before June at this rate.

What's the record for most HR's and Strikeouts in one game by one team? I have a candidate.











Oh - our bullpen sucks.

That was a weird game. I was shocked to see Fiers go six after the four HR's. Feast or famine type game.

And of course even with a three run lead in the 9th they have to make it interesting. Can't ever be easy. Someone just needs to tell Gregerson it's only the 8th inning when he comes in to close it out.

Was nice to see them once again come from behind though, fun team to watch.

That sucks. I genuinely mean that, but also selfishly as a rival who wants to beat you guys at full strength.

;)

Maybe this will cheer you up as you crack open another ice cold Shiner:

You can go ahead and take the boot now, @RaoulDuke79

Your revenge for last season is well underway.

Didn't get to catch the game today, probably a good thing looking at the score, but I'm just happy winning 3 out of 4. Beating the Rangers has been the biggest hurdle for the Astros in recent years.

Still, it's only the first of many meetings between them. I still don't have much confidence in beating ya'll on a regular basis, so don't give up quite yet!
