McHugh looking sharp today, 3 K's in the first 4 hitters he faced. That is good to see!

Nice to see Bregman get his first hit of the season(solo HR) as well, and very good news to hear Correa is feeling great and expected back tomorrow.

Go Astros!

Disappointing series, not sure why they always seem to struggle when they go to Tampa.

Good news is we got the Rangers up next, that's always a recipe for getting on a roll.

Sorry Otis, wherever you are.

What a crazy ass game and a totally fitting way to end it, lol...Altuve with the 4-pitch bases loaded walk off win!

Good. Times.

Now it's the Rockets turn.

Three sweeps in a row! Good times.

Great pitching this series against a really good lineup on the road, and it's always nice to do it against division opponents.

Damn...McHugh has pitched pretty damn well tonight(and really well all season outside of his last start) but the 3 solo HR's are annoying!

Good game though so far.

As awesome as he is, Verlander is giving up a scary amount of HR's so far this year...

I'm ready for the AS break and the second half of the season, been a tough stretch lately(despite the awesome walk-off win last night). Enough with the injuries already!

It will be fun to see what moves Luhnow and Co. will inevitably make. I haven't given much thought so far on any specific potential targets(I keep seeing Stroman and Scherzer being mentioned), but the obvious areas of need would be another solid arm in both the rotation and the bullpen, and I fully hope/expect they'll get that done.

And the first run scored in this ASG(yawn) is by the Killer B's of the Astros!

Brantley and Bregman, well done good sirs.
