The Astros open their first weekend home opener at Minute Maid this Friday evening and their promotions department is all revved up for Friday's street festival. But before we give those details Jerome Solomon of the Houston Chronicle summed up their performance after Monday's first game with the Rangers. José Altuvé is hitting Valentine's Day: .214. Alex Bregman is hitting a bingo number: O-67. Carlos Correa is hitting Blutarsky's GPA. (Hey, put the decimal point anywhere you want, zero is zero.) But at least he has the legitimate excuse of having played in just one game.
What is going on with Aledmys Diaz? Not only did he finish his first regular-season series with the Astros with almost all zeros across the board — zero hits, zero walks, zero RBIs — he has struck out four times.
Amazingly, he has committed only two errors, officially. That must be an error. I'm pretty sure he botched four plays in the first two games. So, time to panic?
Astros Hitting Drought Continues. Lose Series and Game 3 in Arlington 4-0
The Astros came into Arlington facing a pitching staff which, in its first three games, had surrendered 28 runs. Facing the Rangers’ four and five starters the Astros could only muster 6 runs. Tonight, going against Mike Minor and several so-so relievers, they could not score a single run, even though the same Mike Minor allowed six runs in four innings on Opening Day.
The Astros have scored 15 runs in seven games. They came into this game with a .237 BA, but only a .100 average with RISP. Tonight they only got two runners into scoring position, and stranded both.
Their record is now 2 and 5. The last time the Astros started a season that poorly was 2013.
Now here are the details about Friday's street fest before the first ball at Minute Maid.
