I didn’t really think the Astros were gonna sweep the Phillies or anything but they should’ve won the first game at least.
It was the perfect storm. Solid pitching from Brett and he actually got some run support. The game was in hand till the 9th. Watching Lyon give up the lead almost brought me to tears. I got really mad instead.
Through out the series the Astros showed flashes of what they can do. Starting the season off going against the best pitchers in the game isn’t how you would like to start but almost beating DOC shows some improvement. The last two games of the series were not very close. The Astros were too out matched. It is what it is.
Tomorrow the Astros start a three game series with the Reds on the road. Opportunities for wins will be there. Volquez is pitching poorly so they need to take advantage. Lee and Pence need to start hammering balls, Bourn has to get on base and cause havoc with his speed.
It should be a good series.
