Astros vs Braves series rap up
The Astros have rapped up there opening season home stand with a 3-3 record, and well with season we are in for it's not a bad way to start the season. Errors were again the Astros down fall in the loss to the Atlanta Braves. Wandy could not get out of the 4th inning last night giving up 3 runs on 2 errors in that inning alone. There is one point that is a little bit of good and bad news for all the Astros fans out there they left more than 8 batters on base last night, now the good is that they are getting on base alot and the bad is they haven't found a way to get these guys home. Most of the batters left on base were in scoring position and twice left the bases loaded, and not to mention that one of those times the bases were loaded with no outs.
If they can convert even a third of those base runners into runs this season might be a big surprise to us all. In short errors and stranded runners on base are the two major things the Astros must work on if they don't want to be last in this division...again. Root Root Root.
