Houston Takes Three of Four from Toronto Over the Weekend
The Houston Astros took the series win on Sunday as they took three of four games against the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday as they won yesterday’s game by a final score of 6-1. Scott Feldman was on the mound for Houston and had one of his best games of the season. Feldman recorded just two strikeouts and allowed eight hits, but he appears to be back to the form that made him the Astros’ ace in April. He earned the win as he went all nine innings last night while walking just two Blue Jay batters and improving his record to 5-8 on the year.
Offensively for Houston, they were able to take advantage when they got some runners in scoring position as they scratched out six runs in the win. Chris Carter and Matt Dominguez lead the way as they both had two RBI’s in the win.
The Astros are now 11-11 in their last 22 games which is their best stretch since late May into June. They also are a full 10 games better than their pace through 112 contests last season along with being 3 1/2 games clear of the American League West cellar, where the in-state rival Texas Rangers reside. They have today off as they prepare for a mid-week series against the Philadelphia Phillies starting on Tuesday.
