The Houston Astros took another loss Tuesday night as they fell 11-4 at the hands of the Detroit Tigers.  Houston starter Brett Oberholtzer had a rough outing as he gave up four earned runs on nine hits while going six innings in the loss.  The bullpen struggled as well in this game as they gave up seven runs in relief.  The Astros’ bullpen, considered to be one of the team’s strengths coming into the season, has a Major League-high 6.24 ERA, including a 12.27 mark over 11 innings in the team’s last four games.

“When you look at, it’s a 4-1 ballgame, and their bullpen comes in and pretty much keeps the game right there until the last inning when we were able to score some runs,” Porter said. “Our bullpen was not able to keep the game right there. If our bullpen is able to keep the game right there, obviously it’s a different ballgame. We’re not able to do that, and they were able to get all the tack-on runs they got to put the game somewhat out of reach.”

Houston will continue their four game mid-week series with Detroit today as they try and snap the four game losing streak they are currently on.  First pitch for tonight’s game is set for 7pm and you can hear all the action on Sports Radio 1340 the FAN.
