The Houston Astros Offense Continues to Struggle as they Lose 5-0 to the Tampa Bay Rays

The Houston Astros offense has been anything but productive this season.  As a team they are third to last in the MLB in runs scored with roughly 3.7 runs a game.  They also are sitting second to last in total hits for the year as they have just 732 in 94 games.  The offense stayed true to form as they were unable to score in their 5-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays last night.

Rays starter Chris Archer was able to throw a complete game shutout while giving up just five hits.  Houston’s starter Erik Bedard on the other hand went five innings giving up just two runs and had six strikeouts but with no run support he was awarded the loss.

With the end of this series, the Astros have reached a much needed All-Star break.  They sit dead last in the MLB with a record of 33-61 and are 22.5 games behind division leader Oakland.

The All-Star festivities begin tonight with the State Farm Homerun Derby tonight at 7:00 pm on ESPN.  The All-Star game is scheduled for Tuesday night with first pitch set for 7:00 pm on FOX from the New York Mets ballpark Citi Field.
