Scoring 7 runs against the Astros and not winning is like eating 7 burritos and not taking a massive dump immediately thereafter. It starts out all well and good, but ultimately you’re left feeling sick with the knowledge that the shit is going to hit the fan (and possibly the ceiling) at some point in the near future.
The last time the Astros scored 12 or more runs was August of last year. They scored just 13 in their last four games combined. I could go on. The Astros are not good. And today, they destroyed the Cubs.
To keep things par for the course, Alfonso Soriano left early with a strained quad. More on that later.
