The Astros won their 10th game in a row on Sunday, completing the sweep of the Texas Rangers. Houston is now 25 games over .500 at 41-16, which puts them on pace for 116 wins.
That’s a significant number because it matches the 2001 Seattle Mariners’ record for regular season wins in the modern era. The pace is significant but certainly not sustainable for this Houston team.
The Astros can come close to scoring with that Seattle team but the pitching isn’t quite there. George Springer hit another leadoff home run on Sunday and added his 16th of the season in the fourth inning.
Mike Fiers is coming off two runs in six innings against the Twins last week. He walked three and struck out eight in a start that was just about as good as any he’s made this season.
Kansas City Royals
Kansas City played better in the last three weeks or so in May but only marginally. What the Royals really did was tread water, essentially, and are still seven games under .500 a month later into the season. I doubt the Royals will ever get over .500 from here on out.
Ian Kennedy has a 5.12 ERA in nine starts this season but his peripherals suggest that number is inflated. He has a WHIP of 1.23 and is holding opponents to a batting average under .200.
Then there are the 14 runs he’s allowed in the 10 innings he’s pitched since returning from the Disabled List two weeks ago. He’s a tough one to figure out.
