The Astros started well in their first game against Texas last weekend but faltered from there, dropping the final two in the series, low-lighted by a one-run, three-hit performance against Bartolo Colon and the Texas ‘pen.
Then the ‘Stros mustered only one run again on Monday night in the opener against Seattle, a 2–1 loss. It doesn’t seem possible that this lineup won’t hit so let’s chalk the recent struggles up to chance and chance alone. Alex Bregman is off to a cool .212 start with just one dinger.
No one on the club is having a finer start to the season than Gerritt Cole, who also happens to be in his first season with Houston. Cole has given up 10 hits in 21 innings, while striking out 36. He’s got a 1.29 ERA but just one win to show for it.
Perhaps the offense will bust out, both of its recent slump and for Cole, who hasn’t had the run support he likely expected when it was announced he was traded to Houston.
Seattle’s one-run win on Monday was the first in its last seven games against the Astros.
The M’s haven’t played the most difficult schedule in the league through the first couple weeks but they’ve handled their business, 9–5 and only behind the Angels in the AL West.
Robinson Cano is still hitting .341 but it’s been Mitch Haniger flexing the muscle early on, leading the club with four homers.
Mike Leake gets the ball on Wednesday. He’s been his usually steady self, leading the staff with a 3.50 ERA and 18 innings pitched in three starts.
