This will be the first time these former division rivals have played in over three years. Back then, the Astros were a rising force in the American League and the Pirates were, well, just about what they are now, just with some difference names on the uniforms.
Pittsburgh is coming on now, though, led by Brian Reynolds and Kevin Newman, who have teamed up with Josh Bell to provide the offense the “umph” it needed.
Colin Moran and Starling Marte have been steady this season, Marte when healthy. The guy they really need back now is Gregory Polanco, who has only played 42 games and doesn’t have a timetable for a recovery from more shoulder problems.
The Pirates don’t have enough as it is and they certainly can’t overcome the loss of one of their most talented players. In the meantime, Newman and Reynolds will try to help the Bucs to their fifth win in a row on Tuesday before this game on Wednesday.
Jose Altuve is back and finally had his first big game since returning with a home run in Sunday’s victory in New York.
So Houston’s seven-game losing streak is behind it and George Springer is set to return in this series, beginning on Tuesday.
Suddenly, the Astros are nearly healthy and they also managed to discover Yordan Alvarez when all the injuries hit at once. He’s homered seven times in 12 games, going into Tuesday.
