Cristian Javier and the Astros Bullpen No-hit Yankees, Take Game Three, 3-0.

Jessica Alcheh-USA TODAY Sports The Astros staff slams the Sultans of Swing and Miss For the second time in history, the Astros combined staff no-hit the mighty New York Yankees, this time thanks to seven nearly perfect innings from Cristian Javier, a clutch hold despite bad umpire calls from Hector Neris, and a redemptive perfect inning save from closer Ryan Pressly. Against the best-hitting team in baseball, facing their hostile crowd for the first time in his career, young Astros starter Cristian Javier mowed down the mighty Bronx Bombers like a Weed Whacker.

Could Willson Contreras be the Next Astros Catcher?

Could Willson Contreras be the Next Astros Catcher?

Photo by Jamie Sabau/ The Astros could use the tried-and-true trade deadline to improve behind the plate this season. With All Star Weekend fast approaching, we need to keep our eyes on another important date on the calendar... It’s no big secret to say that the biggest need the Houston Astros have at the major league level is behind the plate. The duo of Jason Castro and Mártin Maldonado, while defensively sound, are both already 35-years-old. That’s not even to mention their combined .133/.216/.236 slash line. Clearly, both have seen better offensive seasons, but...

Verlander pitches gem, King Tuck provides big hit to lift Astros over Yankees

Verlander pitches gem, King Tuck provides big hit to lift Astros over Yankees

Photo by Mike Stobe/ Tucker’s three-run home run backs up Verlander’s solid pitching performance to tie the series. A week ago, Justin Verlander had a rough outing against the White Sox. But on Friday, he was on top of his game to dominate the Yankees at Yankee Stadium with seven strong innings and guide the Astros to a 3-1 victory. Kyle Tucker drove in the Astros’ three runs with a three-run home run against starter Luis Severino, who was clearly outpitched by veteran Verlander. In order to pick his ninth win of the campaign (9-3), Verlander allowed only four...

Where does Jake Meyers belong in the Astros’ lineup?

As Jake Meyers returns to the active roster, where can we see him in the Astros’ lineup? With Jake Meyers finishing his rehab assignment, the Houston Astros‘ lineup has a few questions remain. The biggest question is how long will he platoon until he takes over as the full-time center fielder?

In stinging loss to Yankees, Dusty Baker did not give Astros the best chance to win

In stinging loss to Yankees, Dusty Baker did not give Astros the best chance to win

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ Last night’s collapse in the Bronx wasn’t the Astros skipper’s fault, but his tactical incompetence late in the game left the door open for a Yankees comeback. Dusty Baker is not the reason why the Astros lost to the Yankees last night. But his late-game decision-making might have prevented an Astros win. The Astros entered the bottom of the ninth with a three-run lead, successfully handing the game to their All-Star closer. With a 2.41 ERA on the season, Ryan Pressly had converted 14 saves in 16 chances. He had allowed just one home run...

Yankees rob series opener off Astros’ hands with a late 3-run homer

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ New York scored four times against Ryan Pressly to walk off the Astros with an Aaron Judge single. Well, these games hurt badly. The Astros did everything they could to win the series opener at Yankee Stadium, but the Yankees struck first this time after snatching a 7-6 win off the Astros. Closer Ryan Pressly fell off the Earth and blew a three-run lead in the ninth as Aaron Hicks swatted the fourth three-run home run of the contest and Aaron Judge hit a walk-off single to end it. Until the ninth, it was a beautiful game for Houston. The Astros...

Let’s Give Seth Martinez Some Attention

Let’s Give Seth Martinez Some Attention

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Looking at the leaderboards, everyone can see that the Astros have one of the better bullpens in baseball. Perhaps among the best, depending on your metric of choice. There is plenty to like about this season’s staff. A significant component of that success is derived from the depth general manager James Click and his front office have accumulated in the past calendar year. One of those depth pieces — if you can even call him that for much longer considering his current success rate — is Seth Martinez, the 27-year-old right-hander...
