    first career grand slam for Chris Johnson in the 1st inning. Launched it over the Crawford boxes. 4-1 stros early on.

    Lowrie makes it 8-2 after his double was reviewed and shown to hit off the rail just above the yellow line in left field. Sure sounded like it hit off the wall.



    8-2 the final score. 5 straight wins!

    I'm a bit surprised as you are, but very very happy about it.

    THIS THREAD NEEDS UPDATING!!!!!
    As of this AM (Sunday, May 6, 2012) the 'Stros are 13-14 and on a 5 game win streak. Just swept the Mets and have already won the series vs the damn Cardinals. Altuve and Lawrie are CLEARLY the best combo of SS/2b in all of MLB (defense & offense combined) and the team is hitting very well. Home runs are starting to happen, too. The pitching is quite a bit better...and the 2012 Astros are easily the 'most improved team in MLB', so far. I sure hope they maintain this improvement and they really do seem capable of doing so. GO 'STROS!

    OMT...
    Lawrie's 4th homerun clearly hit the dark green metal railing which is about a foot above the 'yellow line', then bounced onto the field. I don't know how much umpires are paid, but at least one of them was overpaid yesterday. They shouldn't of had to use TV replay to know it was a homerun. However, at least they did get it right....eventually.
    SWEEP THE CARDS TODAY!

    dude, we have played 1/6 of the season. Lowrie has all of 77 at-bats...

    Derek Jeter and Robbie Cano says hi.

    Definitely agree with Hambone about the sample size, but even if you expand it to the Astros infield,

    Altuve -- .346 avg., .918 OPS
    Lowrie -- .338 avg., .979 OPS
    Johnson -- .306 avg, .813 OPS
    Lee -- .280 avg, .737 OPS
    -----------------------------------
    Average -- .318 avg, .862 OPS

    That is one of the best offensively performing infields in the majors so far, if not the best. The Yankees have the names, and will eventually pass Houston, but their four are averaging .284 avg, .773 OPS right now.

    Well, I guess enough Austinites complained, because the Astros are now the main MLB team in Austin again on Time Warner. The Rangers are on the alternate channel 77 and the Astros are on the main HD station 1639.

    We lived in Austin from 1989-2001, then Waco from 2001-2003. Had been in Uvalde (85 miles west of San Antonio) from 1986-1989. During that 18 years stretch we simply could not watch the Astros on ANY channel! It was hard on us, too, for we'd been driving to Houston from Waco to watch 'em starting in 1965...then lived fifty miles from the 'Dome from 1969-1986. We moved to central Arkansas in 2003 and have been able to watch nearly every game since then. Go figure. I have honest-to-gosh feelings that the 2012 Astros will continue to be competitive all season. GO ASTROS!

    Quite a negative from Mr. Positive I'd say.

    It was hard to find positives out of that game. Bogeys catch was a great web gem though. Also having to listen to cocky cards fans was annoying.

    Myers closes out the win after Bogusevic made it 3-2 with a pinch hit double in the bottom of the 8th. Nice.

    Seeing this team hover around .500 is something different.

    Nice comeback for a 3-2 Astros victory, and a chance for a series win tomorrow. 8 saves for the closer, Brett Myers, this season.
