Final Score: Pirates 6, Astros 0

Record: 50-32, first in the AL West.

Winning pitcher: Joe Musgrove (6-7) 4.27 ERA

Losing pitcher: Brad Peacock (6-6) 4.13 ERA


The Astros looked to bounce back from their 14-2 loss last night in the rubber match against The Pirates. Peacock was pulled after giving up six runs in just three innings of work. Much like yesterday, The Astros offense had to start from behind and could never catch up. With today's loss, The Astros have now lost three series in a row.


On to the next one: The Astros start a three game weekend series against their division rivals, The Seattle Mariners. Wade Miley (6-4, 3.51 ERA) makes the start for the Astros. The Mariners have not announced their starter.

After Yordan Alvarez suffered an injury on Thursday from colliding into Jeremy Peña in short left field, many fans and media are questioning whether Alvarez should DH exclusively to keep injuries like this from happening.

While this may prevent injuries from happening in left field, there are numerous ways of getting hurt, such as running the bases, and we saw Alvarez miss some time recently with a hand injury from swinging the bat.

Plus, playing Yordan in left where he's at least an average outfielder, allows veterans like Michael Brantley and Jose Altuve to slide in the DH spot to get some much-needed rest over the course of the season. And there's an argument being made that Yordan is better at the plate when he's playing the field.
