How 3 unlikely Astros players are doing heavy-lifting for Houston

UNSUNG HEROES

The Houston Astros have won four straight series and they're getting significant contributions from all over the roster.

Three under the radar names that really jump off the page and have been responsible for this recent run include Hunter Brown, Jake Meyers, and Martin Maldonado.

Meyers and Maldonado are swinging hot bats and playing their best ball of the season. Maldonado's batting average is finally up to .200 on the year. That may not sound like much, but it's a big deal for Maldy.

So, despite some struggles from Jose Abreu and Alex Bregman, the team is finding ways to score enough runs and win ballgames.

Plus, we react to the latest injury update for Lance McCullers and project a realistic outlook for his 2023 season.

The Houston Astros are finally firing on all cylinders, winning nine of their last eleven games. They now trail the first-place Mariners by only four games as they prepare to play the Angels this week at Minute Maid Park.

What's going right?

Now that the Astros starting pitching is healthy, the club has been stacking up wins, with Kyle Tucker leading the offense along with Jeremy Pena and Jake Myers.

Can they keep it up?

Even if Tucker tails off a bit, hopefully that will coincide with Yordan Alvarez getting hot and the offense overall not skipping a beat.

Be sure to watch the video above as we discuss the Astros winning ways, and what we should expect from the team in the short and long-term.
