As we're seeing positive signs from the Astros, a familiar adversary is once again making noise
This past weekend against the Angels was a good one for the Astros. First off, Lance McCullers was looking like his old self Friday night. He threw 105 pitches over 7 innings with 6 K, allowing just 4 hits and walking 1. Yeah, he let up a home run to Mike Trout and a double to Shohei Ohtani. But seeing Lance pitch deep into a game was a welcome sign.
Second? Yordan Alvarez hit 2 doubles and a home run over the weekend. Maybe he's returning to the form we saw him at earlier this year. Whatever the case, the Angels walked him a couple times on Sunday. But up in the PNW, the Seattle Mariners took 2 of 3 from the defending World Champion Atlanta Braves, a team that beat the 'Stros last year and gave them trouble this year. Is this a team that worries you come playoff time?
