Houston keeps winning. Keuchel is the first one in the majors to five wins.

The Astros continue to be hot. Two victories in a row over the Rangers, including last night's thrilling comeback win. Two more games with them to go in this series.

By the way, Keuchel just got awarded as the American League pitcher of the month for April. That's four times he's won it.

Astros beat Atlanta again and got the two-game sweep. This officially makes the best start in franchise history at 23-11.

Three out of four against the Yankees. They seem to be winning multiple ways. Defense and pitching in the first game. A bunch of home runs in the last game. And they are having fun while playing. Best start ever... We will see if they can keep it up...

It's all thanks to an improved batting lineup, DRob. That offseason turned out to be the right thing to do. Baseball's best record right now.

The Astros are picking themselves back up with a new 2-game win streak against Detroit. Great game pitched by McCullers on Tuesday.

Keuchel and McCann have been on the DL but both will be expected back this coming weekend.

Houston continues to roll. They got the sweep of the Orioles with an 8-4 victory. It's now on to Minnesota against the Twins.

Speaking of the Birds, how about this incident from last night's game? An uninvited guest interrupts the proceedings at Minute Maid.

And one of the Orioles' outfielders subsequently tried to shoo him away and promptly got booed by Astros fans.

Monday's game against the Twins presented an interesting statistic. Prior to that game, the Astros were 0-659 in games in which they trailed by six or more runs going into the eighth inning. That's pretty remarkable for 55 years. Well, on Monday, that changed. They were down by 6 runs against Minnesota and scored 11 runs in that eighth inning, and they wound up winning that game, 16-8.

So, they are now 1-659 in games in which they trailed by six or more runs entering the 8th inning.
