A Reversal of Fortunes in Detroit (Plus Stats)

Comerica Park
Home of the Tigers
Detroit, Michigan

Astro*Notes

Friday the Astros won a game in Detroit they should’ve lost.

Saturday the Astros’ pen coughed up a game in Detroit they should’ve won.

Both games were winnable.

We need more of the former. And much less of the latter.

  1. Larry Dierker Says:

    Years ago the Brewers won their first twelve games or so an didn’t make the playoffs. A few years later, the Braves did the same, lost their lead near the end after taking Nokahoma’s tent down to add more seats. They did come back and win. The 2017 Astros will win their division, but they may have their hands-full in post season. I dreaded losing to lesser teams, knowing the tougher teams were coming, but the lesser teams all had big league players. The 98 Yankees the Astros are not.
