The Blue Jays (25-43) visit Minute Maid Park for a three-game series against the Houston Astros (46-23).

The Astros are first in the A.L. West division, 9.5 games ahead of their second-place rivals the Texas Rangers.

The Astros sport the second-best batting average in the majors ó .265.  They also are third in OBP (.340), and carry the third-best ERA (3.52).
Not to mention they are fourth in HRs (110), and first in the WHIP category (1.08).
They have given up the fewest strikeouts but they among the leaders for the base-on-balls category. 

While the Minnesota Twins have the best w/l record in the A.L., the Astros are second-best, over the third-best Yankees.  Actually, to put it another way, Houston is tied with the Dodgers for the second-best overall major league w/l record.

Lots of accolades for the Astros here, eh?

The Blue Jays won their most recent series against the Baltimore Orioles taking two out of three.  Their bats came alive in the last two wins of that series.  A relief no doubt for both the team and itís fans who were beginning to think that the Jays offence went splat.  At least they showed that yes, they do have firepower...and how!

A .219 BA is among the worst in the league and not something to crow about, no, not at all.  It has become disgraceful and pathetic to watch this struggling team muster some runs for itís hard-working starting pitchers.

Well, letís hope that it is the start of something positive.

This series will feature the brothers ó Yuri Gurriel (Houston) and Lourdes Gurriel Jr., (Jays) ó who are both playing very well as of late with Lourdes hitting .348 in his last six games, and a role in the Jays offence.

GO JAYS GO!

Jays flunk out against the Astros 15-2.  Donít ask.

Concern of the night ó Vladdy hit by pitch (hand) but everything has been deemed okay (nothing broken) just a bruise:


Meanwhile, it was a nightmare outing for Jays starter Aaron Sanchez.  He lasted three innings and allowed eight runs.  Something definitely to forget.
