Houston Astros Leave the Cellar of AL West
With all the hype about how great the Houston Astros are going to be this year, the early season struggles were disappointing, to say the least but, maybe they're turning a corner after a couple of wins moved them out of last place in the division.
George Springer had 4 RBIs powering the 'stros to an 8-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks yesterday, moving the team up to 3rd place in the AL West, behind Seattle and Texas.
Naturally, it's too soon to call it anything more than a 4-game win streak but, they could be getting hot at just the right time with the All-Star break just a month away, and the team not far from playing .500 ball.
You can't blame a guy for being optimistic, can you?
