For what seems like the first time this Spring Training, The Astros showed some life in the offense with Q and Pence slappin dingers (gross?) in an 8-6 loss to the Nat's. Pence went 3-4, Q had two ribbie's, hit a bomb and Erstad knocked in two. Things may be looking up for the team, with signs that the offense has a pulse, the pitchers could get some much needed run support.
The Astros return to Kissimmee, Fla., on Tuesday to play the Braves at 12:05 p.m. CT. Houston right-hander Brian Moehler will face Atlanta right-hander Derek Lowe.
Oh my, D-Lowe is gonna murder the lineup today, just a hunch, sure hope I get proved wrong.
