Catching up with some former Astros

With only two weeks remaining in the regular season, I thought it might be a good time to take a look at how some of our old friends are doing. A couple of former Astros were in the news this weekend, so let’s start with them.

Hunter Pence

The former Astro had a huge game last night as the Giants pummeled the Dodgers 19-3. Hunter went 3 for 5 with a career high seven RBIs. His Grand Slam to straight-away centerfield was his 23rd homer of the season. Pence has put together a solid season in San Francisco, playing in all 149 games, posting a .293/.343/.488 slash line, driving in 89 runs, and scoring 84 times.

When the defending World Series Champs fell out of contention early this summer there was talk that perhaps Pence would be traded. That obviously didn’t happen and more recent rumors have the Giants attempting to re-sign Pence before he becomes a Free Agent this offseason.
