Houston Astros Live Game Feed – Game 2 vs. Rangers
While the debut of CTH’s Houston Astros’ live game feed was during a game that we lost 7-5 to the Texas Rangers, the participation from the CTH readers was excellent for round one. The purpose for this is to be able to interact with our readers who do not normally participate on Twitter and also to give each reader the opportunity to read everyone’s responses. On Twitter, you will not see people’s response unless you follow them.
The Rangers took an early three-run lead in the first inning versus Scott Feldman and never looked back. The Astros scored two runs in the second inning by hitting three doubles in a row. George Springer and Jose Altuve chipped at the lead late in the game with home runs, but the Astros made mistakes all around last night in the loss.
The Astros face a tough pitcher today in Cole Hamels, who has a 4-3 career record versus the Astros with a 4.97 ERA. He, like Derek Holland last night, is a lefthander which will remove some of the left-handed hitters from the Astros lineup. Colby Rasmus and Jason Castro stay in, but Preston Tucker and Luis Valbuena take a seat. Doug Fister makes his third start with the Astros.
