Astros Open Homestand With Loss


Los Angeles Dodgers v Houston Astros

The Astros are dropping the homestand-opening game 9-2 to the Dodgers. While the Astros expect the negative chants on the road, Houston probably was not expecting the Dodgers-heavy crowd at Minute Maid Park to boo them as they took the field. Alex Bregman homered in the seventh to avoid the shut out but the Astros were only able to add one run in the ninth on a fielder's choice. Houston aims to break its four-game skid and split the two-game series with Los Angeles tonight.
