“The Marisnick homer was huge I thought, it breathed live back into us,” Evan Gattis said. “Just glad to come out of this one with a win and give us some momentum going into Seattle and try and win the series there.”
“We never really solved his ability to change speed on all of his pitches,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said of Jason Vargas.
“It’s unfortunate that he had what looks like a setback,” A.J. Hinch said.

The Astros along with moving the fence in added more fan friendly experiences to the ballpark. Shake Shack and Torchy’s Tacos are the two big national chains that will be at Minute Maid this season, along with a place buy some wine and cheese, yes seriously.
“(James Harden) made plays down the stretch and we weren’t able to make them,” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said summing up the game.
