Miller was brought in as a blazing speedster who can flip the game at the drop of a dime, but for whatever reason, the long run’s he’s been accustomed to busting in the past.
The Texans had the best defense in the league last season, and that was without Watt, a ton of sacks, or turnovers. They did lose some big pieces through free agency, but it’s hard to think they can’t be as good or even better next season.
It was tough luck all around for the Astros, they had plenty of hits, 12 in total, but in key spots would come up empty handed, leaving 18 on the bases.
Correa on the season is batting .321 to go with 20 home runs and 66 RBI’s.
With Morton through five innings, the bullpen took over and was able to keep the Twins off the scoreboard.
“These guy’s here I’m sure are going to support us, and I’m sure we are going to support them,” Chris Paul said about wearing the Astros jersey before his pitch.
Over the past five years, the Rockets have been in on some of the biggest free agents in the game and one of the biggest reasons was because Harden is on the team.
No Astros made the final vote, but through injuries and players pulling out the game there is still a chance the best team in baseball can add an another all-star or two.
The Astros shortstop on the game would drive in four of the team’s six runs.
“With James Harden in prime and Chris Paul in his prime, this gives us a real shot to chase the juggernaut team’s that are out there,” general manager Daryl Morey said.
