A note on Astros' blowouts

You have probably noticed the Astros have had the piss kicked out of them on occasion this season. Such as the Astros giving up 10+ runs eight times this season (1-7 in those games), and losing by these scores...

4/11: 11-2 loss @ StL
5/12: 12-1 loss @ COL
7/3: 13-0 loss @ SF
7/4: 9-0 loss @ SF
7/11: 13-2 loss vs. WAS

That's five losses by 9+ runs. Horrible. How does that stack up against the other 29 teams (with the worst loss in parentheses)...?

Also with 5 losses by 9+ runs:
Texas (15-2 @ Detroit)

4 losses by 9+ runs:
Los Angeles Angels...of Anaheim (17-3 vs. Chicago White Sox)
Oakland (14-1, twice)
Atlanta (12-0 vs. Arizona)
Minnesota (12-2 vs. Toronto)

3 losses by 9+ runs:
Cincinnati (22-1 @ Philadelphia)
Chicago White Sox (20-1 vs. Minnesota)
Baltimore (19-6 @ Texas)
Florida (15-2 vs. Tampa Bay)
Kansas City (13-1 vs. Detroit)
St. Louis (11-0 @ New York Mets)
Cleveland (13-3 @ Boston)

2 losses by 9+ runs:
New York Yankees (22-4 vs. Cleveland)
New York Mets (15-0 @ New York Yankees)
Boston (13-0 @ Tampa Bay)
Colorado (14-2 @ Los Angeles Dodgers)
Detroit (11-0 vs. New York Yankees)
Chicago Cubs (10-0 @ Arizona)
San Diego (12-2 @ Texas)
Tampa Bay (12-2 vs. Chicago White Sox)
Pittsburgh (11-1 vs. Atlanta)
San Francisco (11-1, twice)
Arizona (12-3 vs Los Angeles Angels)

1 loss by 9+ runs:
Seattle (11-0 @ Minnesota)
Philadelphia (11-1 @ Atlanta)
Washington (11-1 @ Baltimore)
Toronto (10-0 vs. Philadelphia)

0 losses by 9+ runs:
Milwaukee (11-3 @ Minnesota)
Los Angeles Dodgers (7-0 @ Chicago Cubs)

Well, at least Astros fans can take comfort in the fact that the only other team to get beat by 9+ runs five times was the Rangers. Ha ha!
