August: 6-19

Longest win streak: 3 games (July 22-25)
Longest losing streak: 6 games, twice (June 23-July 1, August 19-25)

Team batting statistics:
.231/.317/.316, 253 RS, 10 HR, 482K:181BB, 46/71 SB/CS (64.7%)

Team pitching:
18-38 (obviously), 4.84 ERA/1.53 WHIP (both league-worsts), 21 HR allowed, 377K:203BB

Soon enough we'll go player by player through the Astros' minor-league organization, with splits and stats. But not today. There's 4th-place to win.
