From the Office of the County Clerk - ST13: Astros v. Mets

So the Astros dropped to 3-10 today, losing 7-2 to the Mets.

Notably, J.D. Martinez and Matt Downs both hit homers today. For Martinez, that was his first of the Spring, while Downs connected on his second homer.

Angel Sanchez had your lone multi-hit game of the season, going 2x4 with a double.

Ryan Rowland-Smith got your start, throwing 3IP, allowing 1H/2ER, 1K:3BB, and a homer to Josh Thole.

Jordan Lyles allowed 5H/2ER in 3IP, with 2K:0BB; Fernando Abad gave up 2H/2ER in 1IP, and Enerio Del Rosario stays earned-runless with 1H/1R (0ER), 1K:1BB.

Notably, or not, Brian Esposito was 0x2 (and a CS on Josh Thole) while Carlos Corporan was 0x1 with a K. Towles didn't play.

Three of the Astros' six hits were for extra-bases, while the Astros struck out eight times (two from Clemens, one each from Wallace, Locke, Corporan, Gaston, Downs, and Esposito), and didn't draw a walk.

Lyles struck out Jason Bay and Lucas Duda in the 4th for his first two Ks of the Spring.
