From the Office of the County Clerk - G19: Astros @ Mets

Hey, at least the Astros were 2-1 on a road series. Astros lose to the Mets 9-1.

*Coming into this series, the Astros were 1-5 on the road. At least they leave with a 3-6 road record.

*The Mets scored nine runs on eight hits. The last time an opponent scored 9+ runs on fewer than nine hits against the Astros was September 30, 2009, when the Phillies scored ten runs on nine hits and six walks.

*I still think there's something not right with Happ. Dude went 4.2IP, 6H/6ER, 5K:2BB, WP. That said, he got the first seven batters he faced before giving up the solo shot to catcher Mike Nickeas - his first career HR.

*Happ was just what David Wright needed. After coming into the game on a 16AB hitless streak, Wright homered and doubled off Happ. He's now 6x11 with two doubles and three home runs against Happ for a .545/.636/2.125 slash line. You read that slugging percentage right.

*It's Happ's second disaster start in four games.

*Except for Jose Reyes and Angel Pagan, every Met starter had a hit.

*Carlos Lee was 0x3 with a walk. He now has one XBH in his last 47 PAs, and is hitless in his last ten ABs.

*Brett Wallace got himself a hit - a double off the lefty Capuano. That's his 4th hit off a lefty this season, and his second XBH. He had six XBHs against LHPs in 2010.

*Man of the Match: Michael Bourn - 1x3 with a walk.

*Goat of the Game: JA Happ!
