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!
