Those final six outs are apparently the hardest

...when you have a bullpen like the Astros. Thanks to Brian McCann's two homers, the Astros are 11-7 when leading after seven innings. Which may surprise you that it's actually that good, but to lose seven games in the final six outs - out of 42 - is unreal. Here's how other NL teams stack up when leading after seven:

Philadelphia: 19-0 (1.000)
Arizona: 12-0 (1.000)
San Diego: 10-0 (1.000)
Washington: 16-1 (.941)
New York: 15-1 (.938)
Los Angeles: 16-2 (.889)
San Francisco: 15-2 (.882)
Atlanta: 19-3 (.864)
St. Louis: 19-3 (.864)
Cincinnati: 18-3 (.857)
Colorado: 18-3 (.857)
Milwaukee: 17-3 (.850)
Chicago: 11-2 (.846)
Florida: 16-3 (.842)
Pittsburgh: 13-3 (.813)
Houston: 11-7 (.611)

Looking at that list is just soul crushing.
