From the Office of the County Clerk: G70 - Astros v. Indians

Yes, and, well, the Astros lost 2-0 to the Indians in the first game of this inter-league series.

*After starting the season 18-14 at home, they've lost three of their last four games at home.

*In their last three games, the Astros have scored three runs. Even "better," they've allowed six runs in their last three games - and are 0-3.

*The last time they had scored one run in three games was August 12-14, 2011 - when the Astros scored one run in between two shutouts against the Dodgers.

*In their last 25 games, the Astros are 6-19.

*Ubaldo Jimenez became the 13th starting pitcher to post a Game Score of 70+. And hey, what do you know, the Astros struck out 12 times! That's 14 times in 19 June games that the Astros have struck out 10+ times.

*Lucas Harrell threw 7IP, 2H/1ER, 9K:3BB, for a 75 Game Score - 2nd-highest by the Astros this season. Harrell has the 2nd and 3rd-highest Game Scores of the year by the team.

*The two hits Harrell allowed are a career-best, as are the 9Ks.

*Altuve hit in the lead-off position for the 21st time this season, and though he went 0x4, his OPS in lead-off is still .847 (it's .757 in the #2-hole). That said, Altuve has one hit in his last 13 ABs.

*Altuve has gone hit-less in just 19 of his starts this season. When he doesn't get a hit, the Astros are 6-13.

*The top five in the lineup (Altuve, Schafer, Lowrie, Lee, Martinez) went for a combined 0x17 with 10K:3BB.

*Chris Johnson was 2x4 - both of them singles. It's been since June 7 - 46PAs - since Johnson got an extra-base hit. It's been 140PAs since he hit a homer.

*I've had about enough of this, so...

*Man of the Match: Lucas Harrell

*Goat of the Game: Everybody else.
