2008 - Astros release pitcher Shawn Chacon a day after he grabbed General Manager Ed Wade by the throat and threw him to the floor in a pre-game altercation. Chacon had become increasingly defiant after getting yanked in the first inning of a start in Milwaukee then later getting dropped from the starting rotation. On the field, the news was better in a 7-2 win over the Texas Rangers but a sour month had left the club in fifth place, five games below .500 at 37-42.
1995 - Orlando Miller smacks a three-run shot and drives in five as Houston buries the Cardinals, 11-0. Greg Swindell hurls the complete game shutout, coasting to victory after his teammates tally ten runs in the first two frames. Luis Gonzalez adds three hits and drives in three.
1988 - Catcher Craig Biggio makes his major league debut in a 6-0 whitewash of San Francisco. He walks in the fourth and scores the game's final run after stealing second. Houston does all its damage on just three hits, aided by six walks. Jim Deshaies and Larry Andersen combine to blank the Giants on seven hits. Biggio will get his first hit three days later against Dodger ace Orel Hershiser.
1972 - The first five Astro hits in San Diego are all homers - two solo shots by Doug Rader , two-run blasts by Jim Wynn and Cesar Cedeno and a round-tripper by Lee May which ties a club record . All that does is create a 7-7 tie. Wynn doubles home Cedeno in the seventh and Houston tallies six more times for a 14-7 victory. Cedeno has three hits and four RBIs. George Culver pitches 7-1/3rd innings of relief for the win.
1968 - Dave Giusti gives up first-inning singles to Chicago's Don Kessinger and Glenn Beckert then goes the rest of the game without allowing a hit for a 2-1 triumph. He also provides the game-winner, singling in Bob Watson. Jim Wynn's solo homer off Bill Hands is the other Houston run.

Houston Astros recap - 06/25/17 - Bullpen Locks Down M's, Take Series
Bullpen Locks Down M's, Take Series
Martes Gets Quick Hook But Astros Rally

Correa teases Sideshow Bob (Gurriel)

Houston scored four in the fourth to take the lead in Seattle then added four more in the ninth to complete an 8-2 victory Sunday, concluding a 6-1 West Coast road trip. After rookie Francis Martes had trouble locating the plate the first two innings, manager A.J. Hinch got out the hook and put his bullpen to work as he has so often this season.

Four relievers covered the last seven frames and limited Seattle to just three hits, two of the them in the ninth off Luke Gregerson who wriggled out of a bases-loaded jam to end it. Michael Feliz was credited with the win although Chris Devenski and Will Harris could have taken the honor as well.

George Springer got the offense started with his 22nd home run of the year in the fourth - a laser to deadaway center field that left the yard with urgency. Still in the fourth, Carlos Correa drilled an opposite-field double to the base of the fence that plated Jose Altuve and tied the game.

Ariel Miranda's day got worse when Yuli Gurriel blasted a two-run shot into the upper deck in left for a 4-2 Houston advantage. The bullpen doggedly held that lead until the offense put it out of reach in the ninth.

Evan Gattis cranked a two-run bomb into the upper deck off lefty James Pazos. Two outs later, Springer and Altuve both drew bases-loaded walks to plate the final two runs.

The Astros will take a well-deserved day off Monday before returning to action Tuesday at home against the just-swept Oakland A's. Houston will see lefty Sean Manaea (6-4) again in the 7:10 Central opener as he battles Mike Fiers (5-2) who has been the anchor of the patchwork rotation.

In other news, it appears staff ace Dallas Keuchel is going to continue to rest until after the All-Star Break. There's no timetable to get him back on the mound and, with Houston's big lead in the division, no need to rush his return. Could you imagine back in March what Astros fans would say if they were told they wouldn't have Keuchel for a month and wouldn't have Collin McHugh for the first half of the season but that they'd be sporting baseball's best record? It's been a miracle ride.
