The new additions to the Astros line-up gave some punch with Vazquez singling his first two at bats in the no. 9 Spots, as they tagged the Yankees for 25 hits in two games. The Astros went 8-3 in their last 2 series.
The results are from the free Statis-Pro baseball game using the 2022 Batters cards, 2022 Pitcher cards from Arizona to Miami, and 2022 Pitcher cards from Milwaukee to Washington. When you see the term "sweep" in these accounts, it refers to our league rule that a team that wins a game in which they led by at least 5 runs without using their reliever with the best PB (2-9 is best, then 2-8, 2-7, 4-7, 2-6, 2-5 and the worst is 2-4). In our records, a SWEEP gives the team credit for 3 wins and 0 losses, while any other win is 2 games to 1.
However, the Astros are the hottest team in the league, and after starting in 10th place have rallied to be in the playoffs for the first time if the season ended today.
The Astros would now be 5th and play the 4th place Twins, with the winner advancing to play the same Yankees, who fell to 2nd with the loss.
