One bright spot: The Astros’ defense leads the league in double plays, with 40.
That’s far more than the number of runs the Tigers scored against them in tonight’s game (17). So there’s that.
The Astros now stand at 8-23 on the season. That’s a winning percentage of .250. For the morbidly fascinated, that projects to a season total of 41 wins (rounded up) and 121 losses, which would just edge out the loss total of Marv Throneberry’s 1962 Mets.
