Yahoo - 8 hours 19 min ago

Preston Tucker's major league career is just over two weeks old, and already he's hit a pair of big home runs. Once I step into the box, I feel the same, but just the process of it is something I'm not really used to,'' Tucker said. ''That's pretty cool that I've been able to help us win.'' Tucker's three-run shot in the sixth inning Sunday tied the game, and the Houston Astros went on to a 10-8 victory over the Detroit Tigers.

The Astros are a joy, and dangerous

Major League Baseball - Mon, 2015-05-25 02:25
The Astros are an absolute joy to watch. That's surely one part of this season's sweetest and most improbable story. They have youth and energy, resilience and toughness. They have some confidence, too, growing day by day. Is there anything else? Yes, there is. They're a simple team in a lot of ways. They hit home runs in bunches and play very good defense and hold onto leads when they get them. Isn't that a formula for success right there?
