Ross: Astros have MVPs all over their lineup (1:05)

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Blue Jays announce that Vlad Guerrero Jr. suffered a left hand contusion; X-rays were negative for fracture. The Blue Jays' third baseman was hit on the left hand by a Gerrit Cole fastball in the first inning of the game in Houston. He was taken out of the game in the second inning; replaced at third base by Eric Sogard.


Verlander K's career-best 15 but Astros lose

Mike Moustakas hit a two-run homer during Milwaukee's three-run 14th inning, and the Brewers struck out 15 times against Houston ace Justin Verlander before rallying for a 6-3 victory over the Astros on Wednesday night.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Justin Verlander's weird, crazy, awesome season continues as he strikes out a career-high 15 batters in seven innings. But he also gives up three more home runs and gets a no-decision. He's allowed 17 home runs ... but somehow only 28 runs, as batters are hitting just .152 off him. The lowest mark by a starter over a full season: Pedro Martinez's .167 average in 2000.

Rookie Alvarez homers again as Astros beat Brewers 10-8

Rookie Yordan Alvarez hit one of Houston's four home runs to become the first player in franchise history to homer in his first two major league games and lead the Astros to a 10-8 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

I believe the Astros have found their solution at DH. Yordan Alvarez homered again in his second game, making him the first player in Astros history to homer in his first two games. The 21-year-old Cuban had hit .343/.443/.772 at Triple-A with 23 home runs in 56 games. I don't think he needs to worry returning to Round Rock.
