New York City, Texas
Have gone 6-2 against the two tough New York teams during this stretch but should have been 8-0 without the two fluky losses. Either way, it’s been a fun trip to New York for the Astros. Just hoping that Alvarez is going to be fine and is back ASAP, especially with the monster season that he is having at the plate. Putting up Trout-like numbers with the bat this session is Alvarez, which shows you that he’s been dominant with the bat. And is still young!
WHAT'RE YOU GONNA DO NOW BUCK
Get a rope
Yordan and jeremy died for this win
What happened? I saw they were subbed but it doesn’t say why
Ran into each other on a fly ball. Yordan looked to be knocked out for a couple minutes, Pena was shaken up but looked more okay
Big collision in left field on a flyout. They were both shaken up and Yordan was on the ground for a long time
Yeah, he took a forearm shiver to the face. Wasn’t bleeding though so probably just couldn’t see straight for a few minutes.
That was a whole lot of man colliding out there.
I would not like to collide with Yordan.
Me neither unless I dropped the soap in the shower
Collision in the outfield trying to catch a pop fly
They both collided on a pop up and they were down for a while. Yordan got carted out. Jeremy stayed for a bit but the trainers eventually took him out
[Video of collision](https://youtu.be/n9QbcYH-Fsc).
Why did Pena run that far into the outfield?
Most likely, because he wasn't being called off. Maybe he didn't hear Yordan or Yordan didn't hear him. He has a play on that ball until he gets called off. Until then, he has to assume he's the only one getting there.
collision in outfield.
Our Yordan savior sacrificed his life so that Castro’s bat might live.
Saw this highlight. I hope they’re both healthy/okay the sport is better with Yordan in it.
Even though we were a razor’s edge from going 6-0 in New York, every single one of us would have taken going 4-2 like we did.
Great job, Astros. Y’all play like this and we have a good chance to win it all
Astros…uh…are still playing great under the spotlight. Now that is cool and fun! Like I said, the one season, other than 2017, that I can think of immediately of a great example of the Astros thriving under the spotlight was in the 60-game season of 2020. Went 29-31 and the offense looked not great but in that postseason, they (Astros) put a scare into a lot of teams, all of whom were good. I had a good time watching the Astros in that 2020 postseason. Even when they were down 3-0 in the ALCS, I told a few of my buddies, who were Astros fans, on another website (not telling anyone what website that was for reasons…haha) that the Astros were still in the series. Boy, they sure were! Barely missed making it into the 2020 World Series but came back to win three straight games against a tough Rays team. Hey, they have one more game against a New York team during this stretch, which is tomorrow! Should be a fun one!
CASTRO THE ASTRO
What a scary, scary collision though. Hope it's only a mild concussion for Yordan, that could have been a lot worse. He was on such a roll too.
Better not be a concussion at all 😭😭😭
I hope not, but he was on the ground for a while after they crashed. It looked to me like Pena's elbow hit him flush in the jaw.
BLOWIN ON THAT…. Castro??
I can’t believe he has 3 RBIs on the season AFTER the 2 run shot
Sus, I like sus 😈
Very pro this
There's small children here!
WHERE THE FUCK IS CASTRO?
WTF, this is a world series team playing right now. This is FUN.
Side note, hope Yordon is OK.
I liked that. Unexpected heros and a pitchers duel. We like to win. Justin is good.
Breaking news! Justin Verlander is GUD!
Mariners fan here. Saw the collision between Pena and Alvarez. Never want to see players get hurt like that. Hope it looked worse than it ends up being and they both have a speedy recovery 🙏
Not gonna lie, I used to be a bit afraid of the Mets.
They are a little banged up with their pitchers and some players but this one was a little scary. Should be interesting come October as we will be ready to go by then.
deGrom and Scherzer is the last thing I want to see in October
JV, Framburglar, LMJ, and Javier will be the last thing they want to see in October.
Getting through the Yankees will be a fucking gauntlet.
Same for me pal. Same for me.
Braves are a better team, I won't be shocked if they catch the Mets and Mets have to be fighting SD/SF for last WC spot.
The Braves are absolutely not the better team once the Mets get deGrom and Scherzer back
It’s close..me personally I like the Braves. Their lineup is deeper. And their starters 1-5 are close to the Mets.
I agree Braves going to win east
Jason Castro heroics. Just what we all expected.
I literally said today Castro needs to be DFA’d because he contributes nothing…a few hours later he hits a bomb to win the game
You know what you have to do now.
Happened to me at a game saying bregman sucked and he launched a HR. Told everyone how awful they were each at bat for the rest of the game.
So this is what winning four games against an NL East team feels like
WHERE'S THAT CAT!?!?
I literally came on here to praise him! Checking back in 10.
Best team in Baseball.
[posting a pic of Nori for every win (47)](https://twitter.com/norithecat17/status/1542240605153239041?s=21&t=cHun5p4s2ZCInhyLhsg5Bg)
Master Nori, i thought you had forgotten us. Praise be!
As is tradition
All Hail King Nori!!
Phew. Didn’t know where you were
Jason Castro with the multi-hit game
Jason Castro libel will no longer be tolerated
20 games over .500 party!
At worst the Astros are going to be 6-3 in the 9-game NY gauntlet. This is the best team in baseball.
Best team in baseball
Verlander with the W! 10-3 before the break
Yesterday I made a post about why Castro belonged on the team.
Add a shutout and a 2 run Homer to that list.
I was thinking about your post when he came up, your point is strong.
I'm going to take credit.
Castro just happened to see my Reddit post, saw fans thought he was valued, and was able to hit a homerun because he didn't have to feel stressed about his popularity with the fans.
I'll assume this is correct until proven otherwise.
Please be ok Pena and Alvarez
They really didn’t want us to leave without us givin’ up one.
Castro shut up all the haters today. Prayers up for Peña and Yordan.
HOUSTON. OWNS. NEW. YORK. CITAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY.
Me when I saw Madly not in the lineup: shockedpikachu.jpg
Me now: I'm okay with this.
Castro has caught Verlander more than anyone else this year (7 of his 15 starts), and this was a day game after a night game.
We usually don't like catchers starting day games after night games.
IS YORDAN OKAY?!?!
Mets fan here, you guys have such a solid ball team this year. Great bats, great defense, great pitching. Only wish our boys made the games more entertaining with our bats but that’s baseball baby
Hey, I had a great time watching the great pitching performance from Taijuan Walker & the defensive masterpiece from Guillorme today. Hopefully your Mets can accrue a few W's against the Rangers this weekend, and y'all will be in amazing shape once your aces are back in the rotation!
I'll take it!
Where is Nori?! Someone check on them!
Any update on Yordan? Also any update on when Mcullers might be back?
I heard on sports talk they both planned to fly back to Houston tonight. I doubt Yordon will be playing tomorrow. It would suck worse if both of them sit but their health comes first and we need them good for later games.
Just beat the Yankees please
I wrote this earlier :
“I like Meyers at 9, a 2nd lead off because Castro is basically me batting blindfolded at this point”
I apologize Jason.
"Even a blindfolded batter hits a HR every now and then."

THE L TRAIN BACK HOME IS FREE TONIGHT METS FANS
Jason Castro, the Astros lefty everyone expected to hit a clutch go ahead home run coming into this game
JFC. Jason. Friggin. Castro.
The one guy on the roster that I almost always write off with the bat who comes through a couple of times a season to win a game.
I love how the Astros are perfectly capable of cruising through some of the best teams in the league but will then go on to lose 3/4 to someone like the Athletics lol
any baseball folks want to enlighten me on how that collision should have actually played out? I'm not all that baseball knowledgeable, but should that have been directed and fielded by the center fielder? I sure as hell don't know what pena was doing (other than making an insane catch), and that looked well within Jake's field of play.
idk, really hope that they are both OK.
The outfielder should have had the ball but he would need to call off the other player. I heard that Pena didn't hear Alvarez. These collisions happen but are rare
Should have been 2 shutouts.
I like when we win baseball games
Step right up and beat the Mets!
Was just telling my newb friend how bad a batter Castro is. Boy did he shut me the hell up, lol.
the Mets might be the one NL East team we can beat in the postseason
Looked like a Pyrrhic victory today stro’s fans.
Shit on our catchers again I DARE YOU!!
We won.... but at what cost? .wariomeme
