Astros Vs. Mets: Chris Johnson Has Two Home Runs, Six RBIs So Far

Houston Astros third baseman Chris Johnson is having himself a career day.

The Astros currently lead the Mets in the eighth inning 8-1, and it's largely thanks to Johnson. Johnson is 4-4 so far, with two home runs and six runs batted in so far.

Johnson started early, belting a three-run home run off of Mets starter Chris Schwindin in the bottom of the second, plating Jed Lowrie and Brian Bogusevic.

Johnson's second blast was a two-run home run the very next inning, once again off of Schwindin, and once again scoring Lowrie.

Though it didn't come with a homer, Johnson added his sixth RBI of the game in the fifth, when he singled off of Manny Acosta, once again scoring Lowrie.

Johnson had another chance in the seventh inning to hit his third home run of the game, but instead singled. With the Astros up by seven, it's unlikely that Johnson will get another at-bat in the game -- unless Houston bats around in the eighth.
