Astros Vs. Padres Final Score: Houston Defeats San Diego In Pitchers Duel, 1-0

The Houston Astros had a complete game shutout by Lucas Harrell to defeat the San Diego Padres 1-0 in a pitches dual. Harrell wasn't perfect along the way as he allowed six hits and walked four batters, but he did strike out seven batters.

The Padres had a near equally good performance from starter Clayton Richard who went seven innings allowed just two hits but the one run he allowed made the difference. That one run that made the difference came in the third inning when second baseman Matt Downs hit a solo home run off of Richard.

The Padres nearly got the best of Harrell in the ninth inning when Chase Headley singled to start the inning, and that gave the Padres had runners at first and second with one out. The second hit of the inning came on a Logan Forsythe single, and Alexi Amarista who came into pinch run headed for home on the Forsythe single. Astros left fielder J.D. Martinez was able to get the throw in time to catcher Chris Snyder who tagged out Amarista at home plate.

Harrell was not out of the woods yet as he walked Mark Kotsay to load the bases with two outs, but Harrell was able to strike out Nick Hundley to preserve the win.

Jose Altuve Injury Update: Hamstring Strain Not Considered Serious

Jose Altuve suffered a strained hamstring while running to first base in the Astros' win against the Cleveland Indians on Sunday. That's why he wasn't in the lineup against the Padres on Monday in the teams' series opener, in which Brian Bixler filled in respectably.

But it looks like Altuve's injury isn't that serious, and he will return to the lineup soon. He said it could be a couple of days, which means he might sit out the rest of the Padres series, which ends Thursday, or he could play in the finale. Either way, doesn't seem to be too much to worry about when it comes to the fan favorite Altuve.

Brad Mills said the team simply wants to be cautious with Altuve, who was able to take batting practice and ground balls on Monday.

Astros Vs. Padres: Carlos Quentin Double Drops Astros In 10th Inning

Carlos Quentin hit an RBI double off Brandon Lyon in the top of the 10th inning to give the San Diego Padres an 8-7 victory over the Houston Astros.

The game was tied at five through the first four innings, and in the bottom of the fifth Jed Lowrie hit an RBI double to put Houston up 6-5.

But three innings later the Padres grabbed the lead on a three-run home run from Jesus Guzman.

The back-and-forth affair continued in the bottom of the inning when Jason Castro tied the game on a home run for the Astros.

But Houston's resiliency was for naught as Quentin's double off Lyon won the game for Padres in the 10th inning.

The Astros will look to bounce back on Tuesday when Jordan Lyles (1-4, 5.04 ERA) takes on Kip Wells, who is making his first MLB appearance since 2009.

MLB Standings: At Least The Astros Are Not Last In NL Central

The situation could be a lot worse with the Astros but the rebuilding process is going smoothly so far. That's why being 9 1/2 games out of contention for first place of the division is OK in Houston, because Astros fans are just happy to see the team score runs and have decent outings on the mound.

The Astros have been doing that in their past couple of games, albeit against the Cleveland Indians, who managed to get outscored by more than any team in the American League aside from the Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals.

Perhaps if the Astros were in the AL Central, instead of heading to the AL West next year, they could rupture the competitive balance as we know it.

Check out the MLB standings right here.
