Astros Vs. Pirates: Houston Shut Out 2-0 In 8th Straight Loss

The Astros bats were silent as the losing streak reach eight games with a 2-0 loss to the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Thursday.

Bud Norris allowed the two earned runs on five hits over seven innings and picked up the loss without any help. The Astros offense recorded just four singles, left five on base and went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position.

Pittsburgh's first run came on a double in the second inning, while the second run came on a sac fly.

Houston was led at the plate by Jed Lowrie, who went 1-for-3 with a walk. The eight-game losing streak is a season-high. The last seven losses have come on the road, where Houston is 9-32. The good news is that the Astros now head home for a three-game series against the Brewers (before another lengthy road trip).
