The Houston Astros didn't have the kind of start to the series against the Washington Nationals they were hoping for, losing 6-3 on Monday, but the second of the four-game series could turn out to be a bit different for the team. Of course, this won't be Stephen Strasburg's home debut.
Be sure to read Tuesday's Three Astros Things at the Crawfish Boxes blog. Part of what the blog hits on is that Houston is going to have to get used to playing on the road in the upcoming weeks.
"Houston is in the midst of a 13-game road trip in the next 16 total games. That's a seven-gamer and a six-gamer broken up with three games against a hot L.A. Dodgers team at MMP. Houston is 4-6 through its first 10 games." - David Coleman
