We’re well past the point of caring too much about a one-run victory over the Houston Astros, other than the fact it halts a six-game Mariners losing streak. Beating the Astros, now 44-89 on the year, is hardly a big deal to most teams. Even the Mariners, who won their 60th tonight to jump to 60-73.
But the fact there was hardly anybody at the ballpark — the laughable 22,203 “paid” figure notwithstanding — shows just how little interest there is in the Astros right now, or in this series between teams with the two worst run differentials in the AL.
Still, we did see some other items that could rate as interesting if they are followed up with a degree of consistency.
