|Saturday, September 24th, 2022: Houston Shortstop Will Miss 4 Weeks|
Mike Moustakas had to leave the Astros game against Oakland after suffering a hyperextended knee while running the bases. He will be out of the lineup at least 4 weeks. He told SION reporters, "I just felt a sharp pain when it happened. I knew there was something wrong."
Moustakas has a .308 average and a .411 on-base percentage for the year. He has picked up 167 hits, 47 home runs and driven in 127 runs.
|Wednesday, August 31st, 2022: Houston's Gonzáles Down with Injury|
Medical officials from the Houston Astros reported that the club's 32-year-old second baseman, Jesús Gonzáles, suffered a strained bicep muscle in yesterday's matchup against the Chicago Cubs while throwing the ball. Gonzáles is expected to miss 2 weeks of action.
This year Gonzáles is batting .281 with 16 home runs and 84 RBIs.
|Sunday, August 21st, 2022: Hot Bat of Ramos Burns Padres|
Felipe Ramos told the press after his 5-hit day, "Every batter wants to have a quality at-bat every time he steps up to the plate. He wants to hit the ball hard."
Well, that's just what Ramos of the Houston Astros did against the San Diego Padres. He went to the plate 5 times and 5 times he delivered base hits, much to the chagrin of the Padres, who suffered a 21-4 defeat.
"Not much that I can say," offered the losing manager, "he just hammered the heck out of us."
F. Ramos doubled in the 1st, singled in the 2nd, singled in the 4th, hit an RBI single in the 5th, hit a two-run home run off D. Barnes in the 6th and walked in the 7th.
This season Ramos has hit at a .303 clip with 75 RBIs, 10 home runs and 122 runs scored. He has played in 116 games.
