They stink. Stink really bad. If you are letting them get 3 runs in 6 innings, you had a bad night.
The Houston Astros have scored more runs this year than: The San Diego Padres, the Oakland Athletics, the Chicago Cubs and the Miami Marlins. They have scored within 24 runs (or less than a .22 run per game difference/a difference so small to be of no statistical significance in any given matchup) of the Orioles, Rays, Royals, Pirates, Giants & Dodgers. That is ten of the 30 Major League teams that apparently stink... stink very bad... and are "AAA" lineups.
By the way, the Astros home OPS is almost 90 points higher than their away OPS. More importantly, their per game runs scored is 4.2 at home (and 3.5 on the road)... so according to the actual statistics this year, when playing at home the astros lineup is in the middle third of MLB.
I do not see how giving up three runs to this team should be considered "unacceptable".
