5 Houston Astros Chosen for All-Star Game
When you have the best winning percentage in Major League Baseball, you must be doing something right. The Houston Astros are heading into the All-Star break with that going for them, and five players will be on the field representing the American League in to tomorrow night’s game.
Carlos Correa, George Springer, Jose Altuve, Dallas Keuchel and Lance McCullers Jr. have all made the team this year, although Keuchel won’t be active for the game, but relief pitcher Chris Devenski has been added to the roster.
Meanwhile, the Astros haven’t slowed down much leading up to the All-Star game, pummeling the Toronto Blue Jays 19-1 yesterday marking their 60th win of the season.
Carlos Correa hit 2 homers and brought in 5 runs, a career high.
This win which was #60 on the season also happens to be only the 5th time in 40 years that a team has hit the 60-win mark before the All-Star break.
