Some interesting Astros stats

Here are some interesting stats from Astros-land, prior to Sunday:

  • Astros pitchers are first in the NL with a .346 batting average (9-for-26).
  • Astros pinch-hitters are hitting .308, which is tied for third in the NL.
  • Jeff Keppinger’s .533 batting average againast left-handers ranks second in the NL.
  • The Astros’ bullpen had thrown 11 consecutive scoreless innings entering Sunday.
  • Astros starters have posted a 2.81 ERA in the last nine games. The Astros are 7-3 in those games.
  • Lance Berkman’s first home run of the season will tie him with Reggie Smith for fifth-place all-time for switch-hitters. He has 313 homers.
  • The Astros are 6-2 when scoring four or more runs, and 1-8 when scoring three or fewer.
  • Four of the Astros’ five starting pitchers are from their own farm system: Bud Norris, Roy Oswalt, Felipe Paulino and Wandy Rodriguez. The only one that’s not is Brett Myers, who signed a free agent before this season.

Here’s one for you. Assuming he plays in all remaining games, Michael Bourn is currently on pace for a .435 OBP, 104 runs, 104 walks, 76 stolen bases and 47 outfield assists. It’s not likely to hold up, but 47 outfield assists would break the 129-year-old record of 45 set by Hardy Richardson in 1881. THAT is how incredible Mike has been so far.
