2019 - Justin Verlander wins his 20th game as the Astros celebrate their third consecutive AL West title in a 13-5 trouncing of Anaheim. George Springer smashes three homers to lead the offense. Alex Bregman and Aledmys Diaz also go deep.
2000 - Richard Hidalgo hits two home runs to give him a career-high 44 while the Astros set a National League mark for homers by one team (ending with 249). But Houston gives up six home runs, including three off Jose Lima who sets another league home run record (47) as Cincinnati wins, 12-5, at Cinergy Field.
1997 - Jeff Bagwell steals third base against Mike Remlinger of Cincinnati to become the first 30-30 (HRs, SBs) player in franchise history. Houston tops the Reds, 6-3. A four-run eighth is the difference, keyed by a two-run pinch single by Bill Spiers.
1969 - Third base coach Salty Parker sends Norm Miller home from third when he sees a white object fly away from Atlanta catcher Bob Didier after a pitch. The object turns out not to be the ball, but a finger cast the catcher was wearing on his glove hand. Miller is easily tagged out. The 5-3 loss creates an unhappy 23rd birthday for sore-armed Larry Dierker who broke in with the Colt .45s on his birthday five years earlier.
1963 - Joe Morgan delivers the winning hit in his second major league game, a pinch single with two outs in the ninth to nip the Phillies, 2-1. This prompts a tirade from Philadelphia skipper Gene Mauch who trashes the post-game meal after his squad let "a little leaguer" beat them.

Houston Astros recap - 09/22/23 - Home Field Sees Final Regular Season Test
Home Field Sees Final Regular Season Test

Dubon: Get a win, get a shower
(c) Karen Warren/Houston Chronicle
The Astros take a 39-39 home field record into the final home series of the year. After taking just one-of-three against Baltimore, Houston begins a final series against the Kansas City Royals. The other two contenders for the West Division crown, Seattle and Arlington, play each other in seven of their last ten contests.

So, you'd think it would be easy for the defending world champions to win at least half their games and sew up the division but not this year. The offense is intermittent and the pitching has been combustible as these young arms down the stretch have worked too many innings. Defense has also been a bit faulty.

So either the Spacemen can pull together and show a finishing kick or they may be on the outside looking in come October. We will see if Dusty Baker's men have another long postseason left in them.
