The Astros Hit Their Way Into History Books

Boston Red Sox v Houston Astros

It was one for the history books. The Houston Astros beat the Baltimore Orioles Saturday night in Camden Yards 23 to 2.

Rookie Yordan Alvarez had three of Houston's six home runs. Alvarez became the first rookie to hit three homers and drive in at least seven runs since the RBI became a stat in 1920, helping Houston to its highest-scoring game in franchise history.

Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa also homered for the Astros, and Aaron Sanchez backed up his six-inning, no-hit Houston debut in his last outing by allowing one run and three hits in five frames. Correa's third inning homer traveled 474 feet, setting a record for the longest distance at Camden Yards since Statcast started keeping track.

The Astros wrap up the series in Baltimore at noon. Justin Verlander will be on the mound. You can hear the game on iHeartRadio’s KMBE, Sports Talk 790.

The Astros go to Chicago to face the White Sox for three games starting Monday, and on Thursday start a four-game series against the A’s in Oakland.
