MLB roundup: Astros continue power surge

Jose Altuve and Yuli Gurriel hit grand slams as the Houston Astros defeated the host Seattle Mariners 10-6 Friday night.

It was the fourth consecutive game in which Altuve has gone deep, and he has five home runs over that span.

George Springer also homered for the Astros, who extended their winning streak to seven games. The Mariners had their six-game winning streak snapped.

Tom Murphy hit a solo homer in the ninth inning to extend the Mariners’ major league record of consecutive games with a home run to start a season to 16.

I hope the Astros’ electronic equipment can survive this.

I know I'm biased, but it's a joy to watch Jose Altuve play baseball.

Who could deny the pleasure of watching the Terror Tot (and I say that after having watched him abuse Yankees' pitching this past week)?

It sure seems like everybody and their mom has 3-5+ HR already this sesson! What a lucky break for baseball, seeing as the game is obviously in some kind of crisis ("The media fail journalism? That's unpossible!") to have a glut of HRs show up in this time of need and crisis! Chicks dig the longball, dontchaknow?

Now if we could only get these 13-7 type games over in 2hrs why I reckon there'd finally be a product that people are able to enjoy! =P
