Luck a factor for Astros hitters?
Carlos Gomez has suffered a massive OPS decline this season. Meanwhile, Jose Altuve and Jason Castro have seen notable improvement at the plate. Are these performances for real or is luck -- good or bad -- a factor? FiveThirtyEight has the answer. Hitting hard, or into hard luck?
Keuchel might not get back on track
Dallas Keuchel has performed much worse than expected this season, but that has actually been the norm for the left-hander in every year except 2015's Cy Young campaign, Baseball Info Solutions notes. Don't expect the left-hander to return to his award-winning form. Pitchers who won't rebound (Insider)

Multiple Springer homers = Astros wins

Thursday's longest home runs
Although George Springer cracked the list twice with his two solo homers off Orioles starter Kevin Gausman, Ryan Braun and Bryce Harper led the way on Thursday. Braun's shot traveled a season-long 440 feet, per ESPN's Home Run Tracker.

It's been a breezy 3 days in Houston for the Orioles. They whiffed 52 times! The word from the Elias Sports Bureau: That's the most ever in a 3-game series. The record they broke was a month old - 47, by the Nationals against the Twins.
George Springer homered twice and the Houston Astros set a major league record for strikeouts in a three-game series, finishing a sweep of the Baltimore Orioles with a 4-2 win Thursday night.
