Astros WON'T Lose Every Game This Season

Some were saying it couldn't be done, but the Astros have finally gotten a win in the 2011 season. A double with two outs in the ninth gave them a 3-2 victory over the Reds this afternoon.

Not only that, the win means that the 'Stros are only four games out of first place in the division (six games into the season.)

If they keep this up and win out, they will finish with a record of 156-5, which should be good enough to win the NL Central. Unless the Cubs get their act together.

All you hatahs -- or all you people who were convinced the team would suck because of our season preview this week -- should hang your heads in shame.
