ASTROS MANAGER BO PORTER: “I know for sure we are a much better offensive club than which we’ve displayed here early on in the year and we have complete confidence that these guys will hit. When it happens, we’re going to see some crooked numbers going on here.” “It’s the entire lineup. I wouldn’t center on any one aspect of the lineup, it’s a collective group effort to keep the line moving; the next guy do his job and the next guy and the next guy and the next.” “I don’t think we wasted it [starting pitching performance] because those guys [the starting pitchers] are gaining confidence as they go along as the season continues to progress. We knew it was an area that we wanted to upgrade in. Those guys have done a tremendous job of keeping us in ballgames and pitching well, and we want that to continue. Offensively, we just need things to come around.”
