Astros look for big hits as they face D-backs amid playoff run

The Houston Astros could point to an avalanche of injuries as the primary culprit behind their disappointing season, but that macro perspective obscures one undermining inconsistency.

For debilitating stretches, the Astros (25-26) have struggled with runners in scoring position, a failure that was again at the forefront in Friday's 6-3 loss to the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks in the opener of a three-game interleague series.

Houston finished 2-for-10 with runners in scoring position against the Diamondbacks and set an ominous tone in the first inning. The Astros scratched across just one unearned run -- on a wild pitch -- despite loading the bases with no outs against Diamondbacks right-hander Zac Gallen.
