Are you a sports fan who loves to see great duo performances? Look no further than the Houston Astros’ starting rotation. In the 1950s, the Milwaukee Braves boasted a legendary tandem with their starters Warren Spahn and Johnny Sain, who were always a force to reckon with when they were on the mound. Fast forward to today, the Astros’ Framber Valdez and Cristian Javier are giving Spahn and Sain a run for their money.

After Valdez’s career-best game last night, Javier continued the dominance in the Astros’ victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Javier struck out 11 in just six innings and allowed only one walk and three hits. The top three Angels hitters, Taylor Ward, Mike Trout, and Shohei Ohtani, were a combined 0-9 against Javier and were fanned seven times. The Astros’ combination of Valdez and Javier is proving to be a lethal rotation that nobody wants to face.

The game had its moments of tension in the ninth inning when Ryan Pressly almost lost the game for the Astros. However, he managed to get a strikeout, a pop-out, and a groundout, saving the game and giving the Astros the series win.

The Houston Astros’ starting rotation has become a formidable force in Major League Baseball, with Valdez and Javier leading the charge. Their recent performances are nothing short of amazing, and any spectator would be lucky to witness these two in action.

The Astros are taking a day off tomorrow, but be sure to mark your calendars for their next game. You won’t want to miss this dynamic duo in action.
