The Houston Astros had a 32-25 record and were one game back for first place in the American League West as of 11:50 p.m. Friday. Despite the success, the Astros bullpen has struggled recently on figuring out their recent late-game pitching disasters.

The Astros are certainly nowhere near to hitting the panic button when it comes to their pitching overall. At the same time, it must certainly frustrate Astros fans to see their team come up short in games they should have won.
