Houston and our lack of offense

Sorry for the lack of updates yesterday - our internet connection in Houston wasn't great.  But other than that little issue, we had a great time in the first of our two Texas stops.  Minute Maid Park was beautiful - I went into it skeptical, because I haven't loved retractable roof stadiums that I had seen in the past - and will certainly be among the top few parks we visit on this trip.  The game wasn't half bad either - the Astros won 2-1 in 13 innings.

As a side note, we are still not seeing too much offense on this trip - if you take out the two games that the Nationals played in (in Philly and Washington), we've only seen 25 runs scored in 51 innings of baseball.  Wow.  Chances are, that will change tonight - we are on our way right now up to Arlington, where we will see the offensively loaded Dodgers and Rangers have at it in one of the best hitters parks in baseball.  If we see only three runs combined in this game also, we'll know we are a curse for offenses.
