The Astros now have 10 players with double digit home runs, which is one shy of the Major League record of 11 (2004 Tigers).

Get this: The 2015 Astros have 10 players with at least 10 HRs. The 1979 Astros didn't have any (Cruz led with 9).

This is the first time in team history the Astros have had two catchers hit at least 10 homers. And Jed Lowrie is heating up (3-for-3).

If Astros hold on, they're guaranteed to gain a game on Rangers or Angels. Who would you rather see them gain on at this point?
