We're not playing to guys' weaknesses. We can't let that happen. We got to fix it. We got to treat every last one of these games like it's our last one. All these count early on so we got to start turning it around, we got to start winning."

The Astros are hoping that newly-acquired OF/DH Carlos Beltran will be a leader in the clubhouse and a bit of a mentor to shortstop and fellow Puerto Rican Carlos Correa. The two players and and teammate Jose Altuve went out to dinner together for the first time Monday night. "Correa probably grew up watching Carlos Beltran," said manager A.J. Hinch. "He's probably been to his academy in San Juan. He might be half-scared of Beltran for all I know. We'll see."
