With a three-game series against another first-place team looming -- the Orioles come to Minute Maid Park beginning Tuesday -- the Astros are still searching for answers.

5/21/2016 | Fiers is latest victim of a hard-luck loss

The starting pitching that scuffled so much in April has turned it around, but only enough for the Astros to lose frustratingly close games in May. The Astros got another strong start Saturday night against the Rangers, but lost their third consecutive 2-1 game to fall to 10 games under .500.

One bad pitch to Rangers slugger Prince Fielder muddied what was an otherwise promising outing from Astros starter Lance McCullers, who showed how much the rotation has missed him by allowing two runs and striking out seven batters in six innings in Friday night's 2-1 loss to the Rangers at Minute Maid Park.

It's no secret the Astros' Scott Feldman's velocity has been up since he moved to the bullpen last month after making four starts, and the veteran right-hander even had to do a double take when he hit 95 mph with a fastball in the eighth inning of Thursday's loss in Chicago.

5/18/2016 | Sale vs. Altuve a matchup of stars taking off

Baseball never stops being a game of adjustments, even for its high achievers. Jose Altuve won the American League batting title in 2014, but spent last season getting comfortable with a mechanical change designed to help drive the ball over the outfield more often. Chris Sale set a franchise record for strikeouts last season but went to Spring Training working to pitch deeper into games, even if it meant sometimes pitching to contact.

5/18/2016 | Rasmus spends time with special baseball fan
