Box Score of the Week

A high scoring affair featuring the Milwaukee Brewers and Houston Astros on April 18, 2006.


The Houston Astros came into existence in 1962 when they debuted as the Colt .45's. They reached the .500 mark that initial season, starting 6-6. 

Upon defeating the Brewers in that April 2006 contest, the franchise's record was 3,507 wins, 3,507 losses. Yes, it was the first time Houston's all-time mark was at .500 or better since that 6-6 record in their debut season -- a span of 44 years!
