If the Astros knew ahead of time how good this game would be, they surely would have charged more for a ticket. It felt like May at Minute Maid Park on Saturday, in temperature and in success.

Discounting the possibility of a juggling act in-between innings — insert your joke about bullpen management here — there wasn’t much else the Astros’ 8-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays could have packed in. The Astros have four straight wins and homers in eight straight games, a kind of run they’ve seen only traces of since that breakout May.

Looking for the big-league debut of a flamethrower? Want him to face a former home-run king, too?

How about a robbed potential game-tying home run, or an inside-the-park home run from a slow slugger on an overturned call?

Maybe a dive into the stands is more your speed. Knuckleballs are cool, right?

In his major league debut, Astros reliever Mike Foltynewicz struck out Jose Bautista swinging on four pitches, tossing four straight 99-mph heaters. The only pseudo-disappointment was that Foltynewicz didn’t reach 100 mph, and he’ll have plenty of chances to do that. He retired two of the three batters he faced, walking the last, Colby Rasmus.

“It did a little bit,” Foltynewicz said when asked if it dawned on him exactly whom he had just struck out. “In my eyes, those are kind of those big-time guys coming in for your debut, Melky Cabrera and Bautista. … To have this moment finally come (in front of my parents) and have them see this special moment is probably going to be the top moment in my life, and hopefully theirs too.”

Most of the fun came late. The Astros took the lead in the fifth inning, breaking a tie at 2 on the feet of Jose Altuve. Baseball’s Scrappy-Doo singled off former Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey, whose bad pickoff throw let Altuve scramble to third.
