HOUSTON -- Coming off a game in which they erupted for 21 runs on Sunday against the Mariners, the Astros picked up right where they left off Monday by blasting six home runs in the first two innings against the A’s, including two by rookie sensation Yordan Alvarez.

The Astros became the first team in Major League history to hit six home runs in the first two innings of a game, per Elias, and they set the club record for most runs scored in a two-game span (32).
