    Expect them to break every loser record when they enter the AL next year

    Well - the 'stros are 0-2 in August so far.

    The 1890 Pittsburg Alleghanys went 1-27 in August. (http://www.baseball-reference.com/te...e-scores.shtml)

    Can the 'Stros break that record?!?!

    Stay tuned.

    EDIT:

    Also, the 1898 STL Browns matched the 2012 Astros, going 3-24 as well.

    Astros set new MLB record?

    According to Baseball Almanac, the Washington Senators of 1909 hold the record for most losses in the month of July in baseball history. That memorable month, they went 5 - 29. That record is pretty safe, since the All-Star break prevents most modern teams from even playing 29 games in July.

    However, the Houston Astros won only 3 games in July this year. Is that a new MLB record for fewest wins in the month of July?
    I already know they Orioles won only 1 game in April 1988, and the Cleveland Spiders had similar performances in August and September, so the Astros' feat is by no means the fewest wins ever in one month, but I am specifically wondering if it is the fewest ever in the month of July.

    I'm going to assume it is, unless somebody can find a team that won fewer games in July some year in the past.
