HOUSTON, May 22 (UPI) -- The Houston Astros have a young core and it shows in its ability to stay loose.
Outfielder George Springer showed just how loose Saturday, when he wore a T-Rex costume and tried to catch football passes from teammate Jake Marisnick.
The gimmick didn't help during the game, as the Astros fell 2-1 to the Texas Rangers. In fact, the Astros have now lost four straight games, heading into a home series Tuesday against the Baltimore Orioles.
Springer, 26, is hitting .259, with nine home runs and 25 RBI so far this season. Marisnick, 25, is 4-for-41 on the season, with one RBI.
