Brian Bogusevic, former Astros outfielder and Space City Home Network analyst, joins Next Up to react to the Atlanta Braves sweeping the Astros in three-game series at Minute Maid Park. Wednesday's matchup saw the Astros lose 5-4 in the 10th inning, bringing the Astros season record to 6-14. "You don't want to panic," but "its an issue" and the Astros have "to be better," Bogusevic said. The Braves tied the game when Ryan Pressly gave up two runs in eighth. If the back of the bullpen isn't performing well, "the way the team is structured just doesn't really function." José Abreu continued to struggle at first base with a fielding error that resulted in a run for the Braves. Abreu also went 0-for-2 with a walk to drop his batting average to .078. "I think we're going to see [Joey] Loperfido at some point," because "at this point, anything is an upgrade than what you're getting." The Astros faced tough opponents in their first 20 games, but Bogusevic envisions a lighter schedule ahead as the Astros travel to take on the Washington Nationals. "Other players have to have more consistent performances," and "there are things that should level out."
