HOUSTON (AP) - Houston lost a franchise-record 111 games and struck out more times than any team in major league history this season.

And if that weren't tough enough, they ended the season with a team-record 15-game losing streak - the longest losing skid to end a year in the majors since 1899.

So how could the Astros possibly feel optimistic? First-year manager Bo Porter believes the experience his young players gained this season will help the team in the future.

He says of next year: "I think that we're definitely going to be better."
