The 2013 Houston Astros season was the 52nd season for the franchise in Houston, their 49th as the Astros and their 14th season at Minute Maid Park. This season was the first for the Astros as a member of the American League, as they switched from the National League Central division to the American League West division.

The Astros continued their exceptionally poor records of 2011 and 2012, winning only 51 games, the fewest by any Major League Baseball team since the 2004 Arizona Diamondbacks finished with an identical record; the last worse record was by the 2003 Detroit Tigers. Perhaps the lowest point of the season came when the Astros finished with a 15 game losing streak. Other lowlights included winning only 12 series (only 2 of which were sweeps, none outside of the AL West), getting swept 18 times, winning just 2 games against the rival Texas Rangers, getting shut out 18 times (twice in a row against the Rangers and the Rays), and yielding 10 runs or more in 17 games.

Television coverage[edit]

Astros games were televised on the Comcast SportsNet Houston network in 2013. The network broadcasts to about 40% of the households in the Houston area. Writer J. J. Cooper said that a game in September received a 0.0 rating, as "the Nielsen company could not statistically prove that anyone in the Houston market actually watched the game."[1]
