Zeke Astacio came out looking like the goat in Game Three, but honestly we should have never seen him. The Astros had more than enough chances to win. When you leave that many guys on base, especially in the late innings, then it may come down to Zeke Astacio and Geoff Fucking Blum.
But now we have to move along and take Game Four. Both bullpens got a workout last night, so let’s hope Backe can go deep into the game. Some Astro hitters going deep would be nice too.

It looked a little tense in there Tuesday night; the deathly quiet at key moments is unnerving. But I have to say, I don’t think I?ve ever been so intent on one at-bat, and even one pitch, as when Ensberg had the 3-2 count with the bases loaded. But he whiffed.
