17 straight games with a doubleheader and a scratched starter.   

JV strikes out 11.  Pressly issues the only walk for the staff in the 8th inning.  But the offense musters 2 runs in 13 frames.  This after scores at 7, 9, and 6 runs and losing games this week alone.

That's baseball. Sometimes it hurts like a bitch.

Altuve is mystifying. I wonder if they try to talk to him. He does not appear to consider what the team needs from him during each AB; he only chases hits.

I couldn't believe he tried to drop a bunt with 2 outs and a runner on second.

The beginning of August fooled us, but we've now officially entered the August doldrums. I don't know why this seems to happen so consistently. Maybe everybody is tired, and they don't yet have the September urgency/excitement to help them overcome it.

Extra innings was about the last thing they needed.

Extra innings with a AAA call up starting the next game.

Sigh.

Dang it.

Box score indicates the pen did its job. After the Pressly walk in the 8th (Astros only BB allowed of the game), A's held without a walk or a hit until the 12th.

Box score on the offensive side . . . anemic.  9 hits in 13 innings (9 for 47). 2 for 9 RISP.  12 LOB.  Scoreless in 12 of the 13 innings.  1 hit in the extra frames.

Or that he would have run faster than a glacier.

Same spot,  but Yordan ripped it into left center.

The top of the order not named Brantley has been un-freaking-productive tonight.

Did you think Correa would be last?

As a lefty I protest that poll.

Springer is wearing a hole in his pants falling to his knees.

Yes.

At least half a dozen times this week.

For those not watching the Astros broadcast,  in the last 15 innings the Astros have scored, they've allowed runs in 10 of the ensuing half innings.

Unbelievable.

Leads and ties haven't lasted more than a third of an inning this whole week.

Alvarez singles softly into left.

Everybody moves up.

Bases juiced for Correa.

1 out double for Brantley.

I thought Cahna caught it.   Glad he didn't.
