Choo K's on a slider that dove at his feet. Awesome pitch.

And he gets Mazarra with a similar pitch. On to the 4th...2-1 Houston.

Whataburger is pushing the Pattie Melt. Wish they would bring back the Green Chile Cheeseburger. Best ever.

As a big fan of the patty melt, I heartily endorse this sentiment.

Every time I look up Yuli is standing on second base.

If Beltran is hitting in front of him during the ALDS...
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

2nd hit today, a sgl., by Calhoun. He had the HR. Got a feeling we will be getting tired of this guy over the next several years.

Calhoun is built a bit like Kirby Puckett.

“He’s wanted to play and we’re being pretty cautious with him," Hinch said before Wednesday  afternoon's series finale against the Rangers. "It’s convenient to give him the day off. I want to get Marwin (Gonzalez) in the outfield again because he’s going to play a lot of outfield moving forward. (I’m) getting Tony (Kemp) in the game again. It’s tough to sit him, but it’s probably the prudent thing to do. He should be back in there (Thursday).”

Hit #200 on the season for Jose Altuve.    4th straight season.   Fucking boss.

McTaggart: "Jose Altuve is the only player in Major League history with four separate 200-hit, 40-double, 30-steal seasons."

Carlos Correra ties his career high with his 22nd HR

Correa!!!!  Solo HR down the LF line that he hit off of his hands almost. Great job by Correa of yanking that one. 4-1 Houston.

through 4 Verlander with 8ks. I don't see how anyone but he could be #1 starter in the postseason.
And as I write this Drew Robinson hits a solo HR to RF.
4-2 us.

If it's an important spot in a post season game I reckon Hinch will pinch run for Beltran. He'll put in someone with a little more speed, someone like Brad Peacock.

McCann walks and Beltran singles.....McCann lumbers to 2b.  Speed on the bases now!!
Martinez is being lifted with a call to the pen.

A HR could score them both!

Yuli would have to hit a homer in order to get another double.

Add Yuli to that pair and it will take a homer

Yuli walks loading the bases. Kemp slashes first pitch to CF on a line and McCann lumbers in. Bases still jammed with Springer up and no outs. 5-2.
