The Astros Strike Zone twitter account shows 5 pitches which helped the Astros and 1 which helped the Sox, but I'm pretty sure it missed a pitch or two during the Yuli at-bat.

I'm pretty sure you're right. Going into this I was just hoping that he wouldn't make Keuchel have to elevate to get a strike and that he'd be more or less equally terribe to both teams. So far, so good.

I believe he would have drawn a bases loaded walk if those first two strikes had been called the balls they actually were.

That seemed like a huge inning by Keuchel. Can't let those fuckers feel like the're in it.

The Fox booth doofuses spent a good five minutes trying to convince everyone that the Red Sox had the momentum at the top of the 4th.

In case anyone is interested, Angel Hernandez is trending on Twitter.  Probably because of things like this:

I literally have no idea how he's going to call a pitch unless it's ten inches or more off the plate. It really is just a total toss up.

Was Bregman going full out on that ground ball?  Camera work was shoddy.

Yes. Very close play at 1st.

Bot 4:

Price still in
McCann drags one on the ground perfectly into the shift
Springer gets ahead 2-0 and hits a pop-fly double down the LF line that never even reaches the corner
Bregman grounds one to 2nd but a bobble nearly lets him beat the throw (he doesn't); Springer to 3rd
Altuve gets the respect of an IBB; Red Sox grinding; runners at the corners
Correa hits a routine pop-up to shallow RF that they almomst make a hash of

BOS 1-3-0
HOU 4-6-0

Think so.

Respectfully disagree. He turned it on half way down the line

Bradley chops one down the first base line, Keuchel runs it down and flips to 1B just in time.  1 out, Bogaerts up

I just realized that AJ Pierfucknuggetski is one of the morons covering this game.  I'd actually rather listen to Costas.

Will defer to you since I may have also been victim to said shoddy camera work.

Pedroia with a routine grounder to short.  Keuchel has retired 11 in a row, sitting at 83 pitches.

MID 5th: Astros up 4-1

He's annoying to listen to and misinformed.  I literally did a confused dog head tilt when he referred to Yuli as "free-swinging."
