How many calls would Angel have to make in our favor to get to neutral with the Astros?  101?  126?

Aaaaand then Angel gives Betts time as Keuchel is holding in the stretch and about to pitch.

Next pitch is a seeing eye double.

This one is.  Altuve and Correa hit him, but no one else too much.

Not for Altuve, apparently.

Nice job of extending the strike zone for Altuve.  That pitch was halfway to his ankles.

As there is no other PBP...

Top 1:
Bogaerts grounds out quickly to 3rd
Pedroia walked on 4 straight
Benitendi grounds out after getting 2 balls to start the AB; infield unable to turn 2
Betts hits a bloop double over Gurriel after getting a BS time out allowed by HPU Hernandez
Ramirez grounds softly to 3rd, a slick pick and throw by Bregman gets him

0-1-0

There is some low energy here at 2.00 am as well, but Carlos provides a spark!

Bot 1:

Springer rolls over a high curve to 2B
Bregman tips a lazy fly to RF
Altuve golfs one off the floor into LCF for a sharp single - insane hitting
Correa gets fucked around by Hernandez and then jumps on one he saw coming from last Tuesday and blasts it off the wall in LF
Gattis flies out to CF which was noisy only because people were still gasping at Correa's shot

BOS  0-1-0
HOU 2-2-0

Keuchel can't find the zone again.
