It would be nice if Keuchel gave Angel something to squeeze.

Keuchel can't find the zone again.

Red Sox definitely know how to take a pitch.

Astros need to acquire him. He can platoon. He plays home games.

We're in the 2nd inning, not the 1st.

Keuchel can't find the zone again.

...and Hernandez is giving him all of the inside and most of just below the zone.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

All of their antics calling time is rather tedious.

Except when he doesn't.

+1. Even when it’s (mostly) in your favor, it’s cringe-worthy.

Top 2:

Young smacks the first pitch into the corner by the boxes for an easy double - steals 3rd by a kilometre
Vazquez works the count to 2-0 and 3-1, then walks
Marrero (sporting a baby Keuchel beard) puts up a fight but gets ponched wailing at an inside cutter
For the record, Hernandez' strike zone is consistently inconsistent
Bradley Jr. works the count full, spoils a couple more pitches, then pokes one on the ground right up the middle
Young scores from 3rd, runners at 1st & 2nd, 1 out
Hernandez is going to cause a riot before this game is over

Bogaerts gets a called strike on a head-high pitch on his way to whiffing at that inside cutter
Pedroia falls behind 0-2, works it back to even, a goes down swinging at a curve in the dirt - give Angel the assist on that one

BOS 1-3-0
HOU 2-2-0

Keuchel struck out the side around 2 hits and a walk, giving up only 1 run.  Hernandez is a fucking disaster and is making it impossible to bat or pitch with any aplomb.

Hitters need to give Keuchel a breather here.

Bot 2:

Reddick pops up a 2-1 pitch to LCF
Gurriel takes a 4-pitch gambol to 1st
Gonzales falls behind 1-2 and then whiffs at a high curve (that Angel may or may not have called a strike)
McCann pops one up to the shortstop

BOS 1-3-0
HOU 2-2-0
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Maybe Keuchel is settling in. Nice 1-2-3 inning.
He breezed him, one more time!

Top 3:

Keuchel starts the inning on 48 pitches
Benintendi (good name) lofts one a scoash shy of the track for Springer to pocket easily
Betts grounds on past Keuchel but Altuve deals with him
Ramirez shoulders his bat on a 3-2 pitch inside, off the plate, on which Angel theatrically rings him up

BOS 1-3-0
HOU 2-2-0

Nice quick inning that.
