So let me get this straight. Yesterday Chris Young doesn't play at all. Today he starts and promptly rakes a double into the gap and ends up scoring their only run to this point. Then in a crucial situation he gets replaced by a pinch hitter.

This is not a different Chris Young, right? This is the guy who has terrorized the Astros for years?

I remember having Zobrist-envy after seeing the Royals and then the Cubs win the WS with a player like him.  Marwin has erased any inkling of that feeling.

Marwin singles down the 3B line, the ball kicks sharply off the wall in foul territory to hold him to a single.

1 on, 0 out, McCann up

McCann's knuckle - on which he was just hit - looks like he's halfway through his metamorphosis into a werewolf.

This game is going to take 6 hours at this rate...

McCann takes the first pitch off his fingers.  Runners at 1st and 2nd, 0 out, Springer up

Rodriguez gets the hook already, Addison Reed coming in to pitch to Springer

Moreland was being very pesky.

Moreland's always been a tough out against us.

Here are two other quick unscientific BoSox/Astros facts that I believe:

1) whoever is catching for them comes up big against us
2) we pitch well against Price.

Same Chris Young. His production has fallen off tremendously, but not his Astros killing. Surprised the Sawks computers haven't picked that up.

Time to break this one wide open.  It's been too close for too long.

Bregman at least needs to get Marwin home.

Springer grounds into a force play at 2B, ball hit too slowly for a DP.  Marwin advances to 3B.  Runners at the corners, 1 out, Bregman up

That is not playoff caliber defense.

Bregman didn't but Betts did.

Bregman pops out to fairly shallow left but Betts drops the ball trying to turn the throw to home.  Marwin scores, 5-1 Astros.

Altuve intentionally walked again.  Runners at 1st and 2nd, 2 outs, Correa up
