WTF with the gyrations of Parker?

No kidding.

Someone should do the concussion protocol on him.

Verlander out for the 9th
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Ohtani got a huge hole in the top of his swing.

Good to have Pujols clogging up the base paths. 
60% of the time... it works everytime.

Bottom 9

Ohtani falls behind 0-2, Ks swinging (foul tip caught,  career K #2,500)
Upton pops out to Gurriel in foul territory
Pujols takes curve for a called strike, taps foul, takes a ball,  then another, checks his swing to go full,  singles on a FB to RF
Simmons stepped in as Giles gets up in the pen, takes a stroke then a ball, then a curve misses,  as does the next one which brings McCann out to discuss things,  next pitch is outside,  Simmons is the first walk of the game, Pujols to 2nd
Cozart takes slider for a ball,  then a FB for a strike, another FB misses low, next pitch popped up to Gurriel

FINAL
Astros 2
Angels 0

That was a thing of beauty! Glad I stayed up to watch that. JV is special.

Good sports night.

Rockets looked like themselves,  and an
important series win for the Astros.

Verlander is just a joy to watch.  He has a plan and typically executes it close to flawlessly.  He’s also an insanely good big game pitcher.
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.
