When that ball came off of Betts's bat, I thought we were in real trouble. I'm glad it was hit right at Brantley.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Good win! Osuna wasn’t exactly sharp against Betts, but he got the out.

Few are.  But the pen was excellent tonight...outstanding work by Harris, Pressly and Osuna against a really tough lineup. 
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.

Didn’t they used to run a commercial where a fan pulls up some quick stats, takes a seat at the stadium, puts his glove in the air, and a dinger flies right into it?

Anyway, that’s how this team’s positioning feels sometimes.

Yes. Harris with the win, and Osuna with the save.

I emerged from the choir concert in time to see that the Astros had a 3-1 lead. 

Got the app going as they showed the Pressly replay.  Wow.

Watched Osuna finish it as we chowed on cake in the cafeteria.

Enjoyed reviewing the TZ once we got home.

Who was the Name that Astro?

That throw on the sac fly from Martinez took its first hop on the dirt between 1st and 2nd.

That seemed to be set up perfectly for the defense.  Glad he snapped it.

Loretta and Blum were somewhat similar players. Versatility on Blum’s side and power on Loretta’s.

Teams wearing their Memorial Day gear.  Thought maybe I was missing it.

Armed Forces Day is Sat. Wearing that gear for a week.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

FB in, Betts is locked in like Springer. Not sure the pitcher can do much but throw strikes and hope.

I was hoping that we would finish with the Red Sox before Betts found his stride, but it doesn't look like that was meant to be.

Three line drive outs last night. Watch out tonight.
