Ok, this edition of Home Run Derby leaves a lot to be desired.

Bottom 8

Devo in to hopefully protect the lead.

Chapman takes a breaking ball up and in, strike 1. Low, ball 1. Meatball change up right down the pipe hammered to left, gone.

Fuck the bullpen. Just a home run dispenser currently.

7-6 A's.

Olsen fouls off strike 1. Bounced, ball 1. Did he go? Yes. 1-2. Blummer points out that the Astros haven't seen many shut down innings lately, which is putting it kindly. The bullpen has sucked horse cock lately. Ponche looking on a bottom of the zone change.

That run Sanchez gave away with his brain fart sure would be nice right now.

Missed a few pitches, Davis down 1-2, Swings under a 96 MPH fastball, ponche!

2 outs.

The runs he gave up on shitty pitches would be even better right now.

Every run in this game has been scored on a home run. Thirteen runs and counting. Ten home runs.

I sound like my grandfather but this isn't baseball, this is bullshit.

2 outs.

Piscotty takes strike 1. Checks his swing, ball 1. Misses an inside fastball, 1-2. Lays off a low and out slider, 2-2.

The bullpen has sucked tonight, but man, Sanchez was hot fucking garbage from the 5th inning on. Piscotty swings behind a fastball, PONCHE!

End 8

7-6 A's.

Just a pathetic center cut pitch and we're down 1 with 3 outs left.

I'm almost hoping the Astros don't score, so I won't get so pissed off in the bottom of the 9th.

The 3 run shot was a pop up.

7-6 A's.

Top 9

Hendricks on to close it. 1.56 ERA. Throws a fastball 3 inches outside, strike 1. Fouls off a fastball, strike 2. Correa punches one JUST foul down the RF line on a ball that destroyed Carlos's bat. Foul by about an inch. It's almost like suddenly all the breaks AREN'T going the Astros way. Outside at 99, ball 1. Spikes ball 2. Blum is talking about how frustrating it is to know that the offense is playing great but the pitching sucks. Correa flies to RF, easily playable by Piscotty, F9.

1 out.

Yuli 98 on the outside corner, fouled off. Bounced, ball 1. Roped to left, but right at Grossman, 2 outs.

The Astros are going to lose this game despite having an absolutely great offensive night.

Sanchez and the bullpen have been fucking PUTRID.

Sanchez and the bullpen have been fucking PUTRID.

Chirinos (who will strike out on a high fastball) checks his swing on a high fastball. Takes strike one on the outside corner. Up, ball 2. Grounds a very hittable fastball to 3rd, 5-3. Ballgame.

Astros reeling, lost 3 in a row, and the starting pitching and bullpen both where absolute fucking garbage.

Final

7-6 A's

Fear not. Our terrible post-game team is blaming juiced baseballs for all the home runs tonight, and not the fat fucking pitches that led to them.
