They said AJ was looking to get 5 good innings out of him.

He never stumbled. Guess he just reached the prescribed limit.

He had more pitches. AJ is one conservative mofo.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

No reason to take him out. Probably made the playoff roster tonight.

That LHP is pretty good.

Astros bats have gone to sleep.

The top of the Astros lineup, aside from Brantley, is just up there putzing around.

Fucking aggravating.

He went thru the whole lineup and just gave up the hit to Machete.

Springer pushed him to a full count.   Not sure anybody else got deep in a count.

Springer swing at ball four, and Altuve popped up the first pitch, which was off the plate.

Abreu threw some filth up there.

Need 2 runs.

Altuve's AB was maddening.

Another cookie, this time to Reddick, harmlessly popped to center.

Fitting ending. Great at bat that ends swinging at a ball you'd need a golf club to hit.

Dammit.

Tucker and Toro chase strike 3 in the dirt.

Toro with a full count,  with Springer on deck.

On a 3-2 pitch

Abreu looks damn good.

Their LHP was making his MLB debut.

To summarize:

Urquidy went 5 innings,  struck out 10 batters,  gave up 1 run.

James matched that runs allowed total on his first batter and got worse from there.

Smith was rocky.

Rondon was fine.

Harris gave up 2 baserunners.

Abreu was sharp.

The bats missed opportunities early and were stifled late.  No baserunners in the 7th, 8th, or 9th innings.

Also:

Astros have now lost 4 games at home to division opponents this season.

If Maldonado keeps that ball in front of him, that lazy grounder is at least one out and possibly 2.

Yep. James wasn't good, but that PB flipped the game.

Just looked at the box because I could not watch until the 7th. That was scored as a WP. Listed to the 6th inning on the radio, and those guys thought James was pretty bad.
