Correa scratched with lower back tightness.  Hinch not concerned.  Hinch is a calmer man than I am.

Good god. I lost 20 IQ points by reading the comments. What was I thinking. #mcrib was pretty funny though.

I had to give up beer in January so I don’t even get to enjoy this evening game with a beer. I am still in deep mourning...

I am watching the Yankees at the Rays. Tied at 1 in the 10th so far on the strength of solo shots from Maybin and Keirmaier.

Will update.

Now I'm assuming we'll see Tommy Milone, the slop tossing righty who has done a frustratingly great job against us 4 times or so this year.

For some reason I thought he was left handed

I'm an idiot.  Must have glanced over when he had his glove off.

I don't know if he's actually left-handed, but he's pitching with his left hand.
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

Watching Milone makes me deeply impressed by how terrible Wayne Franklin was.

8 Ks thru 4 innings for Cole.

310 for the season.

JR Richard's club record is 313.

I know he strikes everybody out, but Cole seems especially inclined to collecting the third out of the inning via K. I like that about him.

Also yeah, that's true about the Rays' extra innings streak. They scare me much more than than anyone besides the Yankees.

That's the slash line Milone has held the Astros to this year. He's faced us more than any team besides the Rangers. He must wish he could always and only pitch against the best offense ever assembled.

That's 11for the game, and 313 for the season which ties JR Richard's team record.

Pressly got an opening strikeout, now having trouble finding the zone especially breaking stuff.

Walked Vogelbach, fell behind Gordon who singled.

1st/2nd, 1 out in the 8th.

Osuna gets the 9th.

Crawford reaches on a slow infield single up the middle
Lewis strikes out swinging after fouling off several pitches
Seager grounds into a 4-6 FC
Navarez lines out to Bregman at short

Final
Astros 3
Mariners 0

Astros now 103-54

1.5 game lead over NY for the best record in AL/MLB (Astros also own the tiebreaker).

The win clinches home field in the ALDS.
