Cole strikes out the side in the 7th.

That's 14 for the game, 316 for the season.


He's a baaaad man.

Half of those Mariners hitters wouldn't even swing.

Pressly in for the 8th.

Cole's line:
7 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 14 K, 0 BB

JV may need another no hitter to get the Cy Young.

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.

Harris warming up.

Pressly not looking good at all. Harris just now getting up.

Looking at the mound repeatedly, unhappy with something.

2 strike WP advances the runners, but he gets Smith with a good slider.

Pressly gets Shed Long (still love that name) looking to end the 8th.

3-0 Astros.

Diaz picked up a 1 out walk and a stolen base, but Machete struck out on a 3-2 FB and Reddick grounded out.

Mid 9
Astros 3-0

I can't link to it but Footer has a wonderful piece on MLB News about the Berley Bowl. This is the 20th anniversary. There's an especially excellent paragraph concerning Elarton and a Milwaukee grounds crewman that was news to me.

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.

Saw that earlier today, like you I had never heard about Elarton cold-cocking the grounds crew guy.

I love that the Astros players gave him all kinds of signed merchandise as a sorry and that he was out there raking the field with a black eye the next day.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

Most AL K's since 1980
Len Barker led the AL with 187 in 1980. Johnson had 308 in 1993.

Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

If you're Visger and his friends, the moment you saw that you must have thought: Victory!

Don't know why they chose '80 as the cutoff for their graphic...Cole has the most AL K's since Nolan in '77 (341)
