Harris in to pitch

Long gets ahead 2-0, takes a strike, then a ball 3-1, a strike 3-2, fouls (bat ends up in the dugout), fouls again (bat remains in his hands), looks at strike 3
Crawford takes a curve for a strike 0-1, lines out to Yuli

Final
Astros 3
Mariners 0

Awesome performance by Grienke

Magic number for best record is 1

I hope Julia gets to interview Greinke.  That should be fun.

Holbrook's strike zone tonight was damn near perfect all game long. With so many clown umpires out there calling all sorts of bullshit, it's a really bad look for Servais to get tossed bitching about the zone tonight.

He was just fucking tired of watching his shitty team get no-hit... again.

I believe the Mariners have been no-hit twice before this season

Man, I was rooting for Greinke. 5:30 am in Germany on. Weird.

Broadcast picked up on Grienke using his slider more early on then the slow curve.

He was just fantastic.

I think that was the first ball hit to centerfield.  So many grounders.  And 9 strikeouts.

No fucking way.  If Jake can't get it, it can't be caught.  Not even 10% of the time. 
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.

Looking back at the replay on Nola's hit, Jake was shaded a good bit over into RCF.  Had he been straight up, he catches that ball.

Servais on Greinke post-game: It was art. He's out there just dealing and drawing it up the way he wants to. It's frustrating when he's on his game like that, because you really have to be disciplined at the plate. One of the things he's really good at is when he gets ahead in the count, the balls are just off the edge and they look like strikes. Veteran pitcher and he was really on top of his game tonight. Coming in after Cole, it's totally different styles.

1. Amazing effort by Jake.   Not even in frame until the very end.
2. I agree with JV

Hit/catch probability is determined by exit velocity/launch angle and I don't think that where fielders are positioned plays much of a role. That's probably why it had 10% and not a lower number

Soft contact, well located.

He hung it inside.

He actually missed his spot.  Chirinos wanted it up and away.  I guess hoping for a pop-up or no swing and called strike?  https://www.mlb.com/gameday/astros-vs-mariners/2019/09/25/566448#game_state=final,lock_state=final,game_tab=videos,game=566448

It was a curve. Up and away? Nola had swung and missed two curves already. It was inside.
