Astros @ Angels, September 26th 2019

Doors are closing on the plane in 5 minutes. Hoping to hear Miley’s first batter.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

Three up, three down in the top of the first.
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

First batter was good. Three pitches and got a ground out.

Jose Urquidy, come on down!
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

Some bad luck this game, and Aledmys Diaz has been Miley's worst enemy, but Miley is not looking good.

Toro fielded that a few feet from 3B.

If he sprinted across the infield could he have reached first before Pujols?

Tucker didn't seem to be in too big of a hurry to get Goodwin's ball in quickly.

Yes, and he could have stopped to tie his laces on the way.

Tucker is in LF. Brantley fielded Goodwin's hit.

Astros get their first hit, an infield single by Straw, but they're appear pretty disinterested to this point.

You would think they would look a little more threatening against a 6+ era guy... still, early days.

Hopefully if you're on a plane it allows or denies you access to a game depending on if you're flying over a given team's airspace.

Absolutely. The mlb.tv app utilizes the location function and I have to use the ‘in market streaming’ option when flying out of Texas because mlb.tv is blacked out.

If the stream is started it doesn’t check again, so i’m good on the way in tonight with mlb.tv.

Reddick singles, he's 4 for 5 tonight;
Pere Abraham walks;
Stubbs Ks swinging

To the bottom of the 10 tied at 3.

Still 3 - 3

Just saw the replay.

Leadoff walk,  stolen base (initially called out, replay overturned; for some reason he didn't slide), strikeout, runner moved to third, winning run scores on a fielding error by Tucker at 1st.

Oh well.

ETA: runner moved on a 4-3 grounder.  Winning run scored with 2 outs.

Sure was.  But is that OJT for him @ 1st base?  (11 games in the minors and 4 (to date) in the ML.)
Can't imagine having to react to a screaming line drive on the infield compared to a line drive in the OF.
