Temperature here has plunged down into the lower 90s.

Nice slider for the GIDP.  Needs to get the FB under control, strike 3 to Choi was outside but I'll take it.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

I'm Fubo'ing this (Fox and Dish aren't speaking to each other).

TV is one pitch behind the radio.

My options are to stick with it or watch the game in silence.

There's no way I'll disengage the Worrell button.

If you listen on MLB AtBat you can pause the Astros radio audio to synch with the TV broadcast.

AJ Dickhead is one of the guys so you're making the right decision.

Very much so. AJ at least drops the occasional tidbit like why the umpire is more likely to miss the high inside strike.

AJ is a dick (even as a broadcaster) and my hatred for him as a player perhaps factors unfairly in how I consider him now. But he does know about baseball, and he will occasionally make a decent point.

If he does, someone's going to have to share it with me.

Altuve has had two putrid at bats so far.

And everyone else is taking fast meatballs for some reason. Pretty infuriating so far.

Alvarez has to protect there.
He really struggles with two strikes, not unusual for a rookie.
He breezed him, one more time!

He struggles with no strikes, which is the thing that annoys me.

Rays batters are already showing frustration at V and shaking their heads at the D.

Maybe they just need to blow their L on someone’s Ts.

Choi...3-0...3-1...3-2...walks
Diaz grounds into FC, Choi out 6-4

No score

For what it's worth, I believe I've heard twice that Glasnow has the highest called strike % in MLB.  He's doing something that the hitters aren't seeing, dunno what that is.

B4:

Gurriel flies out to deep RCF at the wall
Correa...2-0...takes a cookie right down the center...takes another cookie right down the center...full up...swings and misses a curve ball that bounces in front of the plate...2-3 on the put out...terrible at bat
Chirinos...0-2...1-2...strikes out swinging

No score

Chirinos takes the FB. Swings at the breaking ball.

Pham is struggling in Lf. Stretching and flexing a ton after hitting the wall and not chasing the Bergman double off the wall. If Gurriel pulls anything over there, it’ll score 2.

Maybe.  He had to be sweating pretty good too.  Could have just been that.

True.  But he wiped at one eye, then his nose, then both eyes - not any other part of his face.

B5:

Reddick...3-0...walks
Springer...takes a fastball down the middle for strike one...takes a fastball down the middle for strike two...takes a fastball down the middle for strike three
Altuve homers to LF, Reddick scores

And that chases Glasnow...McKay in

Brantley singles to RF on the first pitch
Bregman doubles off the LF wall, Brantley to 3B...Pham limping as he ran into the wall...what he was doing there I don't know, it was way over his head
Alvarez...infield in...quickly down 0-2...blown away on a fastball right down the middle

That's it for McKay, Roe in

Gurriel pops behind 1B...Lowe there...and drops it...Brantley scores, Bregman scores on the E4...Yuli not running, so has to stop at 1B
Gurriel steals 2B
Correa takes a hanging slider right down the center for strike three

But the Astros break loose a little...lead 4-0 after five

Sogard, pinch hitting for Adames singles, to LF on the first pitch, Wendle scores
Meadows doubles to CF, Sogard scores
Pham rolls one up the 3B line...infield single, Meadows to 3B

That's all for Pressly...Harris in

Hadn't pitched since the 28th.  Day off before Game 3, so shouldn't affect tomorrow.

eta:  also, same day as Osuna last pitched.

I missed the last couple out because I nodded off for a few minutes, woke up with 'thanks for watching' on the screen... trying not to do that in future games.
