If anyone can do PBP, knock yourself out.  I will try to keep up as best I can.

T1:

Springer grounds out 6-3
Altuve...works the count full...homers to CF
Brantley strikes out swinging, 2-3 on the putout
Bregman...full up...walks
Alvarez...quickly down 0-2...1-2...grounds to 3B into the shift...Diaz fields it and throws it in the dirt, Choi can't pick it...Bregman to 3B and Alvarez to 2B on the TE5
Gurriel...full count...pops out F4

Astros strand a pair in scoring position, but grab a 1-0 lead.

Reddick...0-2...1-2...takes a meatball right down the middle for strike three...Costas calls him "Correa"

He bobbled the ball after running in a long way in the shift.  Have to get an out there.

B2:

Choi grounds out 4-3
Garcia singles to CF on the first pitch
Lowe bounces out 4-3, as Garcia moves to 2B and Costas refers to the Astros manager as "Kevin Cash".  Shift on, so Altuve had to run in a long way to field it, no double play chance
d'Arnaud hit by pitch
Kiermaier homers to RCF, Garcia scores, d'Arnaud scores
Adames doubles off the RCF wall
Duffy, pinch hitting for Diaz, taps back to the mound

3-1 Rays

My MLB app scoring notifications were ahead of Altuve's HR, so as Kiermaier's ball sailed to right center I sat back smugly.  Then it cleared the fence.  Then the notification came in.  Assholes.

T3:

Altuve doubles to LF
Wild pitch on a swing and miss, Altuve to 2B...but Cash asking for review, as pitch hit Brantley...overturned, ball is dead and Altuve has to go back to 2B
Brantley grounds out 6-3 right at 2B, Altuve has to scramble back to the bag
Bregman...0-2...strikes out swinging
Alvarez...0-2...1-2...takes a fastball for strike three

Leadoff double sits right there...3-1 Rays

Don't like that strike three call, but Alvarez has to protect the zone better.

Tough strike 3 to Yordan.

Probably out of the zone,  and up/inner half is tough to protect.

From Chandler Rome: "Overall, Zack Greinke's changeup has been pretty effective today — it's gotten four of his nine swings and misses — but he's mis-executed two that have left the ballpark."

Four of his swings and misses and four of his four runs allowed.  I'm not sure how effective that's gonna be for him over the long haul.

Next curve wasn't hanging,  Correa strikes out.

Miley in with 2 on,  2 out.  As Ty pointed out, the runner somehow didn't get to 3rd on that bloop.

Meadows doubles over Springer's head,  both runners score

It's 7-1.

Why the fuck are these goons spending all their time debating a counterfactual plate blocking and out call situation?

Tomorrow is a bullpen day, so it doesn't matter if this game ends 40-1, Miley has to take a beating.  He's already started...8-1

This.

I know splits and all that, but why not let Rondon face more than one batter?  His velocity after 3.2 innings of Grienke has got to look like a missile.

They has Morton on the ropes early, didn't put him away then he came back and dominated them.

Miley in with 2 on,  2 out.  As Ty pointed out, the runner somehow didn't get to 3rd on that bloop.

Meadows doubles over Springer's head,  both runners score

It's 7-1.

Pham singles thru the right side,  Reddick's throw home is just up the line,  Meadows slides around Chirinos

8-1

Choi walks
Garcia 6-4 FC

End 4
Rays 8-1

Springer played the double poorly, imo. He drifted until too late. Very catchable.

Nope, but everyone around me has had their shot.

Springer has been complete shit this series

Don’t think the Rays are starting one of their prized young arms on only three days of rest, especially when he missed four months of the season.  They might use Yonny Chirinos in a similar manner as they did Glasnow and Snell, or go with a complete bullpen game.

You’re probably right but in a do-or-die, a bullpen game is a tough proposition.

Can we please move Springer down in the order? He’s really struggling.

Glad you were not serious.

I’d rather lose 10-3 than 2-1. No what ifs. I would also rather Greinke not throw gopher balls.

Shitty fucking game. I was hoping Rondon was going to come in to face Adames in the 4th, but whatever. Springer, Brantley and Correa 0-13. Miley proved himself playoff dispensable. Altuve came to play and there's life in Alvarez. CFM showed up. Go get 'em tomorrow.

I bet it was his call.

Maybe. I read it would either be JV in short rest or Urquidy in a 2-1 series. If it goes 5, and Cole pitches game 5, messes up rotation, maybe I need to count the days. ALCS starts 10/12. Offense needs to show up.

Cole would be starting on regular rest game 3 in NY and a theoretical game 7 in Houston, also on regular rest. Sounds good to me.

Correct. If the Astros win tomorrow, Cole pitches Game 1 and Verlander slots into Game 2 on normal rest.

If there's a Game 5, Cole pitches. Probably Grienke in Game 1, Verlander Game 2, and Cole in Game 3. That would permit Grienke to pitch Game 5 and Verlander to pitch Game 6 and Cole to pitch Game 7 on regular/extended rest. That just leaves game 4. Not ideal, but it's all do or die at that point anyway.

WTF? A sports team embarrasses you. The other side is good.

Never really said I was personally embarrassed, just meant the overall performance with the exception of Altuve, Bregman, Yuli, and Yordan was not positive. A descriptive term not unlike many of the others used here in the Game Zone, including shitty and pathetic. But chastise me all you want. Because, well, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.

Rays will go with Diego Castillo as the opener. He’s opened six games this season and is 0-1 and 6.14 ERA in those games.
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.

Dunno, but we do not play well there.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

6. Did it twice last in 2017. They scored 5 there on Opening Day this year.
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.
