Bregman stops on the way to the dugout to tip Correa off on something about Glasnow.
Good pickup.

Attababy Yuli!

Bregman (or someone else) has picked out something that is giving away his pitches. He said "something something curveball, something top fastball".

Seems like the plan is to be a base runner not a slugger.
Goin' for a bus ride.

And Correa has the first shitty Astro at bat of the night, taking two fastballs and wildly swinging at a curve that bounced.

B1:

Springer singles to LCF
Brantley...0 for his last 13...singles to LCF, Springer to 3B
Altuve singles to RCF, Springer scores, Brantley to 3B
Bregman doubles to RCF, Branltey scores, Altuve scores
Alvarez grounds out 6-3, Bregman to 3B
Gurriel singles to LF, Bregman scores
Correa...takes two strikes...1-2...strikes out swinging at a pitch that bounces in front of the plate
Reddick...quickly down 0-2...strikes out swinging

But the Astros put up a crooked number...lead 4-0
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.

They’re swinging aggressively, which is a change for once

Sixteen down 14 to go. Carlos is getting closer to 30 ABs.

Or Reddick. He was an hour behind all 3 of those fastballs.

It amazes me how Astros pitchers just can't put up a zero after a big inning.

Probably only on the Rays because the Jays decided to play Cavan full time at second. Thanks, Craig.

Good job by Cole turning the page and getting the next three guys.  Offense...get back to work.
