That ball was taylor made for hitting through the right side, right on the lower outside corner. That would have been first and third with one out for Springer. Instead, he tries to pull it and grounds weakly into the DP.
He breezed him, one more time!

Greinke isn’t getting the same calls down in the zone that Tanaka is in my biased opinion.

Tanaka's working with a much bigger strike zone than Greinke so far.

He got robbed on that strike on the corner to Encarnacion but he ultimately got the k anyway.

If you are talking about a couple of pitches at the bottom of the zone, you are correct.

That settles it.

George agrees

George should start swinging at strikes instead of making fucking pouty faces then chasing out of the zone.

Bottom 4 - top of the order

Springer - Strike 1, ball 1 high and tight, strike 2 on the bottom of the zone, ball 2 way outside, ball 3 down and out, strike 3 swinging. 1 out
Brantley - strike 1 on the outside, foul (strike 2),  ball 1 high, foul, fly ball to Stanton in left.. 2 outs
Altuve - strike 1 swinging on the outside edge, down and out for ball 1, ball 2 low, ball 3 down and out, foul (strike 2),  foul, strike swinging on the outside.. 3 outs.

After 4, Astros 0, Yanks 1

They need to stop swinging at that slop off the plate.

The player nobody wanted in the lineup is the only one that's done anything against Slopnaka so far.

Seems they need to maybe spit on those third strike pitches though Tananka is throwing some great stuff on the outside..

Tanaka only throws junk, and he’s making the Astro hitters look silly so far.

The pitches that struck out Springer and Altuve were balls out of his hand.  Easy for me to say, but it’s their job to recognize that.

Veins bulged on the phallus due to its indignation a breaking ball over the plate was called a strike.
