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.

I will be in and out.  Have conference calls from 9-midnight.  And making soup for Mrs. Hawk.  Tonight will be a grind.

Due to my usual state of being gripped with fear of losing, it was somewhat of a shock to hear Smoltz talking about how the Yankees must win at least one of these games just to get back to Houston.  I hope they will be pressing like fuck tonight because they won’t want to face JV tomorrow needing to win to stay alive. 

I hope Greinke can keep them quiet for a while to ramp up the pressure.  I also hope that the Astros will wait on Tanaka and take him the other way (NTTAWWTJ to give Zack something to work with.

Nice job, Brantley.  Let’s work this slop-throwing scrub and get into their bullpen.

T1:

Springer...who is hitting .083 this series...lines out to SS in the shift.  Robbed.
Altuve flies out to RF...one handed half swing went almost to the track
Brantley...takes two floating meatballs down the center...evens the count at 2-2...works it full...fouling off pitches...walks
Bregman takes strike one four inches off the plate...pops up F6

No score

I guess he is trying to figure out where the ump thinks the bottom corner is. Hasn't found it yet.

Blue doesn’t look to have a big zone tonight, at least for Greinke*. 

* Haven’t seen enough of Tanaka yet to suggest he’s calling it differently for him.

1st inning showed he’s getting the outside edge. Greinke did not get the same.

B1:

LeMahieu...3-0...walks
Judge lines to SS...Correa knocks it down and it trickles away, but LeMahieu had to freeze, so Correa runs it down and throws out LeMahieu at 2B...Score it a 6-4 FC
Hicks pops one to shallow RCF...Correa out and almost gets there, but it finds some grass...Judge to 2B...easy pop out on any other night
Torres pops to 1B...IFR in effect
Judge steals 3B, Hicks steals 2B
Encarnacion...full up...walks
Gardner...3-0...walks...Judge scores, Hicks to 3B, Encarnacion to 2B
Sanchez...0-2...strikes out swinging

But the Yankees get a run on a bloop and three free passes.  Lead 1-0

The 0-1 pitch to Sanchez was interesting, but Greinke averted disaster for now.

Cy Tanaka is back.

He's throwing the same puss up there that Greinke is.  Difference is the Yankees have laid off the shit 3-1 sliders in the dirt.
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.

Gameday says the wind is 16 mph to RF. Have they given more info on the broadcast?

 Yes. They said on the broadcast that the winds are swirling in the stadium and that the balls are actually dying to center and right field but heading out to left field rather briskly. They also mentioned that pitchers may struggle as there is a lot of wind in the 60’-6” pitching channel.

Outside of one he threw to Judge, Greinke's changeup has deserted him.

Just threw a 3-2 fastball by Judge to end the inning.  Judge was not ready for that.

He lulled him with the slow curves down — a 24 mph difference.

Greinke threw Sanchez? in the first a meatball fastball right down the middle that was just stared at.  Guess-hitting is a cruel bitch goddess.

If the goal is to be quiet back there, Sanchez is a drunk Yankee fan.

That ball was MORE than deep enough to score PLUS Judge had to field it on the run moving to his left.

Smoltz said, “Brantley’s got him right where he wants him” when Brantley got to 0-2. Pretty funny.

Springer grounds out 6-3. 1 down
Altuve flies out to center. 2 down.
Brantley claws out of 0-2 to work the count full and then flies out to a diving Judge. Bastard.

Mid 5. Astros up 3-1.

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.

Prob too quick. He struck Judge out 3 pitches before the walk. He got yanked before Tanaka, I think he deserved to pitch to Hicks.

Gregorius grounds out 3-1. 1 down.
LeMahieu singles to right. 1 on one out.
Judge works count full (with help from hpu) and then walks and that’s it for Greinke.

Pressly comes in with 2 on and 1 out and walks Hicks. bases full. One down.

Torres comes up hacking and fouls off first pitch. And after battling is RUNG UP!!

(Fox enjoying showing Astros fans reactions)

Encarnacion tries to take Chirinos out with his backswing. And is RUNG UP!!!!!!

Yanks leave bases loaded.

Hubba hubba, baby, end of 5 Astros lead 3-1

I meant philosophically.

In the olden days (pre internet), the only baseball scores/news I could get were two day old scores in the daily newspaper and most Monday they would show the standings, so if he feed lags a few minutes I try not to let it bother me too much.

These "What's even easier than hitting a home run into the Crawford Boxes?" and fucking GEICO "That's even easier than [fill in the blank with remarkably rare, improbable event]" commercials are so aggressively antilogical and offensively stupid. Who the fuck are the people writing this shit?

I avoid spoilers like the plague for scripted drama but for real drama, actual drama, like sports, I cannot not look at the most current feed. And I remember the old days too.

Bregman lines hard to LaMehieu who can’t reel it in! Bregs reaches on E3.

And that chases Tanaka.

Green in pitching to Gurriel who hits a shot just foul to right and then infield pop out for 1 away.

Alvarez finally gets a hit! Single to center. Bregman to third.  1 down for Correa.  Come on baby...

COOOORRRRREEEEEAAAAA!!!!!! 3 run blast to right!!!!!

Chirinos flies out to LaMehieu in foul territory. 2 down.

Reddick K’s swinging.

Mid 6, Astros extend lead to 6-1

Astros got fucked there.  Dumbass fan reaches out and LeMahieu gets 2B, even though he's stopped at 1B.

The fan seemed to reach over the wall into the field of play when he touched it. Wouldn’t that make it a dead ball and a single, not a ground rule double?

It makes it spectator interference, and it's not an automatic double.  The umps place runners where they think they'd have reached if there were no interference.  LeMahieu had already stopped at 1B. 

As James strikes out Judge to end the inning.

Bottom of 6th James in for 6-7-8 and throws 4 straight balls to Gardner.  F’n leadoff walk.

Sanchez takes ball 1 and 2. James has yet to throw a strike.

Uuuuuughhhh.  Sanchez launches 2-1 pitch over the left field wall.

Urshela strikes out swinging. 1 down.

Gregorius pops to Bregman in foul territory. 2 away.

LeMahieu hits ground rule double to right. Bounces out of a fan’s free hand

Come on James.......

Judge K’s swinging!!!!!

End of 6.  Astros lead cut to 6-3.

Let’s get those runs back boys!

You don't know that.   And it's irrelevant anyway.  The fan reached over the wall into the field of play and touched the ball.  It's dead at that point and the runner should have been made to stay at 1B.

That’s what I thought, but I knew you would have the clear explanation. Thankfully, the ruling ended up being inconsequential.

There's no off day for the rest of series, no matter how long it lasts. May want to save those pitches.

Ottavino and now Fatbathia seems to be some kind of concession.

Gurriel's at bat there was amazing. His insistence on going the other way through the whole at bat shows a situational awareness not always fully present in every other Astro.

Also, Harris is a wonder to behold. He is in total control out there.

I’m not sure you take your foot off the gas in this one.  Nail it down, use Osuna with a 10 run lead, post the W.

Yep. This would be a YUGE win if they can pull it out.

They’re only down by 3, but they’re also shredding a bullpen that is going to have to pitch a whole game if they take this to 7 games.

The normally well above average Yankees infield defense has been shockingly horrible.
