Any place to go to watch the game?

Minute Maid Park?

Hard to win when your offense just doesn't show up to the ballpark

Astros had baserunners in every inning except the 9th.  0 fer w/RISP and 9 LOBsters.

The Astros only used 2 pitchers compared to 4 for them.  At least that was good.

But seriously, I hope the bats get rattled on the way back to Houston.

I was really hoping they would close it out tonight, partly so that the Yankee fans would have to watch their season end at home, but mostly because it meant that the Astros would be able to start Verlander and Cole in games 1 & 2 against Washington on normal rest. That can still happen if Urquidy et al (and the damn offense!) take care of business tomorrow, but the pitching matchups probably mean that tomorrow's game will be a topsy-turvy affair.

Well, if the Astros get to the WS then they clench at home, that should be fun.

That's why you worry about winning this series before setting up the rotation for the next.

Let’s just get through game 6 and worry about what happens after that.

Astros go home up 3-2 in the LCS.         Taking 2 of 3 from the Yankees in their god-forsaken crib means they only have to win 1 at home.   I like their chances.

After the first inning, the Yankees only had one baserunner, and that was the little bloop single by Gregorius.

He's pretty bad.  Ted Simmons was bad, but not this bad.  Worst in a long time though.

Other than that, Mrs Lincoln, how was the play?
