Sanchez is simply awful. They've known this for years, and yet they do nothing about it.

I love Sanchez's catching skills for the Yankees. Not a single problem with it.  None.

If not caught, at least blocked.

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

It is for the Yankee pitchers. Remains to be seen whether Verlander will get those calls.

Last night's top of the zone of *so* frustrating. I missed the GZ because I was out, but I have to think there was a lot of commentary about that.

JV's just not used to pitching with an early lead.

You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Yeah, he had him 0-2 and then couldn't find the zone. And then it hits the pole in their shitty little league RF.

That's an issue with Urquidy going tomorrow. At the very least we need to make the Yankees face the same problem.

Hicks...0-2...1-2...2-2...3-2...homers to RF...ball hit the pole...Judge scores, Torres scores...hanging cement mixer right over the center of the plate
Sanchez strikes out swinging
Gregorius pops out F5

But the damage done...4-1 Yankees

That was a home run in one major league park.

Three runs is obviously nowhere near insurmountable. I bet Greinke would rather be up 4-1 though.

T2:

Correa walks
Alvarez...quickly down 0-2...1-2...2-2...strikes out swinging at a slider in the dirt
Chirinos...quickly down 0-2...strikes out swinging at a fastball in his eyes
Marisnick...quickly down 0-2...singles to CF, Correa to 2B
Springer...flailing...strikes out swinging at a pitch at the shoulders a foot off the plate

Astros strand a pair...again...4-1 Yankees

Someone needed to tell him it was the 2nd inning, not top 9. Keep the turnstiles moving. Paxton only threw one strike, which was a gift from the HPU.

Brantley...quickly down 0-2...waves at a pitch off the plate in the dirt
Bregman...works it full...singles up the middle
Gurriel...who is hitting .059 for the series...pops out F3

4-1 Yankees

They're behind and everyone is trying to be the hero.  Altuve's approach completely changed.  That's symptomatic.

Jake comes to the plate down 0-2.  Chirinos is getting almost as bad.  He simply cannot lay off fastballs in his eyes, and the league knows it.

This is a big inning here.  Astros need to put some runs on the board and climb back in this.  Otherwise it's the 8th before they have another legitimate shot, and that will be against Britton and Chapman.

Springer strikes out looking
Altuve...works the count full...walks
Brantley...2-0...takes a ball a foot off the plate for strike one..foul...foul...strikes out swinging
Bregman rolls into 5-4 FC

Astros strand runners again...trail 4-1

T7:

Kahnle in for the Yankees

Reddick, pinch hitting for Marisnick, flies out F7
Springer singles to RF
Altuve...3-0...walks, Springer to 2B

That's all for Kahnle, Britton in

Brantley grounds into 3-6 FC, but beat the double play, Altuve out at 2B, Springer to 3B
Bregman flies out F8

Astros strand another pair of runners...now 4 for 39 w//RISP...trail 4-1

Urshela flies out F9 on a running grab by Reddick at the wall

I am not giving up on hoping for a rally, but it is impossible for me to be upset about winning 2 of 3 in NY.

I am not giving up on hoping for a rally, but it is impossible for me to be upset about winning 2 of 3 in NY.

Yeah, that's really the bottom line. They did what they needed to do.

Great job by Verlander to keep things where they were through 7. I'm a little surprised to see Peacock up, but what do I know?

Risky to start him after being out so long?

T8:

Gurriel chops to 3B, but stumbles coming out of the box and it's 5-3
Correa strikes out swinging
Alvarez...quickly down 0-2...strikes out swinging

4-1 Yankees

Maybe. I was kind of figuring that they would start Urquidy tomorrow and have Peacock as the backup plan, but Hinch and Strom must have something else in mind. I guess if Peacock finishes this out, they've got everybody else available tomorrow.

Gardner grounds to 1B...Peacock not interested in covering so Yuli has to sprint over and barely beat Gardner to the bag for the 3U
LeMahieu flies out F8
Judge...0-2...strikes out looking

To the 9th...Astros down 4-1

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.

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

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.
