Definitely two different strike zones tonight.
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.

If Jake can get a hit, they all should be able to get a hit.

T3:

Altuve back to hack mode trying to hit a 5-run home run...pops to shallow RF
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

Definitely two different strike zones tonight.

The umps are at least consistent in that they’ve  had two different strike zones in every game this series

Yuli is a pop-up factory right now.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

So the Astros have four guys in a row tonight hitting:  .056, .176, .063, and .000.

I really thought that last night they were showing signs of starting to hit again, but tonight is back to the same dispiriting stuff.

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

T4:

Correa singles up the middle
Alvarez...ball..takes a pitch 4 inches farther outside for a strike...2-1...flies out F7
Chirinos...quickly down 0-2...strikes out swinging at a high fastball a foot outside
Marisnick...quickly down -2...strikes out swinging at a high fastball

For the fourth inning a row...the Astros strand runners...Yankees lead 4-1

0-2, 0-2, over and over again.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

And one went down.  Another can't mathematically decrease any further.

I'm trying to remain positive, but they are making Paxton look like Cole.

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.

Well, if there's any silver lining to this, it's that the stress level is quite a bit lower. At least so far.
