My Yuli shirt is losing its power... maybe I shouldn't have washed it after the last game.

Yuli says Take That!

His ability to be that quick to hammer the high inside fastball after seeing all those breaking pitches low and away was an Alou-like feat.

Gurriel also 0-2, takes low 1-2, drives a double off thre bullpen fence in left; Springer and Altuve score

His game 6 HR was in off the plate.   There's a view from on deck circle where you can see how far he pulled his hands in.

Agreed.  For me, he is the most underrated hitter in the Astros’ lineup.  Everyone knows Altuve and Bregman can hit anyone hard, but Yuli has proven he can do the same in the postseason.

Kurt Suzuki looks like Toshiro Mifune.

Yuli has become the defensive gem that Bagwell was at first.  He's been a gem to me to a long time.

Top 2

Kendrick grounds out 6-3 (Yuli pulled off bag but applied the tag)
Cabrera pops out to Correa behind the mound
Zimmerman homers to center; Cole knew it immediately
Suzuki ahead 2-0, then 2-2, 3-2, fouls a FB, greyhounds deep in the hole,  backhanded by Correa,  throw pulls Yuli,  Suzuki ruled out for avoiding the tag out of the baseline

Mid 2
Nationals 1
Astros 2

And down in the zone.  Smoltz had his scoring report spot on.

I fear for Cole tonight because Big Papi picked him to be better.. and we know that Big Papi is ALWAYS wrong.

I want to see Yordan have a better at bat.
