I’m so nervous and excited I can’t sit still. I’m pacing around like a lunatic jabbering to myself with not a single soul in the house. I better close the blinds.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

Greetings from Boston!

I got sent up here for work this week. So I'm doing my best to replicate my routine for all our wins so far. Sitting alone in my hotel room watching the game.

Apologies to my room neighbors in advance.

Fox is playing Sam Cooke in the pregame.  That is the most awesome thing they've done all Postseason.

I had Sam spinning on the turntable last night.  That's a good sign.

The boy is wearing the WS hoodie I bought him that he’s worn without washing from Game 3 on.

It may jump up and celebrate on its own, but he respects the streak.

I suspect Martinez knows that scoring early is their best bet with Verlander on the bump.

There are many, many things to hate about Joe Buck.  Right now, the particular turd floating to the top of the bowl is his ridiculous, excited, rushed set-up of each pitch just as the pitcher is about to deliver.  He’s got plenty of time between pitches to set the picture, but he just rambles inanely about nonsense, and then suddenly turns into an auctioneer. 

I fucking hate Joe Buck as much as I hate giving up first inning runs.

They threw three, maybe four breaking balls on the outer half of the plate to Rendon. If you're going to do that, why the fuck would you abdicate your second baseman, especially with a runnier in scoring position?

Very different hitting between the top and the bottom.  The only out that wasn’t on the track was the called strike on ball 3.  Encouraging signs.

Top 2 ,  Jv on the bump

Cabrerra - foul, foul, inside and high, ponche on 96 MPH heat!   Have a seat!  1 out.
Zimmerman - curve on the outside edge for a strike, curve outside, curve popped up to Brantley in left.  2 out.
Robles - high, high, swinging strike, swinging strike 2 on two high balls, strike three swinging!   3 out!

Holbrook is the guy behind the plate who can't see..

After 1.5, Astros 2, Nats 1

Correa - low, curve in there for strike 1, fastball grounded to third..  5 -3  2 out
Chirinos - curve outside, grounded softly to short 6-3, 3 out

Top of the third,  Verlander pitches to...

Gomes - Chrinios crossed up with a changeup called a strike, grounded to Altuve playing short.. 4 -3,  1 out.
Turner - ball high, fly out to center?   Wife called me and I missed it.
Eaton - fastball on the outside and low, strike 1,  change up low, changeup fouled, foul, spiked in the dirt, eaton doesn't chase, wow.. just up apparently, full count, fastball high, walk.
Rendon - fastball up and in, ball 1, fastball for a strike on the outside edge, foul, curve just misses outside,  third throw over to keep Eaton tight, foul,  foul, high, full count, foul, foul, apparently just off the outside edge for a walk.
Soto - foul, curve outside, curve right in there for strike 2, ground ball to Jose.  4-3 3 out!

After 3.5, Astros 2, Nats 1

Is there a single soul in this end of our spiral arm of the galaxy who doesn’t yet know how fucking old Soto is?   Buck mentioned it the fuck again.

Guy is a good player, but an annoying dick, shaking his head like that after the strikes. 

Time to add on.

Yep.  Don’t get mad, get runs.

Verlander is really struggling to throw his slider for strikes.

This is what cost him in both Rendon ABs.

Noncompetitive sliders.

Soto is a funny guy. “Alright, alright, I see you”.

Nice recovery on his part to chill on the bull shuffle when he started it. JV would dot him if he kept it up.

Rendon is a very, very good hitter.

Soto changed his approach with 2 strikes. Both feet were flat and stance was very wide. Haven't noticed that from him before. I think his ankle is bothering him.

JV might brush him back but he's not gonna hit him intentionally. Rendon is from H-Town.

They said something the other night about him changing his stance with 2 strikes. I haven't been watching him enough to know if that's always the case.

The inability to rough up Strasburg any further would be easier to take if we were at least making him throw more pitches. The current combination is bad news.

Bottom of the 3rd.   Strasburg pitches to..

Reddick - fastball center cut for a strike, ball called inside which was clearly in the strike zone,  foul, (showed the infield shifted), ball outside, foul, swings at a changeup out of the strike zone for a K.   1 out.
Springer - strike at the bottom of the zone, ball (check swing), changeup in there for a strike, able to check on the ball, down and out, full count, rolled over to third.. 5-3  2 out.
Altuve - hackin' at the high fastball, foul;  just a bit inside... ball;  stepped away and still swung so popped it up to short.   3 outs.

After 3, Astros 2, Nats 1

Way to work out of the inning. Great catch by Brantley.

Top 4, Verlander pitching to:

Kendrick - foul on the high cheese, curve fouled just outside third, curve outside, lifted the changeup to left-center for a single..
Cabrera - high ball, high ball, foul, foul pop at home, Chrinios gloves it.   1 out.
Zimmerman - swinging strike (96), high cheese foul-tipped, curve spit at, ball; fastball down in the dirt, Chirinios blocks.. meeting at the mound, high and tight, full count. low fastball fouled away, outside for a walk.
Robles - curve in there for strike 1, swinging strike on the off-speed, couldn't check on the outside curve.. strike 3!   2 outs
Gomes - Great play by Brantley to corral that fly ball..   3 outs!

After 4.5   Astros 2, Nats 1

I lost the ball for half a second, and saw the fair signal and thought it somehow had gotten out for a half second because of Buck's inability to tell that was 20 feet short of the wall.

Bottom 4,  Strasburg pitches to

Look who.. Brantley - foul, nice curve on the outside edge, slow roller to Zimmerman at first 1 U.   1 out
Bregman - curve inside, curve in for a strike, popped up  to Zimmerman.    2 outs
Gurriel - ball low and outside, changeup inside, fastball on the inside edge, way outside, outside, walk....
Alvarez - ball inside (Strasburg thought it should be a strike), ball down, ball 3 down and in,  ball for a 4 pitch walk
Correa - Showrea time!    ball inside, ball down and out.. swung through a 93 MPH rising fastball, strike 2 down at the bottom of the zone, strikeout on a great slider.. 3 outs.

After 4, Astros 2, Nats 1

Of fucking course. Correa does Jack shit and Adam Fucking Eaton hits a home run.

Im so fucking sick of Adam Eaton. and Correa being completely worthless 95 percent of the time at the plate.

Astros are going to need at least 4 more runs.

That was a good slider.

But out of the zone.

Correa has chased ball 4 for strike 3 all post-season.  If I know it, the Nats know it.

Top 5, Verlander pitches to

Turner - strike (fb),   foul ball popped up the first base line.. Yuri tracks it down.. 1 out
Eaton - strike (curve), curve ball hammered over the right field fence.   HR.   
Rendon - foul,  foul,  in the dirt for ball 1, popped up to Reddick.    2 out
Soto - ball high and outside, ball 2 high and outside, foul, ball just high,  Upper deck in right HR.. Buck has an orgasm
Kendrick - ball, foul tip, down and out,  swinging strike,  Reddick tracks it down in deep right. 3 outs.

After 5.5  Astros 2, Nats 3.

He has done this HR thing all year. It's not a surprise.

What's annoying is that the offense has done the score-in-the-first-and-then-go-to-sleep thing again, which they've also done with disappointing frequency this year.

100 percent agree, but this game should be tied still. Why throw a totally predictable and fat fastball to the one guy that can do that? Just fucking stupid.

Bottom of 5,  Strasburg pitches to..

Chirinos - shows bunt pulls it back for a strike, ball, foul, inside, foul, strike 3.. 1 out
Reddick - foul, shows bunt but pulls it back for a ball, changeup fools Josh for strike 2,  base hit off the end of the bat to right field..
Springer - wow.. ball inside called a strike,  slider outside for a ball,  Bullshit!  that ball was down and in but called a strike,  foul, ball outside and down,   double to left... Reddick ends up at 3rd!
Altuve - swung over the top of the changeup, foul,  struck out swinging on a pitch down on the dirt.   2 outs.
Brantley - ball outside, foul,  another at-em... 6-3 on the right side of the bag.    3 outs.

You get NOTHING!

After 5, Astros 2, Nats 3

Shitty at bats with RISP.
Verlander unable to get people out with 2 strikes.
Terrible approaches at the plate the moment they lose the lead.

Still time to get back in it, but holy fuck, what a frustrating 5 innings of baseball.

Why did Reddick stop between 1st & 2nd.

To make sure Rendon didn't catch it and double him up.

This game is reminding me of Game #1

Reminds me of Game #2.  The wheels are going to come off
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.
