I'm surprised not to see Rasmus in the lineup against a RHer.

Nice quick 1st for McCullers. 9 pitches, all of them strikes and a couple of punch outs.

I wanna see a better look at that.  I swear that ball looked foul. There was no chalk flying, so if it hit the line, it barely scraped the last fair molecule.

One of the things about the tandem was efficiency.  They got up to 5 innings.  But they had about 75 pitches to get there. 
Goin' for a bus ride.

7 innings, less than 80 pitches. Nice.

ETA: Apparently it's 81 pitches. I guess I can't count anymore, either.

Was that the usual swing with every once he did he take a bit off it?

I couldn't tell, not streaming too well today and a full half inning behind.

He swung pretty hard. But it was a big time hanging slider...musta looked like a watermelon coming at him.

On my screen it looked like it stopped in mid air for a about second, that has to make it easy or the hitter.

He's got the sweatshirt on. I guess so.
I would let him go back out but I'm not surprised if he's indeed done.

We go to the 9th...

3-1 Astros

McCullers back out, but probably a short leash.

Hinch out...he's gonna let Lance stay in.

Scary, though: Davis is certainly capable of tying things up.

What a great exhibition by McCullers. Still bringing it at 96 in the 9th, and then had the balls to go off-speed to get Davis.

Meanwhile, back in Perth, we have one out in the bottom of the eighth...

The new MLBtv format seems to have a better picture and never seems to crash but it hangs and lags a lot.

The first HR by Carter reminded me of Mo Alou. Pulled his hands in and hit an inside pitch 900 feet.

Karter can make his HRs look easy but damn until he gets his stroke he sucks.  That drives me nuts about him, how long do you have to go in a season before that stroke comes?

I heard it and he has played better since I started spelling his name the way I do.  It's my streak and I'm not messing with it.

He's earned Kris Karter the hard way, but he's also earned some patience and some admiration.  What a weird, great team.

I don't find 72 strike outs funny,  I'll make a deal with you for this season though, when he gets his batting average over his weight (.250) then I'll spell his name correctly for however long he keeps it there.

And I have no clue the Carmondez reference and I haven't cared enough to figure it out.

The point of someone like Carter is not to see if he can get his AVG over .250. Sure, it would be nice, but he can hit .230 and strikeout 180 times and still be a really productive hitter.

Our Roberto Hernandez was known as Fausto Carmona when he first made his splash with the Indians circa 2007-10. False identity.
