T1:

Burns grounds the first pitch to 3B, Lowrie kicks it...reaches on E5
Canha strikes out swinging
Lawrie pops out F3 right at the 1B bag
Valencia bounces one to 2B, but the shift....Burns to 2B
Butler...full count...walks to load the bases
Semien taps on back to the mound, Kazmir almost throws it into RF, but it's a 1-3 putout to end the inning

No score

B1:

Altuve doubles to LCF, over the LFers head
Altuve moves to 3B on a wild pitch
Springer...infield in...full count...walks
Springer steals 2B
Correa sac fly F9, Altuve scores, Springer to 3B
Lowrie...infield in...doubles to LCF, Springer scores
Lowrie moves to 3B on a wild pitch, the throw goes into LF, Lowrie shoves Semien to the ground and scores on the TE2
Rasmus walks
Gattis....3-0...walks on four pitches, Rasmus to 2B
Valbuena...of course after two straight walks, swings at the first pitch in the dirt...works the count full...flies out F9, and for some reason Gattis decides to try to tag up, and is thrown out easily 9-6. 

3-0 Astros

Coulda had runners at the corner, with Gray having to keep throwing pitches, instead he jogs into an easy out standing up.

I'm late to the party, but I did see before the game that the #9 hitter was batting something like .074, and was therefore due to punish the Astros. At least they've retired Valencia in one of his four plate appearances.

He gave it a ride, but the ballpark's pretty deep out there. If he'd hit it 20 feet to the left, it would have gone into the middle of the Crawford Boxes.

GATTIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.

Of course Brown made reference to Dago hill. I thought that was odd.

Yeah,  I thought they just referred to it as "The Hill" these days.

Wow, what a relay throw from Correa.  I thought they had no shot at him.

Same here. Hell of a play.

And nice job on their part to make the 3rd out at 3rd, down by two.

Great show. It still amazes me that not only was it a classic show, but so many other good shows were tied to it.

Hit and run, squeeze, and an outfield assist via a cutoff man are by far my three favorite plays in baseball. I mean I like triples just fine and I like seeing a guy like Stassi hit his first home run. But those three rule for me.

Duffy pinch hit for him in the 6th.  I'm sure it was to get a righty in to face the lefty, not anything wrong with Castro.  I think.  And hope.

So the 19-game season-ending losing streak isn't going to happen... we've got that going for us.
When the Clark is dead, Spack will eat his spleen. Before he dies, Spack will put his posts under the knife so the Clark will see his threads wiped out forever...
